Japanese with Teppei and Noriko

    If you've read our previous reviews (the Summer 2019 and Fall 2020 editions), you may already be familiar with Teppei and Noriko, the hosts of this new podcast. Teppei and Noriko are both experienced Japanese teachers who each have their own podcast. They've teamed up recently to help Japanese learners increase their listening skills by providing short, natural conversations in Japanese.

    There is no English in the podcast but the two speak very clearly in simple, but natural sentence structures that are perfect for intermediate learners. Even beginners will be able to pick up some basic vocabulary from the podcasts as they sometimes repeat themselves in conversation. The episodes range anywhere from 1 minute to 10 minutes, and the topics cover everyday topics. If you're looking to improve your listening and want to fully immerse yourself in Japanese only, try tuning in to an episode or two!
