Terrace House: Opening New Doors is a Japanese reality TV series set in Karuizawa, in Nagano Prefecture in Japan. The final (!) season came to Netflix US, which makes for the perfect opportunity to use the series to test your Japanese listening skills. Listen to (supposedly) unscripted conversations in Japanese about life goals, love, and drama. Find a character you connect with and try to imitate how they speak. Turn on the Japanese subtitles to follow along and test your reading skills at the same time.
Need more? You can always go back and watch Boys and Girls in the City or Aloha State—two more Terrace House franchises—to expose yourself to even more people and different ways of speaking.
