3 Ways to Fully Master Japanese Conversations. It’ll Feel Like Cheating

Click Here to See 3 Ways to Fully Master Japanese Conversations!

Hello Listener,

Today, we have 3 ways to help you FULLY understand Japanese conversations…simply by listening and reading along. In fact, it works so well, it’s almost like cheating.

Imagine listening to a new Japanese conversation: Oh! A word you know! Tons of words you don’t know. And…you’re lost. But, what if you had the lines and translations – everything that’s being said – to read along with? Simply by listening and reading along…

  • You understand 100% of the Japanese that you hear.
  • You stay laser-focused. It’s easy to get distracted with reading or listening alone. Here, you’re much more engaged by 2 senses at the same time.
  • Result: You learn Japanese faster. New words. New phrases. They’re all translated for you. Your listening improves. If you read out loud, your speaking improves.

How can you do this at JapanesePod101? There are 3 ways…
You already learn conversations with every lesson. But here’s how you apply this “listen and read” strategy to truly improve your Japanese. If you’re a Basic or Premium user, check these 3 methods out! If not, take advantage of the 31% OFF extension on ALL Premium plans by Nov. 2nd.

1) Brand New Feature! Get Your Lessons in Writing with Lesson Transcripts.
This is a simple but powerful tool. You get the entire transcript of a lesson, word for word. It’s our newest feature. Everything teachers say – dialogues, explanations, tips – from beginning to end, is here for you to read. Find it in the Download PDFs section of any lesson.

Print it out or save it and read along with a lesson!
Click here to check out the new Lesson Transcripts.

Get Your Lessons in Writing with Lesson Transcripts.

2) Read in Japanese or with English translations!
This breaks the conversation down so you can hear each line as much as you want. However, it’s just as useful for reading and understanding everything 100% with translations.

Find the Line-by-Line Audio inside the Lesson Materials section.

Read in Japanese, with transliterations or with English translations!

3) Read along with the In-Depth PDF Lesson Notes
Your lesson notes also carry the conversation in Japanese and English. Find them in the Download PDFs section of any lesson. On top of this, you also get in-depth notes on grammar, culture and bonus sample sentences.

Read along with the In-Depth PDF Lesson Notes

4) Sneak Peek Bonus! Captions for Your Video Lessons!
Surprise! There’s a fourth tool, but it’s not quite ready yet. Soon, you’ll be able to read along directly on the screen as you watch your favorite video lessons. Currently, this feature is being tested on several SpanishPod101 video lessons.

Read along with the In-Depth PDF Lesson Notes

Simply by listening and reading along, you’ll master all of the Japanese conversations you hear. You’ll never miss a word. You’ll understand everything with instant translations. It’s almost like cheating! Try it out for yourself.

If you’re a Basic or Premium user, start mastering Japanese conversations with these 3 study tools. If not, take advantage of the 31% OFF extension on ALL Premium plans by November 2nd and unlock our entire Japanese learning system.

5 Ways To Improve Your Japanese Speaking Skills

5 Ways To Improve Your Japanese Speaking Skills

Speaking is usually the #1 weakness for all Japanese learners. This is a common issue among language learners everywhere. The reason for this is obvious: When language learners first start learning a language, they usually start with reading. They read online articles, books, information on apps and so on. If they take a class, they spend 20% of their time repeating words, and 80% of the time reading the textbook, doing homework or just listening to a teacher. So, if you spend most of your time reading instead of speaking, you might get better at reading but your speaking skills never grow. You get better at what you focus on.

So if you want to improve you speaking skills, you need to spend more of your study time on speaking. Here are five tips to help you get started:

1. Read out loud
If you’re listening to a lesson and reading along, read out loud. Then re-read and speed up your tempo. Do this again and again until you can speak faster. Try your best to pronounce the words correctly, but don’t obsess about it. Read swiftly, emote and put some inflection on the sentences. Reading aloud helps to train the muscles of your mouth and diaphragm to produce unfamiliar words and sounds.

Read out loud!

2. Prepare things to say ahead of time.
As you may know from experience, most learners run out of things to say. But, if you prepare lines ahead of time, you won’t be at a loss for words in conversations. This will help you not only to learn how to say the words, but how to say them in the right context. A good way to prepare yourself before conversations is with our Top 25 Questions Series, which teaches you how to ask the most common conversational questions, and how to answer them, in Japanese:

Click here to learn the top 25 Japanese questions you need to know. .

3. Use shadowing (repeat the dialogues as you hear them).
Shadowing is an extremely useful tool for increasing fluency as well as improving your accent and ability to be understood. Shadowing helps create all the neural connections in your brain to produce those words and sentences quickly and accurately without having to think about it. Also, as mentioned in tip #1, shadowing helps develop the muscle memory in all the physical parts responsible for the production of those sounds. Depending on what your primary and target languages are, it’s quite likely that there are a lot of sounds your mouth just isn’t used to producing. Shadowing can be done, for example, when watching TV shows or movies or listening to music.

Each one of our lessons begins with a dialogue. Try to shadow the conversation line by line, and you’ll be mastering it in no time.

Click here to for a FREE taste of our Absolute Beginner series!

4. Review again and again.
This is the key to perfection, and we can’t emphasize it enough. Most learners don’t review! If you review and repeat lines again and again, you’ll be speaking better, faster and with more confidence.

Review again and again

5. DON’T BE AFRAID TO MAKE MISTAKES!
You’d be surprised by how many people try to avoid talking! The more you speak, the faster you learn – and that is why you’re learning Japanese. Practice speaking every chance you get: whether it’s ordering coffee, shopping or asking for directions.
