JapanesePod101.com offers a unique learning experience that cannot be found in conventional classrooms. In addition to offering lessons that can be completed on your own time, we approve all of the content we release through a certified Japanese teacher. Here are just a few of the revolutionary advantages of our method:
Exposure to native speakers and many different kinds of voices and speaking styles
JapanesePod101.com aims to have you speaking Japanese after just one lesson! Our lessons focus on pronunciation and listening comprehension, so that you can start practicing what you learn from our professional teachers. Inside the PDF lesson notes, you will find the necessary tools for reading comprehension, and thorough explanations of phrases and key grammar points, in addition to a segment dedicated to cultural information. To address speaking practice, we have an easy-to use voice recorder on every lesson page so you can compare your pronunciation to our teachers’ and continue to refine your speaking skills.
When all the aspects of JapanesePod101.com are put together, this program provides students of Japanese with the ultimate self-study learning course.
Fresh, up-to-date content
Many Japanese teachers who live overseas have been out of the country for a long period of time and can be “out of the loop” on current words, culture, etc. This is another major gap that we fill.
Our lessons are carefully crafted to include current Japanese events, vocabulary usage, celebrities, popular culture, and so-on. While grammar may not change, we know that the nuances of the language change all the time, which is why we release new content every single week.
Borderless education on-demand all in one place
We also fill a definite demand in remote locations. Our lessons provide you with a mobile classroom, because we bring you Japanese ‘on demand’ – Japanese lessons wherever you may be.
JapanesePod101.com offers listeners a unique learning experience that delivers cutting-edge, dynamic content that can be accessed at your convenience. With the inclusion of our lesson notes, Japanese Resources Center and Premium Learning Tools, we offer a full solution that provides the material, guidance, exercises, and testing to really make the knowledge your own. And it doesn’t even stop there - our vibrant and extremely helpful community members provide each other not only quick answers to questions, but also give each other a sense of encouragement and motivation that is often lacking in other Japanese language programs.
We focus on Japanese, and Japanese only
Each language is unique, and at JapanesePod101.com we pride ourselves on developing a system that’s only about the Japanese language and Japanese culture! We have a dedicated team of Japanese writers, teachers and voice actors with years of experience teaching the language to English-speaking students, which assures you an authentic Japanese experience every time you tune in.
