Your channel teaches everyone useful words, phrases, Kanji and Hiragana, and I absolutely love it! But I was asking myself a lot lately, are you going to make special videos for Katakana? Thank you for your answers!
Thank you! Actually, we made the Katakana videos the same time as the Hiragana videos. They’re in the JapanesePod101.com website. You can check it out anytime. Just click the link below. Thank you!
