🔊 Listen Every Day Challenge - Winter 2024 ⛄❄

:cherry_blossom: :teapot: macalys’ Home Post (and Thread) :teapot: :cherry_blossom:

Hearing japanese is totally the number one motive I’m now learning the language so this challenge is kind of made for me :blush: The first time I checked a japanese word in a dictionary was because I heard it in an anime or a game, and part of my vocabulary is still coming this way.

When I don’t hear japanese, I miss it (really !), so I hope I’ll nail this challenge :yum:
As for my material, it will be games and anime mainly. However, I now listen to audio books or series (one of my dream goal is to be able to understand various dramas cds of my favorite games as soon as possible). And I’d like to listen more podcasts too, even if I don’t really know what to listen except for Nihongo con Teppei.
Also, one hour a week, I have an italki lesson when I talk a little with my teacher too. Listening some dialogs is part of our routine.

I listen a lot of j-music too, pop punk and anime music essentially, but it’s not really active listening so I won’t count it in my listening practice :sweat_smile:

:eye_in_speech_bubble: Charade Maniacs Visual Novel In a SF world, 10 high schoolers get kidnapped in order to participate in a mysterious stream. Very uneven otome but somewhat enjoyable.
