A list of some Youtube channels that might help you

I’ve made a list of Youtube channels that maybe aren’t as popular as Japanese Ammo with Misa and Miku Sensei, but I think they might be helpful on your journey of learning Japanese.

Sorry, I won’t be able to reply to any comment. I’m feeling so overwhelmed because of work and studies, I’m thinking of staying away from social media and forums for some time.

Wow thanks @tatihirata!

Does anyone recommend any on this list particularly suitable for beginners listening practice?

Love the list, but … Where’s the Japanese Sesame Street Youtube channel? I use it daily to improve my listening. My vocab and grammar are good, but listening comprehension is were I struggle. They speak a bit slower in the video’s and they’re subtitled. It would highly recommend it. :slight_smile:

(Yeah, I posted the same reply on the BunPro Community. Don’t hate me. Just spreading the word.)


See my reply. Japanese Sesame Street Youtube channel is were it’s at!


Puts playback speed to 0.5

My listening is awful. Like really dire. I’m not good at paying attention in my own language tbf so I think my mind wanders and I can’t get a grip on whats being said. Will try this though thanks :+1:

Thank you so much! I’ve bookmarked a few of those. :slight_smile: Let me also suggest Sarah Moon as a rec. She’s recently switched her Japanese learning content to a new channel, but I’ve been really enjoying her Sailor Moon classic series for a few months now. She’s a professional translator who breaks every sentence down and also explains her translation process: Watch Sailor Moon Learn Japanese - YouTube

Good luck! For me it’s the kid-like approach. And it it spoken in more daily Japanese. At least, that is what I assume. The subtitles really helps me out a lot too. I tried to watch Death Note without subtitles in the Japanese dub. But it was just too fast for my liking.

Thanks for the recommendation!

I would also add Cure Dolly to this list. Their tech know-how and voice quality might not be amazing, but they’re super knowledgeable and the content is excellent for beginners and advanced learners both.

List updated!

There’s a small channel, Midori no Nihongo, that sounds interesting. It teaches using Minna no Nihongo books explaining the content only in Japanese and with drawings - like Comprehensive Japanese.

Sorry, I’ve just seen your reply! Adding right now!

I like: https://learnjapanese1616.com/

I’d like to recommend https://www.youtube.com/c/Onomappu, his videos are really great! He speaks in Japanese, but subtitles are available in a ton of other languages, and his videos always make me feel kind of … heartwarmed.

For Kanji and some listening practice my old students are making a charming YouTube channel, Kanji Man, I’ll recommend it here. It’s cute, and all, but the lesson segments are really clear and very helpful actually.
