I had been seeing several people in the board talk about how listening to podcasts and watching anime can improve a person’s Japanese comprehension, even if they didn’t have the vocabulary skills to understand every word.
So I was thinking "how cool would it be to have a copy of Harry Potter in writing, but then listen to it on Audible… So I would effectively have “subtitles as needed” (but I could write all over my book, as I do).
I was surprised to see that I could stream FOR FREE the first Harry Potter book, ハリー・ポッターと賢者の石, in Japanese (or French or German or Spanish or English).
THANK YOU, AUDIBLE, for bringing a bright spot in these troubled times.
Woah! It’s actually 39 audiobooks in Japanese!
Nb. copyright tends to go with national laws, so I’m not sure in which countries Audible is offering this. This link is to the US Audible.
