Inspired by the recent Tofugu post about doing yoga in Japanese: Beginner's Guide to Japanese Yoga Lessons
I find that instructional videos are a great way to learn a language. Usually you can see what the words describe, so your brain can make that direct connection. And as a bonus you’re learning two things at once (the language plus whatever the tutorial is about).
So, share your favourite instructional videos in Japanese (If there’s already a topic for this すみません)
I’ll start with cooking: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7LT6gRahCIBd5AO5MUl8dQ/featured This channel has a LOT of videos, a lot of them desserts but also plenty savoury dishes and snacks. The host speaks clearly and in formal language, so I find the videos realtively easy to understand. Background music is also quiet.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLCiHQ7EbH0kVmgq6ckrIXw This one is super complex confectionary, full of ingredients I don’t even know in English and will probably never use myself. But pretty cakes! I think this one uses a bit more informal language at times, so I personally find it a bit more difficult to understand.
I’m on the search for some general fitness (cardio, strength, etc.) stuff without music. The B-Life channel mentioned in the yoga post has a few general fitness videos as well, but they still tend to be more yoga-ish from a first glance. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd0pUnH7i5CM-Y8xRe7cZVg
Although can’t forget the classic [テレビ体操] ラジオ体操第1 | NHK - YouTube
If anyboy has any recommendations for fitness channels you’d have my deepest gratitude (シ_ _)シ
