Recently I’ve been trying to watch a lot more news in Japanese. I also picked up a couple of text books:
The first textbook has short readings that introduce a bunch of vocab according to theme: economics, politics, society, science. It’s not bad to kind of thumb through. The other is audio based: short news clips again divided into theme. I try to shadow this and record myself at the same time.
It’s hard, although I am slowly getting used to some of the vocab. Anyone else like trying to figure out what’s going on? Anyone have any tips? I think it’s definitely above my current level, but it is nice to engage with slightly more adult topics.
