I know there is the resources thread with a section for listening tools and podcast recommendations but I’m kind of lost with all the options and need some directions.
My Japanese listening/speaking is really not that good I can manage to chat on Line and HelloTalk app so much better now compared to last year but my listening and speaking skill are really bad.
Someone from another forum who is using AJATT method (from what I saw preaching too lol) told me to start listening to podcast and record the anime I watch in MP3 and play them all the time even if I don’t understand.
I started listening in my car to ひいきびいき podcast when going to my job and returning home and sometimes at work too because I can work while listening to something.
Problem is, I understand 1% of what they say so my question is, am I wasting my time with this method and should I find something more beginner friendly? should I stick to this and I will eventually make sense of it? I have limited time studying Japanese so I want to make the most of it and not waste my time with a method that is is not working for me.
Also, is there more beginner friendly podcast ? or listening practice for a beginner a little bit above N5? N5 stuff is okay I can understand pretty much everything.
