NHK for School

I know everyone knows about NHK Easy News, but has anyone tried the For School resources?

Its a collection of videos, usually around about 10 mins or more intended for Japanese school children, from preschool right up to probably about the age of 10 or so?

Its all educational material, but is intended for a young native audience so it’s probably similar to watching CBBC?


They have an app on iOS with pretty much all of these same videos. I haven’t had a lot of extra time to watch them intensely but I’ve peeked at a few and it looks like it may be a pretty good listening resource for beginner to intermediate learners.


I just found out about this site!!! :star_struck::star_struck: … why it’s not mentioned more often (I’ve heard about the NHK news so many times in comparision)??

I think it’s a great way to start immersing…
I mean, it’s not like I’ll like to go over the entire curriculum from 小学1生 and so forth, but there are some topics that are kind of cool to see how are taught to japanese children… 社会 topics for example and some 国語 as well.

So, I’m not sorry at all for the necro posting :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
