It’s possible my search skills are just garbage, but I couldn’t find many recent threads on shadowing, so I decided to make this one.
I often see people talking about shadowing in responses to people’s questions about speaking, and often these books
are the ones mentioned, but aside from EtoEto (which who knows when that will open again) I haven’t heard much in detail about people’s preferred shadowing resource. My main concern with the above books is that they’re now 13 years old, so if anyone has used them and had subsequent success when speaking with natives, either in Japan, online, or otherwise, I’d love to hear from you!
If anyone has other shadowing resources they like, I’d like to hear your suggestions as well! I currently live in Japan and I’m subscribed to Dogen’s intonation Patereon videos, but I don’t often get time to practice mimicing native pronunciatoin which I’d like to do more of after the July JLPT has passed and I have some flex in my study routine.
Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated!
I guess I should also add that I’ve gone through the Pimsleur series in the pass, but feel like they’re a bit slow for my current level of Japanese.
