My tutor recently (today!) launched a Patreon page to fund & distribute some new resources he’s been working on. Currently they are:
- anki decks using conversations from Terrace House + shadowing loops
- anki decks with practice sentences for GENKI + shadowing loops
- videos covering different examples and topics in タメ口 (casual japanese)
He works with a professional voice actress to record audio for all of the flashcards / shadowing loops and is planning to release updates every month of 300 to 500 flashcards in total. I’ve been testing the decks out for him and they’ve been really great!
He’s also hoping to take his years of teaching notes and lessons and turn them into a タメ口 book eventually. He just currently doesn’t have the time since he is doing 1:1 tutoring full time.
Anyways, I definitely recommend his materials if you want to speak casual Japanese. Also, he is an excellent tutor. So, if you’re looking for some 1:1 practice, I would highly recommend him (you can find him on italki). I believe he is starting to take on new students soon.
