Youtube listening ideas for my fellow total beginners

I’ve just been caught up in youtube and found these ‘comprehensible’ / ‘immersive’ channels which I thought you might like. Many words from early WK levels. A pleasant feeling of understanding emerges.

(apologies if these are mentioned elsewhere)

[edit - oh and please do leave your own suggestions of anything that’s helping you now at an early stage - I know there are lots of suggestions on the boards already but they generally seem totally over my head :slight_smile: so fire away]

I use Japanese with Noriko and think she is great. She does different types of podcast to suit different level beginners. There is also transcripts of her videos on her web site. Her short story collection is good for early beginners because she speaks a little slower.

I reallu like listening to Teppei’s beginner lessons. Very relaxing.

I love Nihongi con Teppei but I feel like it’s for high beginners really. You need to have built up quite a bit of vocab before you can start getting the gist, I think.

For beginners, I love Japanese Ammo with Misa, and Miku sensei on YouTube because you can choose the videos that tie in with your level.

I liked this a lot, it is really very very basic, but still useful for someone my level or lower (currently level 8 on wanikani and have previously done some classroom Japanese classes)
I especially like that there is interaction with a non native speaker
