Look out, it’s episode 2 of Kiki+Koko‘s listening comprehension series. While immersion is wonderful, it doesn’t give one the opportunity to actually test their skills. One can watch the news in Japanese or listen to a conversation, but without any sort of self accountability, it makes it difficult to actually use properly. This video gives you all of the tools you need for self study. It gives you actual concepts to recall just as if you were having a conversation– Monologues may be one sided, but when it comes to communicating in a dialogue, comprehending what the other person says is obviously critical.
These first two videos are geared towards higher level beginners who aren’t quite ready to listen and comprehend at full speed. This gives the opportunity to hear it once at regular pace, then once more slowly to truly give ones mind a bit of time to understand.
The subtitles on this video are unmatched as there are options to even practise reading hiragana or romaji for those who aren’t quite ready for that. But, if you’re not interested in necessarily learning Japanese, but want to understand the concepts and entertainment, you can turn on regular fully English translated subtitles. And, there are many layers so that repetition will uncover more enjoyment. This video features some hand-crafted jazz and lofi music that you can enjoy along with the new camera visuals. You’ll learn more about Kiki and Koko through these videos and hopefully have some fun.
