ＨＥＬＬＯ！ Ｉ ＡＭ ＱＵＩＺＢＯ™！We, here, at Kiki+Koko: Let’s NihonGO!! Online are always striving to create the best content to help you on your Japanese language learning journey.
January Japanese Word of the Weekday is a four-week challenge meant to help you form a positive study-habit no matter if you are an absolute beginner or continuing your studies. During which, I, ＱＵＩＺＢＯ™, guide you through many Japanese words and phrases as well as grammar.
However, throughout this special, we have many guest appearances from our very own Japanese teaching twins, Kiki+Koko. These are ‘Helpful Hints with Kiki+Koko.’ These corners hold a plethora of information from Japanese language to culture as well as many nuances that a computer robot such as myself may require assistance parsing.
Therein lies the source of this patch update!🌟
Now, during Helpful Hints with Kiki+Koko, you can listen to Japanese teachers, Kiki+Koko themselves in glorious stereophonic audio transmitted directly to your auditory cortex via your personal auditory system! And, you can also enjoy some relaxing synthesised instrumental tracks meant to keep learning engaging.
Though this supplementary audio can be listened to on its own merit with useful vocabulary and cultural explanations, you can achieve the most out of Helpful Hints with Kiki+Koko by reading along with the passage as there are many Japanese words and phrases that are presented or explained during the corner which you may better absorb by visualising.
(You see, even if you may have been told that you are an auditory or visual learner, these categories are technically moot in modern education, as all students benefit from engaging as many senses as possible!)
