Lesson 5 - Speaking Session 1
Let's practice speaking Japanese!
By utilizing what you've learned so far by Lesson 4, let's see if you can carry a conversation with me in Japanese.
Play the audio files below and respond to what I say appropriately. Be sure to complete what you are saying BEFORE the next one comes up. I prepared two audio files: SLOW version and FAST version. You can also download these audio files onto your device for your listening practice on the go!
Here is a sample video to show you how my students did similar speaking assignments in the past. You may not understand all the questions asked in this video and I don't expect you to. Don't worry, you'll get there one day! These are students who have studied with me for approximately 6 months and I've got permissions from them that I share their videos with you. :)
As you progress with the course, the conversation in each speaking session will get longer and you'll become more fluent and more confident in speaking Japanese.
- Try the slow version first. See if you can understand what I am saying and if you know how to respond.
- Once you feel comfortable with the slow version, try the fast version.
- Repeat as many times as you need until you can fluently carry the entire conversation.
