  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!

SLOW Version

FAST Version

SAMPLE VIDEO

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.

  1. Try the slow version first. See if you can understand what I am saying and if you know how to respond.
  2. Once you feel comfortable with the slow version, try the fast version.
  3. Repeat as many times as you need until you can fluently carry the entire conversation.
