Very useful
A great resource when learning Japanese in a classroom or with a tutor. A good supplement, with great explanations.
Great so far!
I really like the conversational nature of the podcast and the focus on language functions that still highlights grammar. The only thing I would change would an extra repetition of the conversation and a transcription of the covered material in the show notes/details. I feel that would really be helpful, especially with kana and kanji added.
The best podcast for Japanese
I started learning Japanese about a month ago and I can now speak/write with friends/colleagues for casual chat. This podcast is my favorite.
Love the lessons & explanations of why certain words are used. Can't wait to get through them all.
older podcasts
the classes seem great, but it's no use if we can only listen to the episode of the week. please make older episodes available on mobile! :(
More previous episodes please!
Old IM'er
I was just turned on to this podcast... at episode 22. I can listen on NHK's web site to the older lessons on my computer, but I would love to be able to listen in my car おねがいします。Many thanks for the lessons you do provide. They are very informative.
Thanks for all the hard work
This is a pretty good series with a lot of hard work and details put into it. My only request is that put up more of the previous episodes and not the current one as sometimes we might miss downloading an episode and then we've lost it.
Please put up previous lessons!!!
I like the podcast, only grib is that if I miss an podcast update, there's no way to download those. Other than that everythings great. Thanks!!!
Very good with explanations.
Most of it I already knew but this is great for Japanese beginners as it's very easy to follow along.
plz put up the first 4 lessons

this is a great podcast and i think that if the first 4 lessons were up it would get more rateings. I've listened to the other lessons on the website and it would help to have them on the go as a podcast.. thank you
