People often assume that to study a language, you need to be working with a tutor, sitting in a classroom, or locked away in your room.
And while there are lots of good online Japanese courses, podcasts can serve a vital role in your studies. They can be an extremely effective way to improve your listening comprehension, along with other aspects of the language.
Better yet, they’re often more fun, free (or cheap), and more convenient than a lot of other resources. Though you may want to look for some more structure elsewhere.
This list will highlight some of the best podcasts for learning Japanese whether you’re at a beginner, intermediate, or advanced level.
