Grammar Focus 1 : "OO look / sound + adjective."
Do you think watching a lot of TV is a good way to learn a new language? Oh yes, it certainly is a good way to learn a new language. I mean not only regular TV programmes, but also those internet video broadcasting programmes like YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Hulu .
If you live in Japan, I highly recommend Hulu because it has so many channels and interesting shows from Japan, as well as those from outside Japan. The site has the English version, so it's even easier to get started.
If you visit Hulu site and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, you will see the word "ENGLISH." If you click that, the site will open the English site.
Fuji TV station also has an Internet broadcasting service. Fuji TV is one of the most popular TV stations in Japan, and with this service, you can see many currently-ppopular TV shows that are only available on Fuji TV network. They have a free 31-day-trial campaign right now. So why not get the most of it while it offers a free trial campaign! It's called FOD Premium.
Another good way to learn Japanese is read books in Japanese, especially comic books. They have a lot of pictures and they have stories, too. They are fun and easy to read. You learn authentic Japanese words and phrases in context so they will stay in your memory longer. You can the culture and trends, too!
If you are interested in reading manga, Japanese comic books, I highly recommend イーブックイニシアティブジャパン eBookJapan . It is one of the biggest Japanese online e-book stores and they have all the current popular Japanese anime. They have many free e-books, too, to try out.
Oh, and one more thing. Audiobooks are also very powerful when it comes to learning foreign languages. So let me give you a link to one of the most popular Japanese audiobook site. It's オーディオブック聴き放題なら - audiobook.jp .
Many of the sites I mentioned above offer free samples and free trials. I hope you find this information useful and make use of this modern technology to boost up your language skills!
