My main focus at the moment is attempting to get my listening comprehension up to the same level as my reading comprehension. To do this, ideally one needs materials that one can both listen to and read. They must also be interesting materials. Such are not terribly common.
One that I found just yesterday is Nippon VoiceBlog. There’s no audio left at the site, but you can get a complete archive of it here.
This promises to be fascinating listening/reading material. It covers a wide array of cultural topics, everything from Hina Matsuri to karaoke.
I’ve just starting using Learning With Texts and intend to work through these in there. It’s perfectly suited, I think.
