Improve Your Japanese Listening Skill with Those Websites - Audio Books 🎧



My students always ask me, “Where can I find content that will take my listening and reading skills from genin(下忍) to hokage(火影)?”


When it comes to learning Japanese, it is always better to have a variety of resources and study materials.


Let me introduce 朗読(ろうどく)websites.


朗読(ろうどく) means “Read Aloud.” The resources on these sites are available in audio format, so you can use them as audiobooks!


Without further ado, here are 4 free websites that you can use to improve your Japanese listening and reading skills.
