Alex is Still at It!

I’m pleasantly surprised to see this podcast continues to exist. I first started listening in 2010(Alex & Beb), before going to Japan to meet my future in-laws. I found the show to be super helpful. My studies fell off when I returned to America, but after a nine year hiatus I’m excited to study again.

Mind... blown!!

Recently, after taking a few Japanese course online, I soon realized that, for me, I needed to learn at a slower, more pragmatic pace that provided even more context and that made the learning fun and interesting (and no stress). This is exactly what I get from Learn Japanese Pod! This 60 year old feels like he’s 40 something!! My improvement is noticeable and I can’t get enough. Thank you little green monster!!

Thanks! Also question

Hello,I've been studying Japanese for the past 6 years, and this podcast is by far the best, both in terms of palatability and content. I've been cycling through each lesson (one podcast twice a day,) over and over, and it's always a joy to be able to understand more each time around. I doubt I would've been able to do this with a less edutaining podcast. Recently, to prepare better for my upcoming move, I've been adding LJP words and phrases to my evergrowing Anki deck. I'm actually moving in or around the Kyushu area in a few months, and wanted to ask if there was any specific dialect over there as opposed to standard. There is a lot of information about Osakaben, but none of my Japanese penpals have been able to given me a straight answer concerning this.PS, I am actually a fan of extreme metal, and have no doubt that, with some practice, Ami could easily join her Japanese brethren and sisteren in Coffins, Self Deconstruction, and, of course, Butcher ABC, among other lovely Japanese bands.Thanks for everything guys, へー(マジ)?

It comes in handy daily!

This podcast has really allowed me to learn while having fun! I especially enjoyed Alex's discussion about the geo-political climate of Palestine. there is a LOT of information to absorb. In addition, make sure to have a notebook, pencil, and calculator ready so you can finish the homework on time! Love the podcast!!

Fun and useful :)

This is a great podcast that breaks down the language being discussed in a fun and insightful way. Alex and Ami have an excellent rapport which makes the listener feel like they are part of the conversation. Whether listening for the first time or multiple times to reinforce the language, the vibe is fresh thanks to the well-presented content.Highly recommended!

Insightful, fun and can listen everywhere.

I found this nice podcast on Spotify. I am even listening to it while reviewing it. I don’t know how my Japanese will progress after that, but I cannot always read a book so the learning mixed with conversation makes the listening less drowsy. I can’t wait to listen to more of your chit chat (so far I am on the 8th track but so far so interesting). Keep it up!

Helping a Utah girl out

I listen to this podcast every morning since I’ve discovered it! I am a half japanese girl and my family has all moved to japan. I grew up in Utah and ever since I moved out of my parents house, my japanese is slipping. So this is an easy and fun way to listen to dialogue and learn! It helps me get conversation flow going and learn new lingo I did not know from my parents. Please keep doing good work!

What I Love most is the layout of the lessons. Easy to follow and entertaining. Thank you for the time and love put into the content!

Absolute beginner couldn’t be happier

I am just starting my journey into learning Japanese after a lifetime of enjoying anime. Looking for the top rated podcasts, this one came up and I’m so happy it did. I listen on my 1hr bus commute twice a day and I feel like Alex and Ami are riding with me having a great time.

Great practice

I’m currently a ALT living in Ibaraki and I’m currently studying for The JLPT 4. I discovered this podcast and I often use it to practice my casual Japanese skills! You know... The Japanese you actually hear in daily life! As someone who also practices Nihon Buyo, Sado and Kitsuki I’m always wearing kimono on the weekends, so it’s nice to actually speak Japanese when people ask why I’m wearing one! Thank you so much for your hard work. I highly recommend this podcast! ありがとございました

素晴らしい Podcast

I usually have trouble picking up new concepts and words and have to go over them multiple times in order to understand them. This podcast makes that process a lot smoother because of the way the hosts implement them into contextual casual examples. The lessons are always packed with important tips and useful phrases. This is a great Japanese studying supplement that really makes you feel like you're making progress. (By the way, I love Ami and Alex's music.)

Okusan approved!

This podcast is incredibly helpful and in conjunction with other apps, is a fantastic way to learn Japanese. Ami and Alex do an awesome job explaining the grammar while still making it fun. My wife gave up trying to teach me long ago but thinks the information is great and thanks to the random phrase of the week, my otousan (her dad) is always laughing. Keep up the good work! PS. I started listening to the dialog lessons at 1/2 speed and it helps. Also, Alex sounds really wasted which makes me laugh.

Learn Japanese the Chill way

Greetings! I’m planning to go to Tokyo in August. While I took Japanese in college, it’s been a veeeery long time since I’ve practiced it (忘れてしまいました!) I’m refreshing my conversational Japanese and found this awesome podcast!Alex and Ami have a great rapport and the repetition is well executed. The dialog only and PDFs are great for ‘homework’ and review. The vibe is chill and make absorbing new lessons really easy. These courses have given me much needed confidence in speaking.Keep up the great work!
