    I’ve used several methods to study, but your “Shadowing” style works for me. I do think it works especially well if you have an intermediate level vocabulary, grammar comprehension and conversation ability. The repetitive reading of articles, stories, watching Japanese TV & programs on YouTube etc. is proving invaluable. But, SakuraSan Your “New In Slow Japanese” is an outstanding program. And the price is so very affordable, Thank You.

      I agree. I think you have to have some kind of a base to use the method. It does not work if you are not comprehending what you are shadowing, at least to a certain degree.

      Thanks for the nice comment and I am very glad you are finding it useful.

    Good to hear you’re studying hard. It helps motivate me to study Japanese harder. Exercising while listening to your Japanese articles has helped me improve a great deal. Thanks for your help.

      I find it interesting how my results are much better when I do it while walking. I guess that doing two tasks at once is a very good workout for the brain.

      I hope you can stay motivated. In my opinion, that is the key.
