Perfect for N3 Listening

Sayuri Saying is my favorite listening course as someone at N3 level. After spending a lot of time listening to Nihongo Con Teppei beginner, Sayuri Saying has been a perfect next-level-up. The podcast’s editing, music, choice of topics, as well as the conversation episodes are always pleasant and easy to learn with and listen to. Big recommend for anyone looking to break into Intermediate listening

Goodnight Cassie ,

A must for learning Japanese

This has been a life saver to improve my listening at n2 level ♥︎

She is a great speaker and keeps the perfect level between comprehensive output and challenging vocabulary.

I love the pace of her voice and the real life topics and vocabulary she uses.

I hope to continue learning Japanese and about Japan with her 💕⭐️

Love from Mexico

Love this podcast for learning Japanese!

I love Sayuri & Mika’s conversations! They both speak at a great pace for my learning Japanese, and I also love it for learning the more feminine form of speaking (anime speech is fun for slang words, but it isn’t always practical for speaking in the feminine way)! Also, I really appreciate her conversational podcasts for language learning because you can hear the appropriate ways to respond to someone else. In monologue podcasts, you miss these details. However, Sayuri has a very calming voice so I don’t mind listening to her podcasts without guests too.
