New edition of Shadowing - Let's Speak Japanese! a book oriented to intermediate to advanced level students (N3, N2, and N1) who want to practice conversation and listening comprehension in Japanese. This new edition includes a QR code to download all the audios.
The Shadowing methodology consists of listening to a conversation or text and trying to reproduce it as faithfully as possible. Thanks to this technique, you can practice conversation, listening comprehension, and intonation in Japanese. In addition, as the conversations are simple, the student will be able to learn new expressions and words.
In total, this book is divided into 8 units, each focusing on a specific type of conversation: with friends, with a boss, with co-workers, etc. At the beginning of each unit, it is specified to which level each conversation corresponds and whether it is a formal or informal situation. On the left-hand pages, you will find the transcription of each dialogue, and on the right-hand pages its translation into English, Chinese, and Korean.
