In June, the Japan Foundation Japanese Language Institute, Kansai launched the Listen Together: The Songs of Japan<http://nihon-no-uta.jp/index.html> website to plenty of positive feedback. Now you can teach your students songs of varying levels of difficulty, with videos!
In July, they astounded us with the Japanese e-Learning platform “Minato<https://minato-jf.jp/>.” This website features a range of free online courses for beginners. Although most of them are self-study courses, there are also “tutor-supported courses” with live lessons from teachers.
And now, in August, they have just launched the HIROGARU<https://hirogaru-nihongo.jp/> website for higher-level learners. This modern website features audio clips, videos, vocabulary lists, and quizzes surrounding 12 different topics about Japan, Japanese culture, and language.
Please consider using all three of these amazing free websites in your classrooms! Feedback is always welcome!
