If you’re not particularly interested in the news, choose a specific field of the Japanese news that interests you. If you’re a baseball fan, watch the Japanese sports news. If you like cars, find an automotive news podcast. If you’re into music, find some news about the Japanese music scene.
In TODAI Japanese, there are various topics of Japanese news for you.
4.4. Write down or take note of new vocabulary (but not all of new words)
When you read, watch or listen to Japanese news, you will find lots of unfamiliar words and expressions. But keeping a pen and notebook handy to write down Japanese vocabulary sometimes is not convenient for you, so you can try the notebook function in TODAI Japanese, you can mark all of the news words and study before by flashcard.
If you don’t study later, I’m sure you will forget all of them.
4.5. Read news articles aloud, use “shadowing” and audio
This is a speaking exercise that can help you improve your pronunciation and remember new vocabulary. If you are listening to Japanese audio or watching the Japanese news then you can try “shadowing”: get the text (transcript) and read along with the native speaker.
