“Oyasumi Japanese with Shun” – Japanese Language Learning Podcast Review
“Oyasumi Japanese with Shun” podcast is an upper beginner Japanese language learning podcast. The podcast host’s name is, of course, Shun. Shun speaks entirely in Japanese throughout each episode of the podcast. He speaks very clearly and slow enough to easily understand each word that he is saying. Shun uses basic Japanese in this podcast, anyone that has been through at least one of the more famous textbooks for learning the Japanese language should be able to understand almost all of what Shun is talking about in each episode of the “Japanese with Shun” podcast. In fact, his podcast description says that he mostly uses Japanese from Genki 1, and sometimes from Genki 2 as well. I think the podcast is easy to understand for beginners.
You may already know Shun, if you read my review of his other podcast “Japanese with Shun”, or if you have already discovered his other podcast.
Shun began releasing episodes of the “Oyasumi Japanese with Shun” podcast in October of 2021. He has been releasing 4 or 5 episodes every month, and currently has 39 episodes. Each episode is approximately six minutes long. Shun talks about a variety of subjects on the “Japanese with Shun” podcast. Using Japanese words that can be found in the Genki 1 & 2 textbooks, he talks about things like: what he does on his days off, beer pong, hobbies, BBQ, house parties, anime, flooding, and many more topics. He really does talk about anything, like his other podcast. At the end of each podcast, he lists out some vocabulary that he used. Shun does have a Patreon where you can obtain transcripts of his podcasts if you donate monthly. He also has a YouTube channel where he uploads the podcasts. This is a highly recommended podcast as I really enjoy listening to Shun. I highly recommend his YouTube channel as well. Along with the “Japanese with Shun” podcast, he posts another podcast that he does, and will sometimes post random videos of him talking to other Japanese people.
