News in Slow Japanese

This site is a basic but useful reading and listening resource. You’ll find short news articles read by site owner Sakura in both a slow and fast speed to suit your ability. There are three tabs for the text. The default tab shows the original Japanese text with popup definitions and translations. Another tab is for a romaji version and the third tab is the original Japanese text only. Each entry also includes a useful vocabulary listing with the word, phrase or sentence given in Japanese, hiragana and English.

Editor’s Note: There is a mix of paid and free content. As best I can tell, all the lesson materials require a premium subscription but the other content, especially the entries labels NISJ or Japanese Listening seem to be free. You can select these from the Topics dropdown on the sidebar or by the Archives dropdown toward the bottom of each page.
