We've made a new podcast at Knock Knock English for Japanese parents/teachers interested in using some simple English expressions with their young children/students. The podcast features some basic expressions, in English and Japanese, adults can use with children naturally throughout the day. For English speakers, you can use the podcast to pick up some simple Japanese expressions you can use with your children!
We'd love to get as many subscribers as possible the first week, so please take 10 seconds right now to subscribe with iTunes by clicking here, and pass it on!
If you don't have iTunes, you can access the podcast at podomatic.
The podcast features some clips from our CD, こどもと英語で話そう! (Let's speak English with the kids!...or something to that effect.) The CD features all of the expressions in English-Japanese and Japanese-English so you can practice in an audio flashcard style, and it comes with a laminated poster including all of the expressions, great for putting on the refrigerator or using as a placemat at the dinner table. Although designed for parents, it was recorded in a gentle tone that kids enjoy as well. Unfortunately, the CD isn't well designed for English speakers looking to learn Japanese, but again, you can pick up some simple expressions with the podcast.
Thank you! よろしくおねがいします！
