John and Friends in Tokyo (Series Audio)

Tag along as John's friends help him tackle common daily tasks like shopping, paying the bills, going on dates, and more.

This fun series is presented entirely via dialog that is realistic but also easy to follow. It's a great way to become more familiar with the kinds of patterns you might hear among friends, including common speech contractions, hesitation words, good-natured teasing, and more. As always, our friendly notes help break down potentially tricky spots so that you can understand what you hear and incorporate it into your own speech. (Ongoing--on brief hiatus until May 8)
