Lately I’ve been in full Japanese study mode, seeing as the JLPT is only 3 months away! ( ┌`ｏ´ )┌
As well as testing your grammar and vocabulary, the JLPT also tests your listening. This is why I whenever I watch anime, dramas or Japanese movies, I make sure I watch it in Japanese. It’s a great way to practice listening to things that have not been staged for the purpose of a class, therefore hearing natural Japanese. However, in the last few months I’ve also subscribed to this YouTube channel called Bilingirl English, run by Chika. I think its original purpose was to help Japanese people learn English, but I it can also be used in reverse to help foreigners learn Japanese! The videos are great for learning grammar, expressions and simply fun to watch. Sometimes they even cover a bit of Japanese culture. So check it out and let me know what you think!
