Hey guys! So obviously this isn't the only way to study Japanese but definitely a good way to supplement your learning. Just by subscribing to a couple of Japanese beauty gurus and watching their videos while I eat my dinner I get to practise my Japanese listening. You can also help yourself learn new vocab etc by looking up words or grammar points you don't understand.
1) Asahi Sasaki - I've been following this guru for a while, she used to have a previous channel where she did crazy avant-garde looks and still does them sometimes on her new channel. She's seriously talented at make up and pretty funny too. Definitely recommend subbing.
2) Kumamiki - I only discovered this girl recently but her channel is so cute! I want to find more Japanese YouTubers like her who are into alternative/harajuku styles so if you guys know any others let me know!
3) Choicerish - Another guru I subbed recently, really like the tutorial above especially.
4) Risa Sekine - This guru is particularly chatty so really good listening practise!
I've realised the usefulness of this recently when I find myself understanding without having to think really hard about the Japanese and translate it consciously in my head - small steps! Also quite a few of these gurus add English subtitles either occasionally or with every video so even if you aren't learning Japanese it's well worth subscribing to see their tutorials anyways ^^
Do you guys subscribe to any Japanese youtubers or other youtubers who speak the language you're learning? xx
