• 16 April 2006NHK Japanese Lessons

    I've just found out today that NHK Radio is re-running their excellent Japanese Lessons, "Basic Japanese for You" and "Brush Up Your Japanese".

    I think there are just over a hundred lessons. It looks like NHK has restarted the series within the past few weeks. So for those like me who missed the bus the first time round, hop on!

    Tip: if you don't want to install the official RealPlayer or RealOne, look up "realplayer alternative" in Google. I have "Real Alternative 1.45" installed and it works like a charm. Be careful which pack you download, though. Many so called "codec packs" are filled with spyware.

    Another solution is to download a spyware-free RealPlayer through the BBC (I haven't tried that one, please don't sue me! :) )
