Japanese Language Webseries

A new Japanese educational web series produced by Ohio State Japanese professor Mari Noda is now available online. (Watch the trailer here.)

NihonGO NOW!, a 12-part video series based on textbooks by the same name, takes a “performed culture approach” to language instruction. The series uses performance as a unit of analysis and learning, depicting personal relationships, scenes, situations, sounds, personal perspectives, and other elements with which learners can empathize.
