I’m following a few pod casts to try and level up my Japanese before leaving New Zealand. I’m particularly fond of “English Teaching In Japan” (Thanks Chaz) to get new teaching ideas and tips, and to help me with my Japanese, I keep up to date with “JapanesePod101” , great for beginners and intermediate learners of Japanese language and culture. There is also “Learn Japanese” which is also great, but isn’t updated as often as JapanesePod. All of these pod casts are available through iTunes.
