Listening and speaking :D

Asked 7 years ago

And after I know hiragana, katakana, some kanji (around 100) and the vocabulary (as I saw, it's around 700) what can I do to improve my listening and my speaking (optional). I talk about the N5 level at JLPT.
And, do you recommend.... hiring a private teacher for Japanese if I want to study intermediate/advance Japanese or studying on my own?
I really like Japanese so I want to study it at college?

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

Practice practice practice.  There's plenty of online Japanese music and video to listen to in order to improve your listening.  No need for a private instructor there.

Also, practice practice practice speaking!  Even if it is to yourself.  The Chat room on Nihongo Master also allows for voice chat.  Try and find someone on there who is willing to practice voice chatting to help improve your speech as well.

Thank you very much for your answer. I didn't know that there is a option for voice chat. When I will know more words, I'll become more confident and I will try that option. Thank you, Taylor.
