Learn the vocabulary, then watch the fourth promotional video in the series for The Great Detective Miss Yoda.
The difficult path of reasoning of the alibis for all the suspects.
Will the Great Detective Miss Yoda and her assistant Ayame be able to solve the incident?
Watch the above video, as this is your first viewing of the video don't worry too much if you don't understand everything immediately. Even if you don't understand what is being said, you should be able to pick up the storyline from the context.
On your second viewing of the video, try to transcribe as much of the video as you are able to. As this video is intended for Japanese audiences, everything is spoken at a natural pace and can be quite fast for learners. If you are finding it too fast to comprehend, there is some useful features in the YouTube player for playing the video at three quarter or half speed.
After watching the video a couple of times, check the vocabulary list below to help you pick up any new words you don't know. Once you have transcribed as much as you are able to, compare what you have transcribed to the script below.
Once you have famliarised yourself with the video, practice your speaking skills by shadowing the video. Shadowing is an advanced language learning technique which improves your fluency and pronunciation so that you will sound more like a native speaker of the language when you talk. The basic process is that you repeat what is being said as soon as you hear it with as little delay as possible. You should try to mimic the intonation, speed and the rhythm of the speaker, and include any interjections that they are using. If you are finding it too fast, you can do this at three quarter speed or you can pause the video regularly to allow yourself to catch up.
