We're excited to help you learn Japanese with some awesome YouTube channels. These are mostly run by native Japanese speakers, sharing their English learning experiences in both languages.
The best part? Most videos have both English and Japanese subtitles, so you can practice listening and checking meanings in either language. Ready to dive in? Let's go!
Chinatsu is currently living in Australia and loves learning and speaking the English language. Her goal in her channel is to create a community of people who want to expand their potential through English. Now that she is overseas, she understands that English is not something that only certain people can master. English is for everyone.
Her video content consists of her English learning, overseas lifestyle, and general wellness.
Rupa Sensei's channel is a good way to see interactions and real conversations between two English speakers. His content contains many collaboration videos with other language learners or English speakers, as well as videos of social experiences to see how people respond to the English language.
He teaches English by using references or clips from well known western films, animated movies, and even interviews of well known celebrities.
This is a great channel for those who prefer learning by listening and analysing the conversation of others, with the proper guidance and explanation from a teacher.
Ayane's channel started very recently but she has managed to gain a decent amount of followers in a short space of time. Her down-to-earth and relaxed content is easy to follow and you can enjoy going along her English learning journey together.
Also, as Ayane has no experience studying or going abroad as of now, she can be a good inspiration and give you a sense of expectation of how well you can still speak English, without having all the abroad experiences!
I'm sure many of us have seen a YouTube shorts or instagram reel pop up during our scrolling sessions of this YouTuber!
Currently, his main content is interviewing foreigners in Japan, locals in other countries and asking questions like cultural differences. One of the highlights of TAROSAC's vlogs, is where he immerses himself in local activities and shares his personal interactions with the people he meets along the way.
All his English speaking videos have both English and Japanese subtitles, so as well as simply enjoying the interviews, you can also treat them as a way to learn conversational English!
Saki-chan is from Japan, living in New York and provides viewers with a delightful blend of exploration, food, and practical advice. Her videos transport you to the bustling streets, local parks, and lively events that define New York City's unique character.
Her channel offers practical tips and recommendations for living and navigating the city. She covers topics such as transportation options, affordable accommodations, studying and working in America, English speaking advice and tips for making the most of your time in New York City.
This channel mainly focuses on teaching the viewers frequently used English phrases, simple short and useful sentences, and phrases that may have a different meaning to its literal translation.
Saya Fujihara's videos are reasonably short so it's a great way to learn a few new words or phrases a day and doesn't take up a lot of your time. She speaks in a friendly and casual way and matches the tone and meaning of the English phrases to the Japanese translations very accurately, so it's like you're learning from a friend!
...And just our last and shameless recommendation...
We've recently started our own YouTube channel where we provide tips and information on how to learn a new or multiple languages to suit everyone's individual learning system.
In the near future, we will be collaborating with other language learning related content creators, and also real users of our SewaYou language exchange app, to hear about their experiences, progress and personal learning advice.
We hope to give all the information we can so you can make the most of using our app, and see the benefits of finding and meeting a nearby language exchange partner!

Our language exchange app SewaYou is a valuable tool for anyone looking to practice and improve their language skills.
One of the key benefits of our language exchange app is that it focuses on real-life, in-person practice rather than just online interactions. By connecting users with native speakers of their target language, our app allows users to immerse themselves in the culture and practice their skills in a natural and authentic way. In-person practice is an important aspect of language learning, as it allows users to use all of their communication skills, including body language and facial expressions, which can be difficult to convey through a screen.
Additionally, in-person practice allows users to immerse themselves in the culture of the language they're learning, which can be a valuable and enriching experience. Overall, our language exchange app is the perfect place for anyone looking to practice and improve their language skills in a real-life, in-person setting.
