英語力を鍛えるのには役立つ....が..しかし

普段から英語を勉強している側からするとNHK WORLD JAPANはリスニング力を鍛えるのに凄くいいと思う^_^。NewsだけでなくLiveやon demandもあるから全然飽きることなく見れる。
ただ、LiveやNewsはその時間でしか放送してないから録画機能(録画予約機能含め)があると更に使いやすくなるのではないかと思います。

あと、早送り、巻き戻し機能がないのは最悪💢
。そこを改善してほしい。

質の向上

一部のニュースキャスターのレベルが低い。Fumiko Konoyeさんは、かみ過ぎているので、滑舌を鍛え直して欲しい。

Needs some serious improvements!

I am very appreciative that there is a resource for accessing Japanese news in other languages (specifically English). The latest update has made some good improvements. However, there is still room for improvement.
1. The app needs to include a wider range of news stories, not just the “Top Stories” (i.e. sports, entertainment, local news, etc.)
2. Needs to include a search function.
3. Needs to have a “bookmark” function added.
4. Needs to include email sharing of stories. It has sharing to SNS, but not email.
5. The link within the AppStore to “app support” just takes you to the instructions and features of the NHK website news. It has nothing to do with the app itself.
