Logo for Aizuchi (back-channeling): A key to smooth conversation
During a conversation in Japanese, the listener often gives short verbal reactions which are not replies but "Aizuchi" (Back-channel behavior). Back-channeling is very important to have smooth conversation with Japanese people.  Watch video clips provided, and study the listener's back-channeling behaviors.
