    Right on. Thanks.

    And I don't think exchange groups and classes are useless, by any means. If you can sit down with someone and ask questions, and they're excited to answer, help, and practice, that's totally a good thing.

    Formal study always helps too. When I don't know a kanji or word, often times I'll end up asking one of the Japanese (kokugo) teachers if a JTE isn't around. Or I'll have to look it up myself. Usually I just ask by whoever doesn't look busy sitting closest to me.

    Usually I freak out the teachers by not knowing some basic/simple kanji compound in comparison with being able to speak the language pretty well.

    Is anyone taking a class this year? Apparently they changed it from the awful stuff last year and you can still register so I was wondering if it was any good.

    It looks a lot nicer, but I haven't heard anybody screaming about it on the facebook page like last year.

    Well i'd guess the enrollment is way down due to last year being awful.

    Well I signed up for the late term one, the class is completely different from the one last year. Seems to do a much better job of explaining things.

    Having done about half the course I think it is pretty solid. The online textbook is pretty nice by itself but they also have videos for each grammar point explaining and giving examples (They also have a phone app). Uses way too much hiragana which is annoying but at least it isn't romaji I guess.

    Finished the course a while back, might take the next level later this year but now have a nice system with a couple anki decks, slowly going through an intermediate textbook, and practicing writing kanji with those books for elementary schoolers.

    Interesting, I'm using some old tri-lingual Kanzen master N3/N2 books. I wonder if I should sign up for the next one then.

    This course is laughably easy, and it shouldn't be considering how shit my Japanese is. Am I really going to be able to take N3 after this?

    Probably the N3 isn't really that hard.

    If it is laughably easy, welcome to the shit I opted out of when I was a JET.

    It will be a cold day in hell when CLAIR gives JETs a reasonable Japanese learning program, as this is the group which has hindred English EDU for 70 years!
