  1. Japanese Course Review

    4

    Overall, I was slightly underwhelmed by this course, although it was good to have deadlines and a goal. I felt it should probably include more guides, weekly/daily vocabulary, and practice sheets, preferably print outs. More emphasis on how to read hiragana would be incredibly helpful (I was able to use free sources online) and more practical.
