So you want to learn Japanese and you’ve bought books and you’ve bought tapes, but nothing to get you motivated. You’ve started and stopped so many times. Every time you’ve had to go back and review and start from scratch just to get frustrated and quit again. You haven’t been keeping up with your progress and you have no idea of what you have learned. You don’t know what to learn first or really how to do it on your own. You need help. You need something to keep you motivated and challenged. You want to ask questions and get answers back.
