  • AdamAdam 01/16/2019 at 12:14 pm on Free Japanese Novels that are Really Good ReadsThat's great to point out. I have used it before but a lot of readers might not know how much free content Amazon Kindle offers in terms of full volumes of manga. I've seen it as much as 5 or 6 full volumes from one...
  • Samantha Lane 01/15/2019 at 4:02 pm on Free Japanese Novels that are Really Good ReadsYay! Another great Japanese resource. Did you know ... I'm sure you do... that you can get a lot of free stuff from amazon? For instance, free manga, but only the first few volumes of a series https://www.amazon.co.jp/kindle-dbs/manga-store/free-%E7%84%A1%E6%96%99%E3%82%B3%E3%83%9F%E3%83%83%E3%82%AF?ref_=msw_cat_2293143051_0 and if I searched a Similarly, there...
  • AdamAdam 01/15/2019 at 1:51 pm on Free Japanese Novels that are Really Good ReadsSounds like a good plan. Manga is definitely an easier start, but when you are ready, take the full dive into novel world :) You'll have a lot of fun with the site when you get up to it.
  • laddr 01/15/2019 at 6:47 am on Free Japanese Novels that are Really Good ReadsWhoa this site is awesome. Thanks for highlighting those specific finds within it too. I am not ready to tackle a book yet but when I am (maybe this time next year) this will be one of my first stops, probably starting with one of...
  • AdamAdam 01/14/2019 at 4:29 pm on Jalup on Android – Live!Hello Devin, I don't have a specific date in mind just yet, but it will be an update in the near future. And it will be a free upgrade to people who have currently purchased Jalup Maximum, just like in the iOS version.
  • Haru 01/14/2019 at 2:58 pm on Becoming A Japanese Translator: Job TypesI know this school that is online and in Japan that helps with that kind of translation. It’s called Jvta. I haven’t tried it myself yet, but plan on doing it. I know this is late.
  • laddr 01/14/2019 at 7:16 am on Should I Study Vocabulary in Addition to Jalup Beginner?Over six thousand, I don't have an exact number. But about that...
  • Jim 01/14/2019 at 7:10 am on Should I Study Vocabulary in Addition to Jalup Beginner?Does anyone know approximately how many vocabulary words the entire JALUP program has?
  • Devin 01/13/2019 at 10:29 pm on Jalup on Android – Live!Hey! I was wondering if there's an ETA for Expert on Android, noticed that iOS already has cards till Expert, too bad none of my apple devices are new enough to run ios 11.
  • Chase Kolozsy 01/11/2019 at 10:37 am on Achieving Your Japanese Goals – January 2019I am adding one more goal to my list: Complete two techdegrees whose names will not be mentioned that are offered through teamtreehouse.com I might only be able to complete one, but I am going to shoot for both. The "techdegrees" teach their own respective...
  • Chase Kolozsy 01/11/2019 at 10:34 am on Achieving Your Japanese Goals – January 2019Thanks, Adam! It's good to be back :')
  • AdamAdam 01/10/2019 at 9:12 pm on Test Your Japanese MightWelcome to the site daierusama!
  • AdamAdam 01/10/2019 at 9:12 pm on Japanese Learners – Which RPG Class do you Belong to?Sounds like a good combo to me.
  • AdamAdam 01/10/2019 at 9:11 pm on Achieving Your Japanese Goals – January 2019It's been a long time Chase. Welcome back!
  • AdamAdam 01/10/2019 at 9:10 pm on 5 Ways to Order Your Anki FlashcardsThat's strange. It should definitely be there. You don't have File, Edit, Tools, Help at the top left of the screen?
  • Chase Kolozsy 01/10/2019 at 9:03 am on Achieving Your Japanese Goals – January 2019Try to catch up to where I was when I stopped studying Japanese last year, which was Jalup Immersion. I am going to just study the cards through the Jalup App because I need a huge refresher and I like the app so much better...
  • fongy 01/10/2019 at 12:34 am on 5 Ways to Order Your Anki FlashcardsMy version of Anki on Windows 10 doesn't include a Tools > Preferences menu. Only an Options menu with limited options provided.
  • NinKenDo 01/08/2019 at 5:19 am on Japanese Learners – Which RPG Class do you Belong to?Hahaha, I guess I'm a Battlemage. I'm a real grinder and tank, and tend to stick everything in Anki. But I spend a lot of time crafting Anki cards into specialised spells for the particular piece of knowledge I'm trying to obtain.

  • AdamAdam 01/07/2019 at 8:08 pm on Japanese Learners – Which RPG Class do you Belong to?Multi-class power. I like it.
  • AdamAdam 01/07/2019 at 8:07 pm on Japanese Learners – Which RPG Class do you Belong to?It's always good to be able to have healing spells, especially when you are soloing.
  • AdamAdam 01/07/2019 at 8:05 pm on Japanese Learners – Which RPG Class do you Belong to?Of course! Learning Japanese is a fairly open RPG, so dual-class is common :)
  • AdamAdam 01/07/2019 at 8:04 pm on Japanese Learners – Which RPG Class do you Belong to?I think a lot of people tend to start as fighters, because it's the simplest in the beginning. Some never the leave the fighter class, but others realize that it's not where their true strengths lie.
  • Blake 01/07/2019 at 5:39 pm on Japanese Learners – Which RPG Class do you Belong to?I'd say I try to combine the strengths of most of these. Before I started studying I did a lot of research about how to study and experimented a little to see what worked for me like the ranger and thief, ultimately doing what I...
  • Hanson 01/07/2019 at 4:18 pm on Japanese Learners – Which RPG Class do you Belong to?Started as Ranger, dual-classed to Cleric. Now it will be 90% Cleric, 10% ranger. I have a feeling that a lot of classes would dual-class with cleric, as in the end, he means stability. Something that many might not have in 1st or 2nd year...
  • Rob 01/07/2019 at 8:31 am on Japanese Learners – Which RPG Class do you Belong to?Can I dual-class? Rogue-Cleric!
  • laddr 01/07/2019 at 7:33 am on Japanese Learners – Which RPG Class do you Belong to?Fun post. I think I started Japanese as a fighter class. I didn't really know what my methodology was. I just saw the first few steps and plowed through it (kana, kanji). I enjoyed it and I really fed on the enjoyment and brute forced...
  • AdamAdam 01/05/2019 at 2:38 pm on Jalup on Android – Live!For now it's a manual process (since the app doesn't require an account and is completely offline). You send me an e-mail with your request (if you want to switch) and receipt, and I'll give you a promo code. The import/export progress works exactly the...
  • AdamAdam 01/05/2019 at 2:33 pm on Jalup MasterThanks for letting me know your interest. I may do a pre-order post similar to the way Expert was done, to see if enough people would want me to continue the series. I'm also thinking of letting the people who make the pre-order choose the...
  • Dan S. 01/05/2019 at 3:02 am on Jalup MasterI'm also interested in seeing this continue.
  • Tom C 01/04/2019 at 6:28 pm on Jalup on Android – Live!This is awesome, thanks Adam. Just wondering, you said you can transfer purchases from iOS to Android, but didn't detail how-to (only did for Anki and NEXT). I don't have to do it now, but might be purchasing soon and may switch devices after.
  • AdamAdam 01/03/2019 at 2:14 pm on What Level Are You?A very old typo, but still a typo :) I just fixed it. Thanks!
  • Jesper T 01/02/2019 at 11:35 pm on Achieving Your Japanese Goals – January 2019Keeping it simple, yet, but hopefully room for adding cards again soon. * Complete all reviews
