A few more details:
Fluent Fantasy takes the entire Jalup site and organizes it into one easy to understand video game analogy. The major ideas and posts found here are completely reordered, combined, rearranged, and reinvented to create one thorough and flowing video game progression that will read like an RPG strategy guide. It is filled with many never told before personal language stories and experiences to bring life to the content, and give you a further peek into my own Japanese journey.
Fluent Fantasy is targeted to all foreign language learners. While my stories are about my experience with Japanese, it is written to appeal to anyone who is studying a language, as the advice helps you turn yourself into the “hero of your own language quest.”
The book’s core is drawn from Jalup. If you have thoroughly read through this site, you will recognize a lot in this book. However, due to all the changes and new additional content, there should still be plenty of value to any of the hardcore readers here.
