Please use this thread to discuss very general questions about the Genki I workbook and textbook. You need to use the threads linked below to discuss each chapter. This thread is now mainly for asking questions about the study group or finding a place to buy Genki.
We are currently reading one chapter per week, with a catch-up week every 3 weeks.
We will start again on August 21 and read one chapter every 9 days, with a catch up week every 3 weeks.
This is a group discussion, if you would like an individual study partner instead of/in addition to this group then you can always ask in this thread: https://community.wanikani.com/t/looking-for-a-genki-study-partner/
BEFORE July 11, if you wish to participate, please purchase the Genki 1 textbook and workbook. There are many places you could get it from, but amazon.co.jp is one of the best prices I could find (especially if you order other items as well.)
then, use the thread to talk about your study ideas, what you expect to see, what you’re excited about, what you’re scared about, etc.
THEN, on July 11, we will read and then discuss on the thread for that chapter. You can go at your own pace but in general try to do one chapter per week. Use this thread to post questions, discoveries, and compare answers (genki doesn’t always have an answer keys, it was made to be used in a classroom setting.) There will be a discussion thread for each chapter, please scroll down to see the links to them.
This is our current schedule, it will be updated if anything changes:
