Hey guys, awhile ago I bought the Japanese for Everyone textbook, and while it’s been good for learning some basic sentence structures, I’m feeling that it’s not very effective for me when it comes to actually learning and retaining written/spoken Japanese. I really like the way WaniKani works, because I have the pressure of knowing that if I don’t do my reviews, the backlog will only get worse. I have trouble motivating myself to work through a textbook without that sort of pressure.
The best solution would be to find an in-person class, as that’s how I learn best, but unfortunately there’s none where I live. Do you know of any online classes or software that teaches Japanese and works like WaniKani – as in, there’s pressure to do your lessons, lest you lose progress or create a pile-up?
TLDR Here’s what I’m looking for:
- Online class/Japanese grammar/speaking/writing learning software
- Consequences for not completing lessons
- Reasonably priced (I is poor college student)
