Hi, I am first using this site though i believe i signed up years ago. So this is like a year’s resolution. I have read a lot of good things about this site and i personally like the way it is constructed, i.e. i like the mnemonics and spaced repetition focus. What i’ve heard that i don’t like at all is that this site is not friendly to people trying to train for a JLPT.
Last year i tried to apply for a master scholarship in Japan, and i failed miserably since my Japanese level is at elementary at best. My english is also not that great since is not my native language, anyway. I really want to try this site but im concerned if it would be the right choice if so to speak to prepare to have a decent level of japanese… in my country it’s in december when the only chance to sit a jplt exam happens, so i’d like to take this year to prepare myself to pass a n3 exam and be able to have a n2 level by june 2019 when i’ll try to fight again for a place in an university.
What i’ve seen (and i don’t like) is that the site is kinda in full control of your progress… i already knew the first radicals introduced to me and i have to wait to even be able to test them again and continue to things i don’t know who for me it seems to be starting at level 4 and in the welcome tour they say that in takes months to put a single element in the Burn state, so I cannot help but have this feeling that this site is somehow built to have you take even years to complete, so yeah my concern is such, before going on and invest on it i’d like to know from your experience if this site along with grammar books can make doable my resolution.
Thank you in advance.
