  5. 40 skills taught and 185 less…


40 skills taught and 185 lessons in the Japanese for English speakers course. But how many words?

So I managed to get the Japanese course working, and I've been having a look at how many skills and lessons there are.

I've counted that there's 40 skills taught and 185 lessons in the whole course.

In the first block of skills there are 34 lessons and 7 skills taught.

In the second block of skills there are 32 lessons and 8 skills taught.

In the third block of skills there are 64 lessons and 12 skills taught.

In the fourth block of skills there are 55 lessons and 13 skills taught.

So I'm just wondering now if anyone has counted or knows how many words are taught in the course and how many are taught in each block? Hope this was useful :)

In the first lesson 25 words are taught: 4 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 6 = 25.

Do 6x185 = 1110 words (roughly).


Thanks. But why 6?


My observation was that this is the common number of words thought in a single lesson.

Usually it moves between 5 to 8, I believe.


Ah ok. Fair enough
