Japanese!

I started the Japanese course today, and so far, the material is simple. Anyone out there who can tell me what to expect?

I personally think it will be just like their TinyCards App, which was also supposed to be coming to other platforms "soon" after the iOS launch... Don't get your hopes up high.

They released it for the web awhile ago.

I guess they don't have many programmers for android maybe?

Don't need to worry, they aren't too high.

If you're doing it on any version that isn't iOS, not much. If you're doing it on iOS...not much there, either. I was really looking forward to it, but it was rushed and shorter than any other tree.

Same, the first unit is really just numbers.

Are you seeing it available? I looked on Android and web and it says it's still hatching :/

It's called HTML, and no, it's not done. It's really rushed-looking, too.

I'm really enjoying it so far, although I am still working on the basics. Seem to be levelling up pretty quickly though haha! I've never looked at Japanese before, it's absolutely fascinating.

I'd be just happy to have the basics of Japanese. I travel through Japan often and it would be nice to know a little of the language.

It is fairly simple at the start.

Hiragana was easy... it will take some repetition but I use a lot of mental associations with symbols, but the kanji looked a bit scawy :0 For a beta course I think it's pretty good so far.
