Human Japanese is a resource for learning Japanese that takes a thorough approach, delivering in-depth explanations and great attention to detail. The course is well-designed, builds on itself in a logical way, and offers quality instruction at a very reasonable price. It functions much like an interactive textbook, meaning users will progress at their own pace and may need to implement their own study techniques. It’s available for download on Mac, Windows, Android and iOS.
The program is easy to use, and the presentation of information is well-executed, but the practice activities could be better.
There’s almost nothing missing in the way of instruction and explanations, but you’ll need to find additional practice methods.
You get a lot for the price, and there are some complementary resources that are free.
Really great explanations.
The overall tone of the written material is engaging.
The material builds on itself in a logical way.
I DON’T LIKE…
There aren’t many practice opportunities.
You may need supplemental materials for extended study sessions.
There isn’t much in the way of communication practice.
