An Introduction To The Japanese Realm

Hi guys! As you already know, I'm trying to learn Japanese at the moment. After browsing & downloading several learning resources for quite some time now, I finally came across with a website which 'claims' to be one of the best resources to teach Japanese effectively. In fact, it might be the most reliable and effective one. I'm just saying.  The website is TextFugu. It sounds funny, doesn't it? But that's the name & you guys will just have to bear with it. :P

Well, I don't like promoting stuff but I think I HAVE TO at this stage. Generally, I just successfully went through the long introduction to the website. It's not that long but for a novice like me who likes to do things and expects an instant fruitful output from something, it is kind of long and draggy.  Having said that, surprisingly, I didn't feel bored going through every page of it.  The author, a guy who is only known as Koichi, has really succeeded in keeping me interested in his so-called How-To-Learn-Japanese 'textbook'.  I mean everything that he says in the website does make sense to me.  Perhaps all business people have the same marketing strategy to attract their customers to buy their products - persuasion.  The only thing that preventing me from subscribing to his programme is only due to money restriction.  The programme is basically divided into two packages: Monthly OR Forever. The monthly cost for subscribing it is $20.  However, if you're a long-term kind of person, I'll definitely suggest you to opt for the latter which will only cost you $120.  Let me emphasise it once again for you. You'll get the privilege of accessing the resources.... FOREVER!  That's equivalent to having to pay half a year for the former one!  You do the Maths if you don't believe me.  It's up to us to choose which suits us the best.  Oh yeah, it does have sections where you can try out things for free.

I think that's it. I'll write again about my learning progress soon (hopefully tomorrow). Till then. Salam & daaaa~
