Update Log

5/21/17: Here is the 400th lesson to be added to the site! Minor amounts of material was taken from Lessons 174 and 319 to create it. In addition to this, I've continued trying to perfect Lesson 1 and it split-off. Although more information has been added, the content is considerably far more accurate.

第???課: Considering...: わりに(は) & にしては  

5/20/17: Lesson 1 has been split in half. Go check it out!

第1課: Pronunciation I: Vowels

第?課: Pronunciation II: Consonants

第??課: Criticizing: くせに & くせして 

5/11/17: A new lesson has been created by extracting some info from Lesson 255 and giving the topics the attention they deserved. This also resulted in the name change of the once "When it Comes to..." II lesson to "When it Comes to..." III.  

第???課: “When it Comes to…” II: となると, となったら, & となれば 

5/10/17: Lesson 256 has been redone and renamed. A split-off lesson was also created for coverage on ~ったら & ~ってば. Enjoy!

5/9/17: Lesson 19 has been redone to fit the new format with which this revamping project entails. Enjoy!

5/7/17: Posted new lesson on interrelated phrases which use くる  to mean いう. This was created from existing material which was found in Lessons 101, 130, and 256. So, if you try looking for information related to the grammar points in the name of the lesson shown below, you should go read up on the coverage in the new lesson instead. 

第???課: ”When it Comes to..." II: と{きたら・きては・くると・きた日には・きている(ものだ)・とくれば} 

5/2/17: Posted new lesson on the particle なんて following Lesson 130:

4/19/17: Several typos fixed in Lessons 15, 16, and 17. 


・Created a detailed lesson on the words for "what" and "when" directly following Lesson 119.  

・Added more content to the new lesson posted yesterday on the word "who" to include coverage on どいつ as well as the words for "where," どこ and どちら. 


・Created new lesson about the words for "who" after Lesson 119. 

・Removed romanization in Lesson 193, fixed several typos, and added two new examples for the verb 停止する. If this lesson expands to 80 or so examples, it will be split in half to cut down on the information load for this topic. 

・Updated Lesson order to aid in the addition of new lessons in the work.
