Hello, fellow student.
Welcome to the Hacking Japanese Supercourse, beta access.
As a beta user, you will get access to new course materials before they are fully integrated into the new Hacking Japanese Supercourse (HJS).
Enter coupon code HALFOFFBETA2018 to get 50% off this course. Furthermore, you will receive the beta price renewal for more than just one year.
All right, let's get into it.
HJS will be following a new flow:
You'll notice that the phases are a bit different than the previous version of HJS (which will remain accessible until the lectures in this new version are 100% complete).
Most importantly, we're now teaching actual Japanese in addition to teaching how to learn Japanese.
When complete, the new HJS will give you everything you need to go from zero Japanese to translator-level fluency.
Here's a quick rundown of our progress with updates...
(Note that updates are being made continually, so the numbers below won't be 100% accurate.)
We also have quite a few finished lessons in our Travel Japanese Course, but that is far from completion.
As you can see, we have a ton of Japanese learning resources... and yet, a long way to go until they're 100% complete. That said, I would venture to estimate that we already have more Japanese content than you would get in most university bachelor's programs of Japanese... which is pretty awesome.
When in doubt, just open a course and start reading. ^_^
Please leave feedback — errors you notice, ideas you have for shaping the future content of a page or course — in the comments section of lectures.
What if you decide tomorrow that you don't want to study Japanese?
What if you stole your mom's credit card to pay for this, and she gets mad at you?
That's chill―just email me (niko [at] nihongoshark.com) and ask for a refund within 30 days. I'll send 100% of your money back, no questions asked.
I wouldn't want you to pay for a course you don't actually do, anyways. My number one goal is to help people learn Japanese. If I can make a living helping people learn Japanese, then that's really awesome, but I would never accept money from someone who didn't think that they were getting their money's worth.
Yo! I'm Niko, the founder of NihongoShark.com. I'm also a Japanese translator, writer, and all-around language nerd. I created this site to help as many people master Japanese (any language, really) as possible.
I live in
Tokyo, Bangkok, Sapporo, Saigon, San Diego, Tokyo, San Diego, Chiang Mai, Portland, Oregon! So if anyone wants to meet up for a refreshing nama beer, I'm probably down for that. Or a coffee. Learning Japanese can be rough. But we're in this together. ファイト！
Good luck with your studies!
