Hacking Japanese Supercourse 3.0 (Premium Beta Access)

The Ultimate Course for Mastering Japanese

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.)

Phase 1:

  • Kana Mastery Course
    (100% complete.)
  • Bunkai Beast Grammar Course
    (90% complete. Audio has not yet been created/uploaded, and new versions of many lectures, though written, haven't been transferred to the course site yet.)
  • Caveman Convo Course
    (25% complete. The old version is still available at the end of the old HJS. We have the audio and flashcards ready, but the lectures are not complete.)

Phase 2:

  • Kanji Mastery Course
    (20% complete. We're working on updating the kanji deck in the previous version of HJS still. We are introducing some alternative methods for kanji learning — namely, using the vocab course in Phase 2, as well.)
  • Vocab Mastery Course
    (99% complete. The lecture pages of the course are still empty, but our amazing flashcard deck is mostly complete. We're just waiting on voice actors to finish up so we can proofread and integrate their content.)
  • JLPT N5 Course
    (100% complete. 30 grammar lessons with embedded audio, flashcards, and audio loops.)
  • JLPT N4 Course
    (90% complete. 107/138 grammar lessons finished. Audio and flashcards will be created and uploaded once we finish all of the lessons — likely by early summer.)

Phase 3:

Phase 4:

  • JLPT N1 Grammar Course
    (67/120 grammar lessons finished. Audio and flashcards pending lesson completion.)
  • Flashcard Demigod Course
    (This course will never be "finished," per se. It's just a place we'll be sharing creative ways to create study materials. And we're always discovering new things!)

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. ^_^

30-Day Money Back Guarantee

No-Questions Asked

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.

Sincerely,

Niko

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!

The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.

It depends on which plan you sign up for―monthly or annual. All of the flashcards and audio files are downloadable, though. So those are yours to keep even if you cancel.
