Re: Hiragana Vocab List...

I recently found a program called Anki which is a flashcard program. You can download all kinds of flashcards from basic vocabulary, sentences, and kanji.

Re: How long does(should/can?) it take to get through Genki?

Hi Pinkparfait, I don't have Genki, my mom [who is Japanese] looked through it and told me I should find something a little better. I agree with Micahcowan when he says there you won't find a textbook that's "perfectly accurate/complete." I use a variety of books and one will explain something a lit...

My mom is from ...
