Frank and the Obaasan

Have a textbook or grammar book that you find particularly helpful? What about a learning tip to share with others?

Those little stories were really great, teaching simple words one at a time. Anyone knows of other learning methods such as this ? That's just my kind of language learning approach.

I did the Frank and Obaasan thing for a bit, and found it a good help for learning words. Recently, I bought myself a traveler's phrasebook for japanese, and for picking up key sentences (this book had everything). Helped me, maybe it could work for you.

Also, it's nice to some another Canadian on here, I haven't seen many.:)

Sorry for not posting more Franks. I need to finish moving all the old ones to the Fusion database (the skin of TJP), but it takes a good bit of time. I have to reformat just about all of it and remove some JavaScript code to make it work.

After I'm done with that, I'll start with some new chapters...

The Latest Lessons links might help as well.

If you go here:
http://thejapanesepage.com/readarticle.php?article_id=27

You will find a link to all 5 episodes as they are now. Only the first 2 are in the database.

Thinking about it, I may just leave the rest as is and make new ones as HTML (like the originals). The advantage of having it in the database is it would then be searchable. But this software (PHP Fusion) limits the number of characters per page. Those lessons use a lot of hidden javascript code that I have to minimize to make it fit in the Fusion database limits. Also the bottom quiz messes everything up in Fusion, so I had to make it a separate page as HTML anyway.
