Great work on these ezines! Just cant stop reading them ^^
Fantastic job ! Well done ! Keep up this good work. Your website and magazines are a great help for learning japanese !
I’ve been a Makoto Reader since the first issue and am always looking forward to the end of the month :)! Makoto helped me to stay tuned…otherwise I might have stopped learning Japanese. Thank you!!!!
Wow! Thank you so much. We greatly enjoy making Makoto each month, but if it weren’t for people like you who find value in it, we would have quit a long time ago!
Amazing work on the magazines. Very concise material, I think I’m in love ?.
Glad you like them! This page should keep you busy–thank you so much for becoming a lifetime member. 🙂
This is the first Makoto mag I was able to read completely to the end, showing me that (despite my repeated fears that I was just going in circles and not advancing) my Japanese has improved. I use a triple whammy strategy. After ending my three years of auditing college Japanese — which somehow left me unable to speak, read or write Japanese outside of the strictly controlled context of the textbook’s vocabulary — `i began to really progress when `i could go at my own pace. Like many, I started with Duolingo, then discovered the Japan Page / Makoto and added it, reading the beginner’s level material, the Haiku, etc but finding the last section too challenging. Finally, I added Satori Reader, which gave me regular daily practice in reading at my appropriate level. Thank to that, I can now read ALL of Makoto. I of course still have to use all the help you provide (furigana; voc and structure notes). But I have a real sense of pride in having come this far. A large part of that is thanks to The Japan Page / Makoto, of which I am a Shogun level member. Although I count every penny, the Shogun subscription is so helpful that I recommend it to anyone. I receive just about daily notes in my inbox offering a remarkably varied range of approaches and constantly stimulating me to keep on going. Arigatou gozaimasu! A sheynem dank!!!
That’s amazing! It sure is a great feeling when you suddenly realize you can now do something you couldn’t a year ago. Stopping to mark such occasions is really important, I think. I’m very proud of you!
