    So I don't really have much to say about this, not having tried the Japanese module specifically. I'm just posting as an FYI, because someone somewhere some time asked me about free/low cost online resources for learning Japanese (I'm not even 100% sure it was on this forum--my apologies if it was, and I can't remember who you are!).

    Anyway, Duolingo just added Japanese-for-English-speakers to the latest update of their free app. I have actually used Duolingo for other languages, not really to acquire proficiency, but just for fun, so I can say that I like the general platform and approach, at least for someone with a casual interest in a language. I also have friends who are language teachers, who do find it to have some utility, and enjoy the gamified elements.

    My son is interested in Japanese and I told you he hated Rosetta Stone and you mentioned this was coming soon. Thanks for letting me know it is out!

    This may not be relevant to Cookie anymore smile but I recently discovered that we have access to Mango language learning programs online through our local public library. I only discovered this by accident and wouldn't have thought to ever look there. Anyway, YMMV, don't forget to check what your library offers. smile

    He is still into Japanese. Thanks. I think he used Mango through our library at one point. I'll get with him about his Japanese this weekend and see where he is.
