How will Learning Japanese Get Easier?
I've been learning Japanese for a while. And I used various sources and applications, but I missed some functionality. So I decided to implement it myself.
The functionality you can see listed here, is rather a longterm goal. I'd love to get there, but for the beginning I'd like to start with a dictionary, example sentences, kanji and vocabulary flashcards and maybe a few more things.
