Thanks to Rocket Japanese, I'm improving everyday. I tested this theory by looking at a couple of pages of a Japanese manga, and I was able to read everything that wasn't kanji without stopping. I need more work on actually understanding what some of what I read meant, but that just requires more study on my part...
Anyway, I wanted to also get better at the reading and speaking parts, so I started using the Hear it! and Know it! parts more. They work exactly like I wanted them to, except for one small problem.
There will be times when I speak the word, phrase, or sentence 100% correctly, and the system will still say its not right. I'll get like a 25% or 50% accuracy rating, but all of the kana/kanji that I spoke will match exactly to the example that I'm attempting to emulate. I saved the page and made a copy of it if you would like to see it. I still love the rocket product, but I also realize that this could become an issue for other users for certain portions (such as the tests).
Thanks again for everything!
