Just a couple typos I found.

Lesson 17.6
The kana don't match romaji for the ~noda phrase examples with sagasu.

"Ookine koe o dasu na" seems to show an apostrophe instead of the "o" particle.
Similarly, "issho ni itai" seems to have an apostrophe.

I'll post if I find more.

18.6 Seems to render the "o" in "watashi to kare wa deeto o suru" as an apostrophe. Some kanji such as "sake" are also apostrophes.

19.5, 19.6, 19.7

oh, but the problem with the apostrophes appears in most of the scripts from RJP Platinum course materials.
Pascal-P July 3, 2012, 9:48 am
Yep. But it's still a typo isn't it? It doesn't appear in all the materials though, so maybe I should just list the lessons w/o the problem (笑)
2679 July 4, 2012, 4:57 am
well, if you've got so much free time on your hands, then you're free to do it
Pascal-P July 4, 2012, 12:55 pm
This is the first time I'm going through these materials though, so it counts as study

Thank you for pointing out those errors.
Something funny has happened in our system which resulted in the を particles being accidentally replaced and some of the kanji. We will work through the Platinum course to fix these over the next few weeks.

Platinum lessons -> Lesson 20.1: Rush Hours

In the conversation script, the word ABNORMAL is written as MORE THAN
以上 instead of 異常

There still are quite a few places where characters are shown as apostrophies, especially in the [language and culture] lessons (platinum course)

Rocket Japanese Platinum, Writing lesson.
Lesson "One's heart's desire".

The first example for 念 has quite some huge mistakes related to the first character of the word, which is: 残.
1.) In the illustration, the right compound of the kanji has a missing stroke
2.) The reading in katakana is misspelled: it should be: ザンネン not ゼンネン

Thanks for pointing out these mistakes! That is very helpful for us, we will work to have them fixed as soon as possible!

I'm sorry but about a sixth of the time I have a problem with the quizzes not resetting or the verbal not opening when I push the blue icon for you to say the sentence. There seem to be a lot of glitches in this program.

As you are on the topic, there is a mistake in the kanji quiz of the second lesson. For the question "konnichi ha hajimemashite", it has "こんにちわ、初めまして。" as the answer - i.e. わ instead of は。It was not problem for me, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

Where is the best place to post errors we find? I have tried sending them in via the testing page feedback button but was wondering if I should put them here instead. I did post one here (which is above - the わ and は mistake. That was in the second lesson. Since then, I have found other problems. In lesson 1.3, the role play audio is wrong (it swaps people half way through) and I have just found a couple more mistakes in lesson 1.8 today. The write it section has "コーヒーはすきですか? はい、すきです。” as the audio question, but if you type that in, it is wrong - the correct answer is given as "コーヒーはすきですか” i.e. the answer part is missing. Also, with ”サッカー”, it has "サッカー” for one of the answers and "サッカ” for another.

Thank you Mike_UK1 さん、

I have notified the errors and it should be fixed soon.

You are right about こんにちは。And it should be サッカー with the -。
