Well I love the new site to start off. Much easier to navigate through and stuff :]

The quizzes seem to be somewhat glitched. I answered the quizzes for some lessons, and it gives me a grade that is too low. For example, the first one says 91% but when I review the answers, it says I got every single one correct. Retaking the test didn't change anything. The second lesson (1.1) gave me 83%. I can see the site is still being worked on in some places. I would just like to know what is going on, and to make sure it is not me.

Another question of mine: is the premium PLUS like more rocket japanese before? Is it 31 MORE lessons than before? :] Just curious.

I thank you Rocket Japanese for being so great in teaching Japanese and interacting so well.

I did notice that the glitches for the audio quizzes are fixed. I took some of the grammar quizzes and there seems to still be a minor glitch.

I took the first quiz, and I did all the questions. Well it says that I didn't answer some questions, so I re-did it and made sure I did not skip any. Once again, it showed questions it did not before. Another thing. One question asks how the japanese writing system is read. I put the answer "vertically, left to right" and it said the correct answer is "vertically, right to left." Did I miss something? I think the text was typo'd or something too.. Here's is a quote from it :

*Quote:*
Traditionally we write vertically, from right to left.
Newspapers, magazines, novels, and formal personal letters are usually written vertically and textbooks, casual personal letters, and business correspondence are usually written horizontally from left to right, top to bottom...Read More

The first line's true writing should say...

I was just wanting to confirm: Is the Japanese writing system vertically right to left, or left to right? Thanks for the other feedback you left though! Arigato gozaimasu!

I noticed this, but it said that I don't own it (you're advertising it to me, and I don't have the features). Look earlier in the forum, and it will say that i was the 51st costumer. If it's still the same, then why don't I have ownership?

Konnichiwa!

Thank you for notifying to us some problems concerning the quizzes.
We have fixed the problem about "Showing questions it did no show before" and if all 10 questions are correct - you will get 100%.

As for the question on the traditional Japanese writing system - the correct answer is: "Vertically - Right to Left" as explained in the Writing Section of the lesson.
Newspapers and formal writing is written in this way.

I hope this clarifies your questions.

I have not been able to use even the W1 writing test in Japanese. The software says to write the word or phrase in Japanese. Is it looking for Romaji or kanji? No matter what I try it always shows the "Not at all" box and all the other evaluations are grayed out. I have tried this on both a MacBook and a Windows machine.

Arigato gozaimasu.

Konnichi wa Charlie-san,

The W1 writing test is looking for hiragana and katakana. It took me a while to figure out, but I now use my MacBook at home to switch from U.S. to Hiragana/Katakana when need be.

There is also a virtual keyboard you can use on the W1 exercise, which located to the right of the field. Try using that first to get acquainted with it.
