This is a note I made to post on Facebook/LJ Comms/anywhere there might be students of Japanese in the area... may as well toss it on here P:

Japanese Students in the NE Ohio area:

This summer CSU is offering two preparation courses for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT3/4, or N4/N5 by the new labels). Both courses will be taught by Lena Vidahl, CSU's Japanese professor. She has co-authored English textbooks for the Japanese and even started a business in Japan. If I remember correctly she lived there for 30 years... From my own experience in Lena-sensei's Japanese classes, she's great for any serious student of Japanese; she knows how to learn it and what we're capable of because of all the time and passion she's put into learning it herself. We're in our fourth semester with her and have just started Chapter 22 in Genki 2.

From what Lena-sensei has said about the course, we'd start by taking a practice JLPT and then go through the textbook analyzing the different kinds of questions, common mistakes, reviewing some of the difficult grammar, etc. Most likely she'll provide us with vocabulary cards (just on paper, nothing fancy, but useful). It'll be a great opportunity to make contacts with other Japanese students as well. There shouldn't be much homework due to the nature of the course, other than learning vocabulary you have to know for the test itself anyways, but the classes will still be focused, fairly intensive, and a great help to those who need to learn more kanji.

Tokyopop's current subtitley blurby thing on the cover of Mirai Nikki is "Every text could be your last".


Wtf Tokyopop, it's not texts, it's diaries, diaries, and some of them aren't cellphone diaries either xD

I guess Yuuno texts Yukki a lot like a crazy stalker but... that just sounds so corny. I don't want that on the cover of a book I wanna buy, dammit xDD xD

Ohhhhh well.
