That's a neat site.Ever had to deal with the Shin Bunka Shoukyuu Nihongo books? We use them essentially the same way. We have two dirnefeft lectures. Theory and praxis. In theory we essentially translate the books, learn the grammar behind it, get smacked with a buttload of kanji (passive only) and in praxis we use it all with listening tests, written exams, homeworks, speaking exams, etc. The official goal is 2,000 passive kanji (it's a bit over 2,000 official ones by now) and 1,000 active kanji after 4 semesters, though one can't escape the 2,000+ kanji as active anyway. That's not counting any seminars and other courses. Sometimes I think I'm nuts for doing this at my age!I found the most limiting thing so far is simply the lacking vocabulary. The speaking test was a horror. We could only talk about what time it is, how I get to work/university, how my apartment looks like inside and my family. Any specific details about work, or anything else no vocabulary for that yet!
