I have been studying Japanese since I was in college and continued to study once I moved to Japan. Lately many of my friends back home and even my mother became interested in learning some Japanese to prepare for traveling here. Because of this I started my own online beginner's Japanese course! It has been really fun to plan and it keeps me motivated to keep studying and to be careful about my own grammar. If you have some friends who are interested in learning English you should try teaching them some of the things you have learned in your AEON lessons. It might be a good way to keep you motivated and it is really fun to spend time with your friends and try talking in another language!
