Living Japanese is due for some change...

Within the next couple weeks I will be moving Living Japanese from it's current home with Blogger and onto my own server. I've been wanting to get back to writing for a while, but the current site is too cluttered. I'm rewriting everything and condensing many of the posts into single articles that should be much more helpful. I hope you'll bear with me if the site is inaccessible from time to time during this process, and I hope you'll enjoy the new site.

Good luck with your studies!

Many of the people that I talk to about learning Japanese are in the earliest steps of the process. Unfortunately, most of them have some interesting notions for what is required in order to learn Japanese, and clearing up some of those excuses misconceptions will help the people that really want to learn. This was originally going to be a single post, but it's turned into a series. This is the third post in the series, click here for the first post or here for the second post.
