I cannot figure out if I am able to do anything with creating my own study lists from the dictionary, or subscribing to others' lists. I went to one list and tried to add a kanji word to my drills and it appeared as if it was successful but I haven't seen it yet in my drills so I am guessing no?
Also the Kanji challenge that I read about on the blog... am I able to do this as a free subscriber? Maybe kanji will be unlocked later after I finish the katakana.
I looked on the subscribe page and it said one of the benefits was access to "Premium Lessons". But I am not sure if this is completely necessary or not. I might be better off just finishing all of the free content before paying for more, and then becoming burnt out too soon. I want to subscribe eventually, but as my son is learning with me, I will have to purchase two memberships in order for us to compete with each other on a level playing field. I don't have the cash for two memberships right now.
Maybe Taylor would be the right person to talk to about this, but I think the benefits of the paid membership are not fully clear. I would like to support this site though, as it's the best I have found so far at making learning Japanese fun. Is there a way I could possibly barter my way into a discount in exchange for some graphics work on the site?
