My Japanese coach is useful at best, won't teach like a class, sure, but at least it has Dictionary and writing exercise, perfect for beginners like me
My Japanese Coach got:
Kinda comprehensive Dictionary, note that not all words is here, however, you can search an english word in Japanese, Japanese word in romanji, or a japanese word in hiragana
Writing exercise (hiragana, katakana, and those f#$kin' kanjis)
Speaking exercise(not all words got audio)
Step-by-step learning not like a class, but it's step-bystep, as in easy--medium--hard
I took advantage only from the dictionary though lol, but it helps if you want to get a start. However, a class is the best, don't rely on NDS, it wont do much.
Also, there's a homebrew called Japanese training, codename JLTP4, it really helps, since it has:
1. Complete Hiragana and Katakana table, unlockable via comprehensive and thorough training, perfect for remembering them, as well as "ten" and "maru"-ed versions, and example of how it's being used
2. Kanji table, not all, but it helps for the basics, unlcokable via thorough training, perfect for memorizing, complete with how it is read, like, say - (this is NOT a dash!) is read "ichi", like that
3. Writing exercise, note that My Japanese Coach is better at this, but hey, it helps!
4. Easy-medium-hard difficulty in training
5.Vocabulary dictionary and excercise
6. Numbers exercise
Helps in harmony with My Japanese Coach lol, I'm lucky to get a copy, Japanes etraining is hard to come by now, I wonder myself why
