    Currently still continuing my advance Japanese via a once per week 3hr class at a Japanese language school. However I am sensing that I am surely, but slowly losing steam and interest in it. I am thinking it might be due to the fact that my current class frequency is only once a week (previously was twice a week, but switched since I was finding it hard to cope); or maybe teacher is too lenient and nice over our homework and class discussions (up to us if we want to hand in our work, or talk or not), and even our tests (claim that the results from my tests doesn’t matter and we are free to “openbook” it); or maybe my current class just doesn’t have a strong bond as my previous one.

    It’s a bit sad as I like my current teacher, but I am considering changing to another class where the pace is slightly tighter, and where the teacher really encourages students to question and answer.

    Am also considering maybe trying out on of those online webcam one-2-one lesson portal, kinda hesitating though as I’m rather shy and feel a bit awkward and insecure just thinking about it. shudders
    In any case, anyone have experience with one of these and have any recommendations on which platform to try? Please?

    Did beginner German and French in the past too. I find French pronunciation rather too hard for me, and did not have any, how do I say... social-ties to the language? Like I’m not SUPER attracted by the language, or the food, culture or anything much related to it. It’s ok, just not for me.

    I’m very much interested in continuing German though. I did the beginner course back at one of the Goethe school in my country, and MAN it’s expensive! So it’s the money issue that’s putting me off from continuing it. Having said that, I really hated the class while I was taking it (you need to force yourself to talk with your classmates, taking turns, and playing silly games, all of which I LOATHED!). But looking back now, I must say the classes are really useful as I can really more or less retain the stuff which I had learned. Again, also considering using the online one-2-one class platform to continue with it.
