I started out with the bundle then decided on the monthly subscription. It is a great deal that will keep me busy learning for quite a long time. The different sections in each issue keep the learning interesting and build upon each other. The combination of culture, grammar, story telling, and calligraphy makes learning with Makoto more holistic and a good way to consolidate all the bits and pieces of Japanese that I know. I am hoping to go back to Japan next year. This will be a great way to get ready for it.
Great value with massive content for all levels .
I always look forward to reading some of this every day.
You guys will work hard !
Thank you so much. We are enjoying every minute of it (well, sometimes the editing gets a little boring, but other than that, every other minute!)
I want to go to Japan in a few years time and want to learn a bit of Japanese before I go. I have found The Japan Shop which helps me in learning the language. And they have so much more. Digital bundles as well as physical books, t-shirts, even mugs and kitchen utensils! These Makoto bundles are easy to go through and the subjects are always very interesting. I've bought 4 Makoto bundles (numbers 1 - 24). Downloading was very easy. I wish learning Japanese was just as easy!
Glad you are enjoying Makoto! I hope you will be ready for your future trip. がんばって！
I am a japanese teacher and I like makoto too much!! Makoto is very useful to learn and teach grammer, japanese culture, phrases, japanese country. It's a very effective japanese resource and very different from other japanese workbooks with it's full different type of content with beautiful page design. Very easy to purchase and I can download it in a few minutes after I purchase. No need to wait and pay for shipping and it's available to print out. Thanks to Yumi and Clay for Makoto. It's a great job!! I bought all makoto issues and I am looking forward to buy new ones. This is a new generation book format which includes online and printed version together. I believe that it will be very successful. I strongly recommend Makoto to japanese students and japanese teachers
I dabble in the Japanese language and these magazines are the best of all the others I have read. They are well-organized, simple and interesting to read. I would certain recommend Makoto issues to anyone who is interested in studying the Japanese language.
