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.
