Loved this book, the stories, the insights, 5 star

I feel a bit like the main character after finishing this book. I am grateful for the experience, but I'll miss everything about the book. The colourful and funny characters, the insights, everything.
There is nothing bad about this book. It helped me so much with my Japanese journey that I can't even tell.
I am over 40, so learning a new language definitely has its challenges. But with the help of this book I am much more confident to start a new conversation. I'll definitely continue up learning. Thank you to the authors, fantastic book.

Too Slow

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Innovative language Japanese slows the pronunciation and adds extra syllables which are not spoken at normal speed, to the point where it is unintelligible. It should be as simple as learning "wax on, wax off", then speeding it up. But if "wax on, wax off" have extra bits you don't use at normal speed, it doesn't work.
