6 - Expanded grammar quizzing for free users (available now!)
Now, instead of full access to just a few grammar lessons, non-renshuu pro users can get a small taste of every grammar lesson available in the site! Join renshuu pro to add thousands of additional questions and get a full mastery of the grammar you need.
Grammar quiz feedback - now, anytime you choose a grammar answer that is incorrect and a different grammar expression, the site will not only show you the correct answer, but information about the answer you chose as well. Term tinkerer - click the Tools icon on any term list to get quick access to tools that affect many terms at once. Great if you're looking to quickly mark your knowledge level of multiple terms. This existed before, but has been completely rewritten. Schedule admin - click the settings icon in Learn > Schedules to quickly manipulate multiple schedules at once! Quick term marking - when terms are introduced into a schedule, quickly mark ones you already know and don't waste time building them up. Dictionary update - tens of thousands of new terms added, vocabulary classifications so you can easily see how common a term is (must be enabled in settings), groupings of similar vocabulary terms, and alternate kanji versions now displayed. Faster site - everything loads faster on the site!
We've got some contests for the summer as well as some really easy ways for you to get some renshuu pro without paying! Stay tuned.
I have finished the transition for the grammar quizzes! All grammar lessons for expressions are now open to all users, with pro users holding onto an extra 4000 or so sentences for a more varied question set with deeper mastery.
I'm especially thrilled with the opportunity to make my own notes and personalized definitions. One thing that helps me remember kanji and vocabulary is to make note of where I encountered them. Being able to do this on the site is a major plus for me! Thank you!
And, as always, thank you ever so much for starting and maintaining Renshuu! I may not be very active in the community, but I use the site nearly every day. It's such a pleasure to use!
1) Any chance you can put the kanken kanji/vocab lists in the correct order?
2) Can you please put the "Lessons I've Made" tab back on the ME page? When you have studied many lessons, it becomes next to impossible to find anything. My list goes A to Z three times, and it would be much easier if I could find just the ones I've made.
And apparently I can't make a numbered list with punctuation here.
1) I will fix up the kanken list soon! 2)I think I have an idea for a simpler solution that will work for you - will have an update soon! 3) numbered lists with this forum editor software are ...extremely frustrating. It's an external package that renshuu uses, so I can report issues and hope they provide a fix. Could you email me a copy of the text you tried to enter which caused the issues? I'll send it their way.
Well, it's looking better but the top four kanken kanji levels are reversed--jun comes BEFORE the full level.
As long as I can find the lessons I've made easily, I'll be happy.
The numbered list was basically what I posted. I was trying to write a list with a header, but as soon as I started a numbered line (a 1 followed by a period) it would jump to the first line and was impossible to remove without backing out of the forum altogether. Basically type a sentence, hit enter a couple times then type a number followed by a period.
