    There are a lot of trolls out there hating you. [@RevTK]
    Don’t worry khatz, they have no reason to hate.
    Just do what you do, sir.
    Without you, I’m certain thousands of people wouldn’t have succeeded in learning a foreign language (including me)
    Many people would have quit a few months into their endavors.

    Incredibly motivational site for people that need structure, and for people that need to be spoon-fed. 😀

    I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to post. You are very uplifting and its really inspirational. I like to read your post’s whenever I am feeling down about my Japanese ability or I’m just feeling too worn out to study, I especially needed your uplifting articles and comments right before the JLPT this past weekend! Thank you and Merry Christmas (or whatever other Holiday you might celebrate this time of year).

    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Appreciate it

    Hi Khatz, dunno if you’ll read this someday since it’s been a decade this blog has been managed but anyway.

    I heard about AJATT via MattVsJapan youtube channel. I started reading through the Table of Contents a little less than a month ago. I went through all the posts excepted some at the very end.
    I liked the motivational content, the kinda revolutionary vision you brought regarding language learning and finally, that made me read English every single day which what such a good exercise. Indeed, I’m French, straight outta croissant&baguette’ kingdom.
    I’m finished my studies last June and I’ll work starting november 1st. I bought a ridiculous amount of books from what you and Matt advised. Currently reading The Mind Illuminated, my next target is RTK and you know the song about what comes next.
    I’m setting a pretty reachable easy-winnable goal/game : 1 year for RTK vol 1 +/- 3, 1 year of sentence mining/MCD and then we’ll see if I’m still alive !

    See you there on the other side ! I might cross your path in Japan someday, recognize you and yell all my gratitude across the street, who knows ?

    Dr. Murdoch
