New SilverSpoon Openings! (Round 6)

What Is SilverSpoon?

↑ Go here if you’ve forgotten what all SilverSpoon is 😛

Sign Up Now — Only 7 Places Available

There are only 7 places available in this round. More places will become available later, but at higher prices. So come get yours while the getting’s good!

You could learn Japanese without AJATT SilverSpoon. But you haven’t so far, have you? Maybe it’s time you gave it a try 😉 . Come. Chillax. Be spoonfeed. You deserve it. 85 weeks from now, you’ll be fluent.

Daily: Less than $2.70 / day

Monthly: Less than $2.20 / day

Full: Less than $1.10 / day

That’s A Bit Pricey, Dontcha Think?

Compared to what? Compared to spending the next 10 years wishing you knew Japanese and buying stuff that you never use and starting and stopping and failing and hating yourself?

Compared to what? Compared to buying a return air ticket to Japan, renting an apartment in downtown Tokyo and then shelling out $8000~$24,000 in tuition alone to attend a “Japanese Language School“, where you get the privilege of being in a class with 15 Chinese kids, 5 Koreans and a hot Russian chick who perennially looks like she’s on the brink of suicide…all of whom proceed to destroy you at kanji and make you feel like a total noob?

Not to mention being led by an uptight, condescending teacher who can barely conceal the fact that she thinks that you’re a stupid gaijin who’ll never really get it, and has a rigid schoolmarm mentality whereby she refuses to let you talk like a real Japanese person of your age and personality (deep breath). Compared to that?

Compared to what? Compared to trying stuff that doesn’t deliver results, that will happily leave you illiterate, that doesn’t have a date for completion, and that doesn’t have the guts to offer you a full, total, fo-shizzle refund if you’re not transformed into a person of language skills so awesome that your ethnic origin is occasionally called into question?

Compared to what?

Let’s learn Japanese for real this time, man. No more bait and switch by schools. Get the accountability you deserve. Get the results you deserve.

Let’s do it.

Fo’ Shizzle Fluency Guarantee

Guaranteed fluency: if you’re not fluent in Japanese at the end of 595 days of faithfully executing the simple, easy, quick, straightforward sprint missions fed to you daily by AJATT SilverSpoon, you can have a full refund. No questions asked.

In fact, if you just decide partway through that you just don’t like it, you can have your money back. That’s how sure I am this works. That’s how freakin’ cool I am. Just an empty email to < refund at ajatt dot com > , with the following subject: “I want a refund, but I still love you. I care about you. I promise I’ll be back again.” will suffice.

Succeed or get your money back. Fluency or your money back. The days of messing around are over. The people who take your money to help you learn should take responsibility for the results. I mean, I’m almost perfect. But even I’m not all the way there. Things happen. If and when they do, you don’t have to pay for that imperfection.

Working definition of fluency:

  • Reading: Can read a randomly selected general interest (e.g. newspaper) article aloud.
  • Listening/Speaking: Can listen to a randomly selected 60~90-second audio clip from prime-time television and repeat the dialogue.
    • Express ideas directly or via circumlocution
  • Writing: Can accurately transcribe a randomly selected audio 60~90-second spoken exchange from prime-time television or radio.

    Me too! Can’t wait to get started. I assume an e-mail will be on the way shortly. He’s going to make me change my computer operating system to Japanese, I know he is. Should have done it his way starting 11 years ago. Probably spent thousands on textbooks and classes, lived in Japan for 5 yrs, finished at least 3 textbooks and you know what it all amounted to…a big fat pile of crap. Nothing, not even a hill of beans.

    The email goes to the paypal email you used, J-domain Pig. I was wondering about that too at first.

    I love the banners where you post all the hate on RevTK here ^^ It’s possibly the most effective way to piss them off further.

    Weird… the option to pay monthly was “sold out”, but the option to pay daily or in full were still available. This was the case two days ago… what happened? Why was it unavailable to pay monthly?

    Seriously… Sign me up for the next round. I wasn’t near a computer for the past couple of weeks or so. I now have an income, and own my own computer.

    I’m in~!

    Stop selling out! Is there a pre-order list or something? Maybe a line I can stand in?
