Hey guys,

I enjoyed the videos on youtube so I checked out this site and registered an account. I am an absolute beginner and would like to get started with learning japanese. However, I am a bit confused about the free content. :-) I found this matrix and it says video and audio pod casts are free. Does this include all the lessons you find when you hit "Browse Lessons" (Audio, Video, Newest Lessons)? I guess some of it is free, as I already saw it on youtube. In the FAQ it says that only the first 3 lessons of each level are free. I find this confusing.^^
Right now I can access(and download) all of the content due to the 7 day trial, so it is hard to say what content will be unavailable after the trial runs out. I would be very glad, if someone could help me identify the free content. :-)

regards,
Lufos

/edit: Ah, I just found the overview under each audio/video showing what level you need to watch/download it. So I guess problem solved. :-) But, am I getting this right? I can download every existing audio/video cast for free while my trial is running? Can I still watch/hear the stuff i downloaded when my trial ends?

Lufos8068-san,
thank you for being interested in our lessons!! :D
Our videos and audios are not always free contents, so you need to upgrade in order to have access always to
those features at any lesson of any level :flower:

I'll confirm with my team about once-downloaded files after 7 days, before giving you any reply about it.
Please allow us some time :D

Hope you find our lessons and site features worth paying membership, so that even after 7 days of trial, you'll have
access to our always-improving great materials :wink:

Natsuko-san,

I am enjoying the lessons so far. :-) And yes, a paying membership is definitely an option. As I am a poor student, money is always tight, so I would like to check out and test the features first. But i guess that's whats the trial is for. :-)

Thanks for checking with your team about the downloaded files.

regards,
Lufos

Lufos-san,
we all understand it's always difficult for younger leaners (students) to purchase membership.
Hope you can enjoy our site even if you can't purchase membership straightforward! :D

As it's after midnight here in Japan (and it's Friday), my team member might be able to get back to you
only on Monday. Hope it's still fine...

Natsuko-san,

I guess I will buy a 1 month subscription and see if I want to continue after this month. Do you know, if the stuff I downloaded will still be available after this subcription runs out? Maybe this is different from the 7 day trial. I just dont like the idea of having shareware on my pc, that's why I'm asking. I somehow feel time pressure whenever I use timed software. :-)
