When one really gets into Core 2000 it is much more than that. I found 4 verbs in the example sentences this morning that were not on my advisor's "must know list" but frankly to me were so much more relevant to communication in real life Japanese. These verbs do not seem to be on the Core 200 list. So there is real value here digging right down into all the material.

You might find the order has changed. I thought I had a similar problem but it seems to be something of a sort difference for me.

I will be interested to see the response though.

Have the words in the core lists changed? I had printed out the previous core lists and the lists seem to have been updated.

Please excuse my poor typing. I meant keiyaku.

Really like the slide show feature. There does seem to be a small problem with the sound on some of the Core 2000 words though. For example kaiyaku and senpai have no sound but the other 10 or so I viewed worked great.

What's the Inner Circle? I have heard it mention a few times now. I have a Premium Account but don't seem to be able to access this feature.
