Getting a lot of messages about Perapera for Firefox. The answer is that we are no longer updating it. The last update, we had to hire a freelancer to help fix some issues (no time these days) and barely anyone donated. I’m not sure why people stopped donating lately. I think we got about $40 and spent several hundred. I don’t say that to complain (and we don’t usually keep count anyways), but that’s basically why we are stopping the updates since it’s no longer feasible to continue them. Thank you for your support for all these years. The blog and the Chrome extensions are here to stay but Firefox just got too annoying.
If anyone wants to take it up on themselves to fix the Firefox add-on go ahead. 🙂
We have already fixed the previous issues with the latest Firefox update, but Mozilla still hasn’t verified them for Mozilla 40. It’s frustrating, but there’s not much we can do.
In the meantime, you can download the (unverified) updates at the following links:
We are aware of a problem with our plugins in Firefox 40. Currently working on a fix for this. Please bear with us!
We hope to resolve this problem in the near future. In the meantime, you can either downgrade to Firefox 39 or use our Perapera Chinese Chrome add-on. Thank you for your support as always.
When preparing for the JLPT, one of the biggest problems learners face is the large amount of Japanese vocabulary. If you live in Japan or at least get enough Japanese input then the listening section of the exam is easy enough. You can cram on the grammar and learning kanji intelligently will greatly ease your pain. With vocabulary though, there’s no getting around it. You have to expose yourself to the language and put in enough time to learn it.

I recently bought the Wisdom 2 iOS app because I had heard good things about the previous version and found a great deal for it on the iTunes store (Apparently it has been reduced to $11.99 from around $30 until the end of this month). I have been using the dictionary for the last couple of weeks and have to say that it has already taken a central role in my Japanese studies and my everyday life too.

After several false starts, I have finally begun to learn Korean seriously. During lunch breaks, I have been listening to Pimsleur Korean to ease myself into a daily study regime.
