ToKini Andy Quartet Writing Course Announcement

Aug 17, 2021

Hi Everyone, 

Thank you so much for your continued support. It’s because of YOU that we’re able to continue creating useful content for Japanese learners all around the world.

As many of you no doubt remember, our plan for the Quartet textbooks was to release premium videos on and Patreon, much like we did for Genki. We release those videos bi-weekly, and hope you are finding them useful. We also planned on releasing a separate writing course for those who wanted to have guidance for the Quartet writing sections. 

We put quite a lot of work into creating the first half of the Quartet 1 Writing Course, but in doing so we realized a number of things:

  1. The creation and maintenance of the course would require far more effort than anticipated.
  2. Correction and guidance would be far more work than we could feasibly manage. 
  3. To make it remotely possible, we would need to charge 7 to 10x more than initially planned. 

I do not feel comfortable charging such a high price for a course at this time. I also can not imagine a world in which we could manage the course right now even if we DID charge that price, and people joined. 

We’ve mulled over this for quite a few weeks now, and finally came to the conclusion that we are NOT going to release the Writing Course at this time.

I am so sorry to those of you who were looking forward to it. I hope that perhaps you can find some teachers on iTalki or something similar to help you through. If anything changes in the coming months, we will certainly keep you posted.
