Practice, review or learn new vocab in Japanese

I loved the feedback I have been getting from parents. Every student is different. There are some that learns fast and some that needs to review/practice constantly. That's the purpose I've created this post. You can review the level you want and also go ahead and learn more about the level you want as well. Good luck!
