I just did the Milestone for Unit 3, and got 100%. ^_^
Unit 4 is Shopping. I shall wait to start that.
The Anki flash cards are really helping with my kanji recognition and vocabulary. I think I'll go and make some cards up for Unit 2.
Last night I did the Milestone at the end of the Unit and passed with flying colors. Yay, me.
Well, I guess tonight I'll get to see what Unit 3 has in store.
I just did the Unit 1 Milestone, which was quite different from the Lessons. The Milestone is a first-person story in pictures and you supply your part of the dialog. The other people in the story say their lines and you respond by speaking, and if you fail a couple of times to say what you're supposed to, it will provide the written line for you and then you say it. I didn't get as bad as this, but I'd guess that if you still fail it a couple times more, it would say it and then ask for you to repeat.
I did have a bit of a concern that it might not want exactly what I might say. Lots of parts of a sentence can be left out in Japanese, but it did seem to want the responses I provided, save the one where I misunderstood the question. The milestone seems to be a good way of putting everything in a continuous context and making sure that I understood it. It was a bit short, and so didn't use all of the vocabulary I've learned, but if I want to review that, I can go back into the lessons again as well.
