What did you think?

To truly have this improve your Japanese, be sure to print this out and read it often. There are plenty of good words and grammar points inside. I really suggest reading these with the Rikaichain/Rikaikun plugin.

However, a good printout with notes on the side is absolutely unbeatable.
