This manual introduces new vocabulary at a dyzzling speed! As a result, have to accept to skip some new words, with the inconvenient result that the following lessons are harder to understand (since I still don't know some words I'm supposed to know at this point). What drives me completely crazy is that some new Kanji characters introduced are often not repeated later (they are written in hiragana, instead)! How are we supposed to remember these new Kanji characters if we see them only once?
