About Me

Richard Heiney

What you need to know about me is that I have a great passion for languages.

It all started with Japanese. I’ve been “exposed” to Japanese for many many years (not sure how many exactly but for sure over 6 years).

During these years I went through many different books and courses. To be frank I feel like they all lack something. Every book inevitably made me go try a different one for one reason or another. Typically lack of detailed explanations.

I wasted a lot of time with countless books and courses, running around in circles.

I don’t want other people to go through the same. So my ambition is to create the best Japanese course out there. Mainly, I want to focus on comprehensiveness and completion.

Japanese is my third language. My fourth one being Mandarin Chinese.

All together I speak English, Czech, Japanese, and Chinese.

In future I would like to also learn Korean and Cantonese Chinese.

This blog will be dedicated to Japanese, but in future I intend to start a Chinese one as well.
