Love the new interface, but not quite a "5" yet
I last used this app a while ago, and I am enjoying the makeover. There's a lot less going on per screen, no overlap on the text and it's pretty straight-forward.
However, I would still like to see an option to view kanji for us more advaced readers. Reading longer text in just hiragana can be tedious sometimes (and it should be a good review for anyone studying kanji). Also, the conversation in "Going to the Cinema" is not normal speed (and switches voices sometimes?!), and there may be a vocab error: a "movie director" (映画監督、えいがかんとく) isn't the same as a "company director" (社長、しゃちょう), and the lesson vocab uses the latter word...
Other than these issues, not bad! I guess the biggest concern is the conversation switching female and/or male voices (not good if you are working on listening comprehension and not reading the text; it gives the illusion of more than 2 speakers), and possibly incorrect vocab that you may not notice depending on how much Japanese you already know.
This app is very clean and quick, and I haven't had a problem with it. I especially love that the app devs forwent the use of romajī in the lessons. This forces the learner to learn to read the kana, and this is something that too few Japanese lessons do.
This is amazing!
I love this app, easy to learn Japanese for sure. I was hoping there would be a Korean learning app as well! I really want to learn the Korean language too. I hope that language can be listed in the future!!
