Ratings and Reviews

Best app for learning the basics of Japanese

Phoenix of wales

After downloading around 30+ apps and trying all the free ones first. And then waisting money on some other apps with in-app purchases I found this great app, it makes learning fun. It has audio clips for every letter / word that it teaches you, it has mini games and quizzes you on what you have learnt. Most efficient way ever of learning the language.

Some changes would make this perfect


There seem to be some sound issues, even with sound fx and music muted they will still play during the mini games.
Also, please add the option of disabling the mini games, they offer no value to me and actually deter me from using the app. They simply take too long, and are really tedious, and just not enjoyable really. Please add an option to skip them.

So much fun!


I love this! I thought it would turn out childish but I would say its fun for all age groups. The only thing I have a slight problem is that I find the lessons quite fast and I'm a slow learner when it comes to languages. Rest assured the studying corner on the app really helps me out to practice a little extra.
