Touch Listen Learn Japanese
Learn to read Japanese the fun and intuitive way.

AIUEO-HIRAGANA for iPad is a discovery based learning system to learn to read Japanese Hiragana using the iPad. Unlock your natural ability to learn. Easy to understand for any age.

Touch any character for clear pronunciation. Color coded system enhances quick intuitive learning. Fun memory games to develop your ability.

AIUEO uses “TPR” : (Total Physical Response) in this intuitive learning experience on the iPad. Visuals with color codes, tactile interaction, and audio elegantly combine into a simple yet unique learning experience. It is recommended that you repeat with your own voice the sounds of each character as you learn them as well. The more senses you are using the easier and quicker you will learn.

This system is designed to set you off on the right foot quickly. The AIUEO experience is built using icons and Japanese only. You will not be finding instruction in your own native language. This is intentional. This will help you absorb yourself into the learning process. You will be unlocking your understanding with your own discoveries.

AIUEO is a powerful system to unlock your understanding and learn the fun, easy, and natural way. AIUEO is designed to allow you to figure things out on your own at your own pace. It will even automatically save where you left off so you can come back to where you left off at any time. It is suggested to work on each level at your own pace. Repeat the memory games until you feel you have really learned each one. There is no “winning” or “losing” here. Just keep playing around and you will learn.

•Minimal interface to focus on the learning experience
•Learn both Hiragana and Katakana alphabets *
•Automatically keeps track of user progress
•Color coding system using a traditional Japanese color palette
•Clear native voice pronunciation

Great app

This app is simple, clean, and to the point. The native Japanese pronunciation is phenomenal, and the easy to use UI is a huge plus. This is a great app if you want to learn japanese or if you want to become a better reader in the language. What more could you want from a language app.

I don't know any Japanese

This app really makes me want to learn, I could hardly pull myself away. the interface is beautiful and simple, the concepts build at a very comfortable pace. I wish they had this for more languages, hoping the instructions teach me some vocab :)

Great idea

Great way to learn, but a little expensive for what it does. There is a pause before each new sound that makes the pace too slow. Switching screens is also very slow. These may be issues with Game Salad though... All Game Salad apps are very slow.
