Essential for Japanese study!
I love this program! iKnow's isn't a "teaching" program so to speak. It is used to help in vocabulary and forces you to read and understand words and phrases from repetition.
It's not a replacement for full on immersion, but you'll be learning words as they are commonly written like 勉強する (benkyousuru べんきょうする; to study) when most textbooks won't even introduce complex Kanji at that point.
It's a different approach and may not work for everyone. I've been using iKnow for over 80 hours and I feel I know a lot more than what I learned in the Genki I and II textbooks. It doesn't teach you conjugations or how things are used in context; hearing phrases over and over again you'll start to pick out things like "Hey he doesn't want to go to the library...so maybe it should look like in 行きません"
It's a bit hard to explain. But the cost of this program versus taking a class, buying expensive textbooks, or using *shudders* Rosetta Stone makes it well worth it!
Better than Rosetta Stone
I've been studying Japanese for a while, and have used several different methods to learn including Rosetta Stone. I find iknow to be more comprehensive and much more entertaining. It's an excellent way to practice and review any vocabulary.
Great app for studying your core vocab.
I love this app and would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn Japanese seriously. Audio is high quality and the sessions really help you learn at a fast and steady pace!
