Needs to Explain Connotations
As a student in a college Japanese class, I thought I could use this to review some of the things I learned. However, this app really needs to better explain connotations. For example, in Lesson 1 they use あなた (anata) to mean "you." While this is technically correct, almost no one actually uses it in Japan as it has a connotation meaning something similar to "dear" or "honey" in English. It is for this reason that only couples tend to use it. Most people would use きみ (kimi) if you're being informal or そちら (sochira) if you’re being formal. きみ would translate to “you” in an informal way (used when talking to friends), but そちら would translate to something along the lines of "there (near you)." そちら refers to the space someone is occupying and is considered more polite because it doesn't reference the person directly. Lastly, when using "you" you can never go wrong by just using the person's name. In English it's weird to continuously use someone's name after already mentioning it, but in Japanese it's quite normal.
TL:DR this app doesn't explain certain connotations with certain words and it could make things awkward when talking to a Japanese native speaker.
Took away my couple lessons free upgrade
Im doing this review so I can get more then 3 lessons for free because I am really liking this app. This is a beginners course which is great because books and audio that I listen and look at expects you to know a little of the language and I know completely nothing. This app is amazing and I recommend it.
That is the review I wrote in late 2016 to get a couple free lessons. Now they are gone and I'm back to my free 3 lessons when they got me 9 free lessons.
I tried to hit restore premium but it just swirls around not doing anything because it was not a premium. I have to exit completely from the app in order to see my 3 lessons again.
I don't know what to do because I want my 12 lessons back but I don't know how to do it. This is still a good way to learn so I don't want to give it a bad score or scrape it all together but it looks like I have to if I don't get the rest of my lessons I received.
So far so good!
This is great for driving home in traffic. Just let the lessons play and try to absorb as much as possible. Combined with another program like Rosetta Stone or a physical class this is a winner. Would be nice to have the option to repeat the lesson in a loop or to have an auto-advance feature to cycle through the lessons. Even BETTER would be an option to cycle through a set of lessons like “lesson 2-5” and have it just loop back around when finished. Good as it is but could be great.
