Living in Tokyo and studying Japanese, I learn a lot of new word that I wouldn't be able to learn without the full immersion experience. I eventually got the bright idea to write some of them down. At first, I just jotted words on a notepad, but now I'm syncing these words on my phone and sharing it with the world!

Learning Japanese is much more fun when you're synced with your environment. A word a day helps a lot! Words will come from textbooks as well as dramas. You can find a lot of the same words on the JapaneseVideocast Instagram and website.

This Japanese word of the day app is extra unique because the vocabulary is what I encounter living in Japan. Some words are very normal, some are a bit specific, and some words are quirky memes. However, no words will be outdated!

This app is a great complement to learning Japanese at - some words will sync with future lesson content!

Super Useful For All!

I am a big fan of the Japanese language and I'm always looking for new ways to broaden my knowledge with it. I have many different sources and I am glad I came across this one to add to it as well. It's super easy for anyone to be able to use and benefit from all the same. Whether you're a beginner or just touching up, it's perfect! I especially love the games you can play too!
(It's also helped my ability of reading Kanji too!)

Learning Japanese is already hard enough. I have tried to learn with other methods, but they seem to make it tougher. This app allows me to practice and learn whenever and wherever. You can unlock other categories to expand your vocabulary. I love how there is audio and you can check on how to pronounce the words. I'll be visiting Japan for the first time next year and this will be really helpful. Plus, I just think it's a beautiful language to learn.

Fun and educational

This app has a lovely interface that makes the learning much more fun. The quizzes are definitely a plus and the fact that you can hear the pronunciation of the words is a helpful feature. Also, creating your own word list helps you keep track of your progress.
