Best Language App I’ve ever used.

I got this app at the recommendation of the school I’m going to be studying at in Japan and, let me tell you, it has been such a blessing. I’ve tried learning Japanese before on other apps (like duolingo) and I really struggled to understand. I always felt like I was just attempting to memorize but never actually deeply learning. This app teaches in such a different way that I not only found it fun but everything stuck so easy I was amazed with what I picked up. It gives you crazy stories and visual images to plant in your head and it says the sounds out loud, has you say them out loud as well, has you trace and draw the characters by hand. Every aspect of learning is there and that makes it work. I was so proud that I was able to actually read and sound out writing in Japanese. I was able to even write it myself. Please use this app, if you are questioning whether you should, do it. Give it a chance, you won’t regret it. And to this app and it’s creators, ありがとう! (*´꒳`*)

Do yourself a favor and exponentially increase your hiragana/katakana learning rate with this app!!!

Truly fantastic

I’ve tried many different ways to learn hiragana and usually ended up discouraged. With the building blocks and the stories this app uses to teach, Ive learned all 46 to a fairly reliable degree in just under 24 hours. Can not recommend this enough to anyone trying to learn kana
