Stellar App - Japanese request

This is certainly a great learning resource primarily because of all the specialized vocabulary and how to talk about spiritual matter in another language. However it would mean the world to have furigana over the Japanese kanji or at least a toggle to visualize words in hiragana too. I know that as is we are in touch with how actual Japanese works but for learners it slows us down having to look up kanji combinations. Also many learning tools, even those aimed at native Japanese speakers, space words out a little bit to help students with their grammar and reading. That would be a significant improvement to the Japanese lessons as well. That said, I couldn’t thank you enough for all the time and effort put into this application. May Jehovah continue to bless you richly.

Excellent App! Truly a blessing to language learners in the ministry

Thank you brothers so very much for all the work that you are doing for Jehovah, and for helping all that are reaching out as language learners with the desire to help those who speak a foreign language to come to know our loving God and Father Jehovah! I am in a small Haitian Creole group and I am excitedly waiting for that language to be added to this app, as we are seeing an increase in the number of people who speak this language moving into our area. May Jehovah’s blessings continue with you all.

Teaching and Expanding

I started working with the Language app when it first came out so that I could enhance my Russian studies to be able to speak with interested ones at the doors. Now I’m in an area where Spanish is a primary language. Once again I’ve turned to the language app to enhance my ministry skills. AND you’ve added so much more to the app. Thank you for all the work you’re doing to inform and expand the teaching of God ‘s Word to those who might be overlooked otherwise.
