Better Than Duolingo
I’ve been interested in learning Japanese for awhile now, so I had downloaded Duolingo to learn since it’s free. However, I wasn’t really grasping much from the lessons and after only a day of using it, Duo wanted me to start learning Katakana, even though I JUST started learning Hiragana. In the end, I just kept on redoing the same lessons over and over again to try to learn Hiragana so I could move on, but it really didn’t help much and I couldn’t seem to learn any of the characters.
Out of curiosity, I started looking for other free Japanese apps and I stumbled upon this one and decided to give it a try. When I did the first Hiragana lesson, I found that it actually focused on just the characters so I could memorize them. That was just what I needed! I paid for the app after the first lesson because of how good it was and I was not disappointed. Because this app takes the time to help you learn each Hiragana character, I can now read Hiragana so much better than when I was using Duolingo, and the characters are sticking with me. I would recommend this app to anyone who wants to learn how to read Japanese, not just speak it (you can probably use Duo if you only want to learn how to speak Japanese).
This app has been really helpful so far, and I definitely recommend at least trying to free lesson. I haven’t had any problems with it yet and overall, it’s a great app for learning Japanese.
Duo not doing it for you? TRY THIS
I’m just starting off learning Japanese. I’m bored at home and have always wanted to be trilingual. Usually, I hear good thing a about you-know-what owl app… that wasn’t doing it for me… all I remembered was the sounds and not how to write hiragana or katakana. If you enjoy a good mental challenge, this is the app for you. I can not stress this enough… this app helped me learn them super quick through repetition and forcing my mind to memorize them in a fun way. I’m barely a novice at japanese but I can confidently say that this is the best app to learn Japanese by far… I started off with the free level to learn hiragana… and the characters stuck… I finally was able to remember them, so I didn’t mind spending $7 for the chance to learn a skill that will pay off in the future through new friends or business opportunities. I would definitely recommend this app to anyone looking to g eat into learning Japanese, whether it be for travel, business, or for being able to understand text.
Downloaded a few apps and played around until I was hit with a paywall and did not feel enough of an impression to pay for them. When I started using this one, its simplicity and fast pace actually really helped. I really enjoyed using the first lesson up to the paywall, and ran through it again before I decided this app is worth the $7 payment. Its simplicity just feels so clean and the lessons are very fun to do. Im actually taking away alot more than I thought I would. Anyone considering learning to read and write japanese, I fully recommend this app! The repetition is actually a serious help as I can breeze through a bunch of lessons because I taught myself to memorize characters and sounds from writing and hearing them over and over again. Im only about halfway through hirigana, but I feel as though it has already been money well spent. It will even tell you what you need to review from precious lessons to get better at the lesson you are currently on. Fantastic app!
