How we began...
We've desired to learn languages. We've wanted to listen and understand our new Asian homeworld. We've wanted to feel at ease around new Asian friends.
And where we got stuck was in getting example sentences. Each of us use to sit there for hours each day, cutting sentences from anime and importing them into our flashcard app. We'd spend so much time creating these "study decks", that we never spent time learning. And the sentences were here and there. There was no organization. There was no time. It was adding only whatever words were shown at that time in that particular anime series. It was overwhelming work. And it tired us out. It took away the fun and ease of studying. We'd spend weeks to build up just a hundred sentences, instead of being able to get pre-made materials with a thousand examples ready to go.
What we wanted was something simple. An organized set of scenarios, each one with an organized set of sample sentences. Each sentence interwoven as best as possible to fit into a semi-realistic conversation flow, as best as a mobile device's CPU could handle given all we were throwing at it.
We wanted simple practice, and we wanted it to look good. We wanted to simulate real conversations, to help prepare us for our real travels. We wanted another means to review what we were already learning. We wanted a supplementary practice tool, to help guide us on track in preparation for our future coming Asian lives.
And so we created StudyChat.

I thought the app was very very helpful for a beginner like me, the speaking was a little off but was still very educational!
Why not native Japanese voices?
It's pretty obvious that the male has an accent, he sounds like an American young adult. Its not ideal for practicing listening...
Great start for conversations
My Japanese is pretty weak, but this provides a quick way to learn new phrases to be used right away. I learned tenses to start, which was something I could use right away. Each "Chapter" is organized into a theme, like "At a Cafe", "Phone Conversation", or "At Home" with each chapter consisting of over 50 useful phrases to use. The good thing is that they provide example phrases to use, but are like a skeleton so once you've mastered more vocabulary, you can use that same sentence with new words.
Overall, a great and an effective app to learn Japanese. Good for beginners, but for intermediate/advanced learners, it may be too simple.
