Ratings and Reviews
I was originally using Hiragana Sensei and Katakana Sensei to practice, which are very good tools for learning kana. Then, I saw the note in the new update, and decided to check out this app. It’s very great and an interesting concept! Teaches Japanese for real-life situations, while also making it very fun! I can now use my knowledge of hiragana and katakana to read full, simple sentences and not just words. I’m looking forward to learning more! Very fun game, and I can’t wait for new additions to it.
I suggest more locations! Maybe the beach, or the train station, library, convenience store, a friend’s house, so on! In these situations, the users can see into culture and what the proper mannerisms are!
Developer Response ,
Thanks so much for the review!☺️ We're glad hiragana and katakana Sensei have been helping you practice. We've been excited to bring this new app out and hope to make learning easier and actually fun.
Stay tuned, we will be adding new quests and content regularly. And you guessed it, we will be bringing locations such as a friend's house shortly!
Unique language learning experience
This is one of the most unique apps/games to learn Japanese I have found after a lot of searching. It stands out from other language learning apps in that it has a cohesive story and real RPG-like elements, which motivates you to keep playing, improving your character and meet new and returning characters.
The only suggestions I have are adding more gameplay variations instead of only typing the pronunciation of words shown on screen. And of course more levels would be amazing, but I understand the time and effort it takes to create new content. Good job overall!!
Better learning experience than textbook
I just started using this app today and I found it very helpful. To read hiragana is a very important step for beginners so this app really encourages learners to actively read. Even the bottoms are designed in Japanese like つかうand すてる, and I got surprised when I realize I can understand it. I want to ask do I get more content everyday? I hope to see more on the app and use it as my main tool to learn Japanese , support !!
