Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I was skeptical at first trying to learn Japanese this way- when I hear the audio and it's so fast it is overwhelming! But I find the different ways they teach you and reinforce the material to be super helpful. I can go over the lessons again and again, as well as individual portions. I love the app, it's a lot more user friendly then the website. I was ready to quit even my "free" premium trial of the website when I found the app, and it changed my mind. I put it on Bluetooth in my car and practice on my way to work. The video lessons cover different things and I find the detailed tips and visuals on pronunciation particularly helpful. Certain sounds are just not done in English, and it really is a struggle. I had a particular breakthrough today with one of the video lessons explaining the cadence of Japanese and showing how to pronounce it. Really great! I recommend learning hiragana and not relying on romanii, as it does actually make pronouncing it easier. I will be continuing with this for sure.
I was looking forward to using the audio lessons in conversation format to supplement another very successful program that has improved my speech of Spanish to a point where I am comfortable expressing (although at a low level)my thoughts in speech. I was very disappointed. In my opinion, the format to the audio conversation lessons is backwards. It is very difficult to listen to a foreign language sentence and then keep that in mind and remember it while your listening to the translation in your home language. It should be your home-spoken language first, then a several seconds pause while you try to speak it in the new language, then the translation in the new language to verify or tweak what you just spoke. That's another thing, it does no good to listen only, with no time during the lesson to repeat and practice immediately after the prompt. If you think about it, it only makes sense that a person first has a thought, then, even in our home language, we put the words together to express that thought. So that cannot happen if we first must listen without really knowing the "thought" and then have to take the subsequent translation and then try to remember how it was said in the new language. Also I tried to slow down the speech but found it was echoing so badly it did not work. I wasn't sure if that was my phone problem or your app. If I have missed any options or settings that would fix my concerns, I apologize in advance.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback. The Premium and Mobile Only plans have a feature called Review tracks. This feature allows you to hear the translation of the word and then gives a pause to give the target language answer. The target language answer is given after the pause. The Basic plan does not have this feature available at this time.
Wonderful Language Learning Program
I have been an ESL instructor for many years. I have basic fluency in two other languages as well. I recommend this program to everyone I meet who is learning another language, as it's so well done.
I have tried both the Prime subscription as well as the Basic subscription for Danish. Both are great depending on how much supplemental material you feel you need. The Prime subscription gives you the option of listening to the individual recorded segments found in both the audio lessons as well as their example material. It also gives you access to a nice flash card system, as well as mini quizzes, among other perks. The Basic subscription gives you access to the entire video and audio library as well, complete with the helpful notes that accompany each lesson.
Whenever I exercise, I usually listen to a single audio lesson three times in a row, repeating out loud every Danish word and sentence I hear. I like it that each lesson ends with a little quiz, giving you time to come up with the translation before the answer is given. Then later I read the lesson material (which includes the transcript and notes for Basic membership) and listen again to the audio.
The app is very easy to use and lets you download the lessons so you can listen even without an internet connection. Once again, I highly recommend this language learning system. It's simple, fun, as well as informative and thorough.
