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.

This is one of my all time favorite apps.

I want to extend and tell you how much I appreciate this app and how much gratitude I have because it. As someone who was in a foreign language congregation it helped me tremendously. I still use it today for Chinese. Lately, I have been practicing Spanish on it too. Anytime I see a new language I get so excited. This app is better than so many other language apps. The display, the ease, and comfort of how it is made is beautiful. I truly appreciate all the time,effort,energy, and hard work you all have contributed. Keep up the amazing fine work and hope to see even more languages in the future.

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.
