Ratings and Reviews
I only have The second edition of the Genki textbooks and workbooks despite this resource being advertised in the back of the Third Edition. I got this wondering if they would have the audio for the Second Editions and was thrilled to see that they did! Not only that but they have the audio for numerous textbooks and workbooks that go up to N1 level! My family is having difficulty with computers at the moment so it was hard to just use the CDs whenever I felt like it. This application completely solved this problem! I am surprised that the only time I heard about it was for a brief second during a video reviewing the Third Edition of Genki One. I recommend anyone studying with Genki to use this great resource and even those who are not currently using Genki should definitively check to see if their study books are listed! To top it all off, it is completely free!
Perfect! Audio for Genki 2nd edition
It’s so convenient that The Japan Times has provided this app to students to download the audio for the Genki textbook and workbook. My laptop does not have a CD rom, so thankfully they have made this app, makes perfect sense. The player is well designed, allowing me to speed up or slow down the audio, and repeat audio by section. I have bought the Flashcards app that accompanies the Genki books, also produced by the same company. Overall, the company is doing a nice job of supporting its students. Thank you to The Japan Times and their developers.
It works and it’s free
I’m currently about halfway through the Genki Vol. 1 textbook (self-study) and so far I don’t have any real complaints about this app. I mean, it’s free and it works well enough. What more could you ask for?
