Easy access Synchronising between mobile, tablet and website is a plus in this comprehensive app. I have three comments. (1) How to best make use of the internet website and Android app simultaneously as they are set-up differently? Suggested learning strategies for new users would be helpful. (2) I wish more Romaji (in addition to Kana and Kanji) would be included in the later lessons to satisfy the various needs of the learners. (3) A couple of typos and French words should not be in the English version.
Powerful When I decided to learn Japanese, this was by chance the first app I downloaded. It seemed great but I wanted to make sure I was using the best tool so I continued to search while starting to learn with JA Sensei. After trying probably every app and online resource available, I haven't found anything that stands up to it. The amount of time and care that was put into creating this program is evident by the comprehensive structure and detail in the lessons. It's full of useful tools that should make it easy for any learning style to work with, and navigating it all is very straightforward as it has a logically organized interface. Thanks for making my life easier, devs.
Turning Japanese, I really think so... This app os amazing. The lessons are thorough and easy to understand. It makes me feel that the creators of the lesson are passionate educators. The different categories that you can learn are detailed with visuals, audio, etc. I love how i can write in hiragana and katagana. Up next for me is kanji, I am not afraid to learn it with my Ja Sensei by my side. They even pay attention to user feedback and improve their app constantly. I'm in love with Japanese culture/language and this app is all i need.
I love it a lot. I learn not only the language but the culture as well. It is very educational.I really recommend it for those who want to learn japanese. The audios,exercises helped me very much. One problem I have is that I can't seem to buy the premium version. I need help
Easy and at your pace I'm really short of time to study Japanese so this app allows me to study a small amount at a time in nice bitesize chunks. The layout is easy to navigate so I'm able to get back to where I was without a problem. The explanations in the lessons are easy to follow so I don't feel too bogged down. I often use this on the train to work. There are various quizzes on everything from vocab to hiragana recognition. Unlike other apps it'd really easy to find the vocab you want or need at the time so I love it.
Needs fixing Want to buy this, but will not as I expect paid apps to be flawless. No breadcrumb trail, back arrow always takes you to the home screen, then you need to navigate back to where you wanted to be. Cannot create a profile. No entry symbols displayed with no explanation of why the entry fields are incorrect.
- Kanji: a few characters wouldn't be drawn properly FIXED
- Kanji: auto-resize long text during a quiz to improve visibility
- Kanji: added an option to show/hide On and Kun readings during a quiz
- Kana/Kanji/Vocabulary: added an option to show/hide personal comments during a quiz
