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.
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.
My workhorse application for learning Japanese. There are a million different apps for learning Japanese on the net. Only a few are truly useful, and none are as useful as this one. This one has it all, and is actively and continuously upgraded by its creator. One of the very few apps that I actually pay money for. The quiz features are especially good, learning kana and kanji are excellent, and the grammar lessons are ideal for when you have a few minutes to spare and nothing else to do.
Easy access Synchronising between mobile, tablet and website is a plus in this comprehensive app. I have two 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. Else I would rank 5 stars (would rank 4.5 stars if it was possible).
Wonderful App I have tried out a few apps to help with my Japanese classes in school and this is the only one that has worked so successfully. I use the kana quiz and practice to help memorize the strokes of the kana both with my finger and a stylus. In 1 month of practicing for about 5 minutes a day I was able to completely memorize all the hiragana and katakana that is within the app. I was using physical flash cards for my in class vocabulary, but that too is covered by this app and is helping immensely.
Kudos to the developer for always keeping this the best Jap app! Premium user here. 😀 Love everything! Especially the writing exercises, audio samples and ability to record and compare your pronunciation with the one in the module. This started as a hobby and I'm seriously wanting to learn the language now because of the app.
- 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
