Forget learning how to ask directions to the nearest municipal swimming pool!!
Were here to help you learn all the most common used Japanese words in ONE week.

As kids we were memorizing hundreds of words without effort.It worked due to strong associative memory and connection between words and sensation.

We believe that a language is an audio-visual dynamic environment of images.

We design this app with help of a linguist to help beginners make their learning more efficient and more effective.

Notable features:
* Flash cards associated with audio in BOTH Japanese and English by native speakers.
(To memorize foreign words relying not on translation, but on object.)

Pros and cons of Learn Japanese™ app for iPhone and iPad

Learn Japanese™ app good for

This app is really good!! Amazing!! It helps a lot!! There are so many words about almost everything!!
Great for gaining a real solid foundation of vocabulary with useful method games to help memorize
Wow this is a great app Ive learned a lot from it and Im starting to talk little by little words fast
I already speak Japanese, but this app has been a great refresher.
Different categories. But it pops out automatically, irritating.
Best app Ive ever used to learn Japanese!!! So many options for learning a specific topic, like colours!!! I was looking for other apps to use for learning Japanese and this is the first one I found that actually helps! Its also pretty fun ^-^ LOVE IT!!!!

Some bad moments

This app looks like it has a lot of great features -- but many words are in kanji only, with no furigana. So Im going to have to delete it. Hope the developer changes this in the future.
As a beginner I really need almost a childs version to start with. As a compliment Ill say that this appears to start you off that way. Looking forward to digging in. UPDATE: Having used this for a few days Id say this is the BEST language app/teaching product on the market. I own Rosetta Stone and Pimsleur so take that as my comparison. Ive increased my vocabulary by 20 words in a few days and it sticks.
This app so cool And it makes you so smart about Japan And i can Count to to 9!!!!!! Ichi ni san yon go roku nana hachi ku ū rei thanks for this awesome app i would like to Get another bye
By far the easiest Japanese app Ive used out of the many Ive tried out. I love the interactive games and quizzes.
I actually like this it helps me learn japanese even tho i know it alittle.
I like this app how it allows you to repeat it as much as you want and it has all these Japanese words that are really useful. So this app is amazing one of the best languge apps! ^o^
