App Descriptionâ˜…BEGINNERS OF JAPANESE CAN LISTEN AND UNDERSTANDâ˜…
Universal App for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad
What is the BIGGEST challenge for those learning Japanese but living outside Japan? LISTENING COMPREHENSION.
This app uses the mobility and power of the iPhone and iPad to enable beginners and upper beginners of Japanese to improve listening, reading, and their vocabulary.
Japanese Conversation through Dialogues for Beginners comes with five categories--each with 7 to 17 real-world dialogues. All dialogues are designed for beginners of Japanese and are recorded by native Japanese speakers (male and female).
â–¸ Every word in every dialogue is defined and has sound
â–¸ All sounds are recorded by native voice actors and actresses (over 1,500 sound files!)
â–¸ Tap a single line to hear just that line.
â–¸ Tap the play button at the top of the dialogue to hear the dialogue read naturally line by line.
â–¸ Turn on pause for repetition to practice speaking what you are hearing
â–¸ Hide/show romaji and English translations in the Options Menu
â–¸ Enhanced for iPhone 4/s Retina AND iPad 3 Retina (looks great on other devices too!)
Nearly every line from every dialogue is packed with cultural notes and hints for correct usage. Just tap the information icon for notes to pop up along with every word from that line defined. Just tap any word to hear it spoken. We want this to be a seriously useful tool for learning Japanese! In all, we have recorded over 1,500 sound files for all the dialogue packs!
