App Description

Universal App for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad

Learn vocabulary naturally and in context. Break down complex Japanese sentences into easy to understand parts.

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 vocabulary.

Each line adds a single word until the sentence is completed. This way, you can see how Japanese sentences are constructed from the ground up. Tap any line to hear it spoken. Press the information icon to get a list of vocabulary words, grammar explanations, and any cultural notes. Tap "View Vocabulary" to get a full list of all the vocabulary found in that particular sentence lesson. Tap the play button to hear each line read in order with or without space for repetition.

▸ Every word in every sentence is defined and has sound.
▸ All sounds are recorded by native voice actors and actresses (over 1,200 sound files!)
▸ Tap a single line to hear just that line.
▸ Tap the play button at the top to hear the sentence build line by line automatically.
▸ Turn on pause for repetition to practice speaking what you are hearing.
▸ Hide/show romaji and English translations in the Options Menu.
▸ Enhanced for iPhone 4/s Retina AND iPad 3 Retina (looks great on other devices too!)

Nearly every line from every sentence 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 1,200 sound files for all the sentences!
