“I have no Japanese experience, so I was curious what would happen if I gave it a shot. I was immediately hooked and found myself learning the basics without even knowing it.”
“I’ve been studying Japanese for 2 years and this is the first time I’ve come across a program I can’t wait to use everyday.”
* THE SCIENCE BEHIND MINDSNACKS *
At MindSnacks we like to keep it fun, but we’re serious about learning. That’s why our Japanese app includes 8 challenging games designed by education experts. Each game teaches a specific skill and helps create a well-rounded learning experience for both kids and adults that goes well beyond basic flashcards.
Of course studying is only worth it if it works, so our unique algorithm reinforces the learning process using proven methods from the field of memory studies. Over time, the games adapt to your individual performance, selectively repeating Japanese words, phrases and grammatical points with which you’ve previously struggled. In other words, as you learn Japanese, the app learns about you for a more effective learning experience.
Whether you’re traveling to Japan for pleasure or learning Japanese for business, MindSnacks will help with your grammar and vocab so you can become less reliant on a dictionary or translator. Great for beginning and intermediate learners of Japanese, MindSnacks is like a helpful Japanese teacher that goes where you go and teaches on your terms.
