Limited Time Offer: Free Download with iPhone App Purchase — Japanese Dialogues

Japanese Dialogues App

Buy our new Dialogues apps and get up to three free downloads!(see below for details; offer good until September 1, 2012)

I’ve been working with Paul Stevenson from the Australian software development company Dependency on a few projects. Our first collaboration are these two apps.

Watch the video demostrating just what it can do!

And I couldn’t be more excited about it. Have you ever wanted to press pause or do an instant lookup on a word while listening to two native Japanese speakers conversing? With this app you can.

Every word is defined and explaned. Every line and every vocabulary word has a sound file–over 1,500 sound files! And even better, if you buy one or both of these apps, I’d like to give you a free download. (still see below)

Today, I woke up to discover that these two apps were even covered in an article by Japan Today.

  • Every word in every dialogue is defined with recordings by native speakers
  • Tap a single line to hear just that
  • Tap the play button to hear the dialogue read naturally, line by line
  • Turn on “pause for repetition” to practice speaking what you are hearing
  • Hide / show romaji and English translation in the Options Menu
  • Universal App for iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad
  • Retina display for iPhone and iPad also included
  • Over 1,500 sound files

I really feel like this is a great resource for students of Japanese. I wish I had something like this when I was starting out. If you are a beginner or upper beginner wanting to understand sentence structure as well as wanting to pick up essential vocabulary in daily conversation, please check these apps out.

Two Tocks Before Midnight Audiobook Review

Two Tocks before Midnight Audiobook Review

Narrator Reviews has just reviewed CJ Martin’s novella, Two Tocks Before Midnight here. Wayne Farrell did a fantastic job with the sound as the review says.

I only have only good things to say about this narrator. Farrrell’s voice is rich, deep, and clear. He gives an excellent presentation of the text parts, as well as in expressing the characters. Farrell, has a good handle on proper emphasis, so each character is easily distinguished.

Listen and Learn Japanese in your Car, at the Gym, or on your Computer ON SALE

Introducing a new line of products at TheJapanShop.com. We will be producing a number of audio only products that are designed to be useful without the need of any written material. We will, however, include a PDF of the transcript and more detailed grammatical explanations.

Both of these products have been around for a while, but I’m excited to announce we are now including MP3s that can be burned to a CD or added to a playlist. These specially prepared audio files (weeks worth of dedicated work!) were designed so the listener wouldn’t need to be viewing a PDF or Kindle ebook to learn. This is especially good for commuters, joggers, or just something to listen to as you go to bed at night.

 

But we are still including the PDF, Kindle ebook, and Nook ebook files too! And Get all these for half price. (until Sunday)

Just for perspective, we are selling The Meetings and Greetings product on Amazon MP3 for $8.99 and that does not include the PDFs or ebook formats–if you bought it through Amazon, however, contact me for the other stuff!

* NOTE: If you bought either of these products at any time in the past for more than .99, email clay for a free download. Past free promotions do not apply–sorry, but we have put A LOT of effort into this!

Learn Japanese through Dialogues At the Restaurant Kindle eBook

Brand New! Learn Japanese through Dialogues: at the Restaurant ebook.

We produced an iPhone app last year on Japanese Dialogues. It was a HUGE undertaking, but as a result, I have tons of data to work with. I’m slowly organizing the hundreds of sound files and XML spreadsheets so that the information can be repackaged for ebooks and as audiobooks.

We finished the ebook of the “At the Restaurant” topic a few weeks ago and it is finally up on Amazon. The audiobook is far more challenging (imagine converting an ebook explaining Japanese conversation, grammar, and vocabulary into an audio-only format). But I hope to have that finished next week.

While we are using the same basic information across platforms, each product has been created with that platform in mind.

All formats include audio files (the ebooks have a link to the download on the last page)

iPhone: Japanese Dialogues (FREE download, then buy the At the Restaurant as an in-app purchase)

Amazon Kindle: Learn Japanese through Dialogues: at the Restaurant $4.99

B&N Nook: Learn Japanese through Dialogues: at the Restaurant $4.99

TheJapanShop.com: Learn Japanese through Dialogues: at the Restaurant $4.99

Audiobook (on iTunes & Amazon MP3) Coming soon!

CJ Martin’s Two Tocks Before Midnight Audiobook Coming

We (really meaning, I–Clay) are thrilled to announce the coming audiobook version of CJ Martin’s Two Tocks before Midnight novella. It is a Sherlock Holmes-esque story that takes the reader back to 19th century Boston.

There is a murder. All members of the Agora Society is at risk; all members are suspect. Only one man, Carl Brooke, has the knowledge and expertise to stop the murderer…

Wayne Farrell will do the narration. He has a marvelous voice and is just perfect for the story. I can’t wait to post excerpts!

Here is the coming audiobook cover:

If you haven’t read it, I don’t think you will be disappointed–check it out on Amazon here or for your Nook here.
