Learn Japanese App for Windows 8

We are pleased to announce our Windows 8 app, Learn Japanese, has reached over a 1000 downloads!


Here is the latest review: (five stars!)

By Mike:

Great product!

I am *very* pleased with this product. Grammar/kana lessons are reasonably good compared to popular textbooks. The advantage of this app is that it gives you immediate access to natural *native* speech (you can simply click on any Japanese sentence to hear it pronounced by a Japanese), an option that is often missing in textbooks *(if they come with CDS, finding relevant sentences is often impractical). I highly recommend this app, in addition to the JLPT apps by the same publisher.

Worth every $

Thank you Mike–I’m glad it is helpful.

If you have Windows 8 on your PC, download it today–there is a free version that is fully functional, but has (unobtrusive) ads and limited content. Click here.
