I tried many apps but this one is the only one that stood out I tried Rosetta Stone I tried Duolingo and memorize and draw but this one has all aspects of the language you wanna learn.
Though it has some restrictions (in app purchases) it’s so much better than duolingo, with Japanese at least. it introduces stuff at the right place and helps me to memorize it. native speakers can grade your work and you can grade others. if say any purchase made with them would be worth it to be honest:) my only complaint is of you don’t purchase a plan, there are a few tests you can’t take as well as some of the review games, but overall it’s a successful app in my opinion.
Great app for language learning. I am working on Spanish and am finding this very helpful. I like the lesson structure, the app design and gamification of language learning, and the lessons themselves. If they supported the live tutoring in the app and proofread some of the course materials better, I’d give them 5 stars. But overall, it’s very good for language learning and I like it better than some other apps I’ve tried.
I am 70 years young I have always loved Japan ever since I was knee high to a grasshopper. I had a penpal from Katsu Shika-Ku Tokyo. Her name was 中村知加子様. She would write her letters in 70% Japanese once she found out that I could read most of the Hiragana and Katakana systems. Although my Japanese vocabulary was very limited. We started writing since March of 1971 until 1977, when she got married. I learned most of the Hiragana and Katakana systems and a few Kanji from Japanese exchange students. I wish we had home computers and this course back then. I had to struggle using Japanese/English and English/Japanese dictionaries and the help of Japanese exchange students. I also loved Japanese popular music. That also helped with pronunciation and memorization. You should blend Japanese songs with your lessons and corresponding native songs with other languages that relate to the lessons if possible by translating them. Like they teach children in school. It makes memorization faster and more pleasant by activating the pleasure area of the brain, not to mention linking up with long term memory. I have short term memory problems and ACC. This would help solve that problem. Have you noticed that whenever someone sings a foreign song and does it well that the accent, pronunciation, and timing are all perfect?! Then when they go back to speaking English their native accent returns! I learned mine mostly from the songs and movies of Yuzo Kayama 加山雄三. One more improvement could be made, if I am not missing something, and that is in your section where you have other students correct your lessons. I understand the purpose of total immersion but when they respond using Kanji without translation into Hiragana, then I can’t understand what they are correcting. They need to at least translate their Kanji into Hiragana like my pen-pal did. Then practice their English as well. Without it I am lost. Please help. tora4850
So far I’m really liking this app. I like that the lessons are short and simple. I like that you can be corrected and also help others by correcting them. Great tips are offered to better explain lessons.
Very interesting learning experience
I love this App it really helps me.
I am the worst at languages, and my family makes fun of me when I try. So far, I’m actually learning a few words in Japanese with ease! Busuu teaches you visually, verbally, through speaking, hearing. They’ve covered all the learning methods!
It really helps you out learning Spanish and going in depth of what certain words mean but I wish it could tell you what all the words in a sentence means. Sometimes I have to go on a translator to translate some words. Also, a lot of lessons have to be unlocked by buying Premium.
I love it it’s free and it is amazing but it’s not free for quizzes but it still is super amazing
