Going much deeper than the canned phrases and vocab of other products, it approaches the language in an integrated way, with discussion, recordings, animations, illustrations, photos, reviews, and more. The core promise of Human Japanese is to show you how everything works and never to expect you to magically know things that we haven’t yet taught you. This makes your journey into Japanese a joy, as each new piece that falls into place makes sense and every new example sentence is comprehensible. Key concepts are explained with warmth and humor, drawing you into the nuts-and-bolts that you need to understand Japanese while keeping things down-to-earth and engaging. Our goal is to lead you from one “light bulb moment” to the next so that you stay energized and excited about the language. Human Japanese contains: * More than 500 pages of interactive content * Animations of every hiragana and katakana character * Over 1800 recordings of vocabulary words and phrases spoken by native speakers * More than 800 example sentences * Ingredients(TM) example sentence breakdowns on every example sentence for total clarity * Interactive games and review quizzes that keep track of your response history to help focus on trouble spots * Dozens of photos and cultural notes to connect your Japanese to real life * And much more!

  • Very useful

    By blabla22234
    I really love using this app and find it extremely helpful. I’ve been taking Japanese classes for two years and find this app just as helpful. It’s like a self-guided course in Japanese culture and language. Highly recommended.
  • Love It

    By Peepeeeeeeeeeee
    Lessons are fun and comprehensive. Most fun I've had learning Japanese so far as well as being the most successful. Definitely suggest it. I bought the bundle outright lol.
  • Good app

    By Jim Awofadeju
    So far so good! I have finished the first 2 chapters and I am on chapter 3. This isn’t the first app that I have used to learn Japanese. I like how in the description this app was called your personal sensei in a box. It’s like an all-in-one Japanese app that has everything you need.
  • Best app dedicated to Japanese

    By Rhxurvsj
    Not like the other apps that have multiple languages that you can choose to learn from this one is solely dedicated to teaching Japanese and does so greatly. It is at least one of my top two learning apps and the other being Memrise. I would not hesitate to buy this app again if I did not already know about it.
  • Great for starting out

    By Jfilios
    I’m just starting out in Japanese and this has been a great tool so far. Really helps to present the foundations of Japanese so you can learn them easily. I also love that they integrate cultural lessons along with the language lessons. Helps to break up the monotony and put things in context.
  • Best language learning app out there. Totally worth getting

    By Kingyidzg
    Wow! This is THE best app I have ever used; I loved the way the author mixed some comedy in the text to make it more fun... Also the way he explained things made everything SO MUCH easier, he shows you how simple it really is to learn Japanese. Another thing that makes this app better than other language learning apps, is the cultural notes, they give you a good idea about what it’s like to visit, work or live in Japan. I also like the cultural notes because they give you a break after a long grammar lesson and you always get some really nice photos. The only bad thing about this app is that the author sometimes didn’t know how to prioritize the vocabulary, for example: he teaches you the word for "green grape" before the word for "mom" or "school". Ok, now to those who are wondering wether to get this app or not, I have one thing to say: GET IT NOW it’s totally worth it. And finally to those who made this app: Well done snd THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!どうもありがとごさいました!!!!
  • Fun, Never Frustrating

    By dGoph
    The app does a great job of teaching you exactly what you need to know when you need to know it. It provides ample opportunity to practice with lots of spoken pronunciations of the characters. I've been taking it slow (deliberately) but find the information on how to write, pronounce and recognize the different characters consistently useful time and time again. Highly recommended.
  • Perfectly structured into bite-sized chapters

    By Ann_Ominous
    I grew up with several foreign exchange students from Japan. I took Japanese all four years of High School. My university didn't offer Japanese, so I dropped it and haven't practiced it for nearly 17 years. Still, I love the culture and the food and the people and it has been a dream of mine to visit Japan. With a first time visit to Japan in my near future, this app has been perfect for getting back on board remembering the things long forgotten and recalling proper sentence structure. At chapter 31 I am recognizing that I need to supplement this with more listening to speech and speaking, but this is my basis for truly understanding what I am drilling in other practice apps.
  • 👍🏻👍🏻

    Really straightforward and easy to learn
  • Excellent for beginners and reviewing!

    By Ryukokei
    As someone that learned and forgot, this is an excellent app! Learn all new things, even if your just using this for review. The extra information about Japan, the language, and all of that fun stuff makes it fresh and new, even if you know your hiragana and katakana.
