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! Human Japanese will impress you with its warmth, beauty, and wit. Download it today and start your journey!



  • Perfection.

    First off, I never write reviews. I think, in the years I’ve used both Android and Apple phones, I’ve written MAYBE two reviews. That said, Human Japanese deserves a review. I’ll keep it short: Interested in learning Japanese? Get the app. Try out the free version; you won’t be disappointed. I bought the HJ and HJ Intermediate bundle and it was the best money I’ve spent on the App Store, bar none. If you’re looking for a gentle, intuitive way to break into the seemingly-daunting task of learning Japanese, this is the way I’d recommend you do so. There are many ways to do it, sure, but so very few of them are written in such a friendly and thoroughly-understandable manner. HJ doesn’t overload you with technical grammar terms like many textbooks do. Each term comes with both English and Japanese examples of common, everyday use to help you understand what you’re reading. It’s spectacular. As of this writing, I’m moving onto Intermediate and truly looking forward to the experience. If you’re on the fence about buying HJ, I’d urge you to do so. It’s very much worth investing in.
  • Amazing

    By Pie12345688910
    It is a really great app for learning Japanese, it teaches you the kana, the correct pronunciation of the words, the use of the words, and also more direct translations so you don't look stupid when you actually have the chance to speak with a native speaker. It's also fun on top of everything else.
  • Fantastic app with a little improvement needed

    By 小杨同学o_O
    Human Japanese is by far the best Japanese learning material I have ever owned. I bought both the iPad and iPhone version. It would be really nice if it can sync the progress across devices/platforms.
  • Studying for my first trip to Japan.

    Self teaching myself. This app has been a huge help.
  • I love this app!

    By Piggyxyz
    I always struggled with ツ,シ,ソ and ン! Until this app clearly gave a good description about the difference!😆😆😆
  • 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.
