JA Audiobook, the new application for Android
I'm very happy to introduce JA Audiobook after several months of work. JA Audiobook is the opportunity for me to give an answer to a problem that many people come across when learning Japanese.
Have you ever thought that you had already spent many hours learning Japanese, and still couldn't speak and communicate easily even after hundreds of hours of work? Many people only learn liists of words and all possible Kanji readings. It's really good and something necessary to improve your knowledge of the language, but it's not enough
A language is more than a mere collection of elements that you pick one at a time to create a sentence, it's above all a competence that you need to acquire by reading and speaking to communicate efficiently.
JA Audiobook is based on the popula Reading Assistant already available on Japan-Activator to optimize your time, and to help you improve your communicative skills. Thanks to JA Audiobook:
- You'll memorize syntactic patterns that become natural and automatic when you speak.
- You'll learn words in context to know how and when to use them without fear of saying something stupid...
- You'll learn how to read Kanji (Japanese characters) in words instead of learning by heart all the possible pronunciations individually.
- Your reading of Hiragana and Katakana will flow better without you noticing.
- You'll have more confidence in your level in Japanese, and you'll thus progress faster.
Within only a couple of days, JA Audiobook appeared in the Top New Apps in Google Play!
If your objective isn't to become an encyclopedia of the Japanese language, but simply to enjoy talking with your Japanese friends, watching Japanese TV programs, and reading Japanese magazines, so you should have a look at JA Audiobook.
The first comments are really encouraging with an overall rating of 5 out of 5 (comments translated from French available here):
"I salute the developer's excellent work, who keeps on improving his Japanese learning method. Ideal complementary to JA Sensei, it also allows to prepare for the JLPT N5 and above."
"Excellent application, particularly beautiful display on tablets. It allows to start with easy texts and to navigate through vocabulary, grammar and kanji drawing resources. The presence of Furigana above the kanji is a real advantage for a beginner like me. The soundtrack quality is very good. In a nutshell: an excellent complementary to JA Sensei."
"Really promising application that follows the other apps of the developer. As far as I know, there is no other of such kind of applications. The audio quality is excellent. And the texts well adapted for different levels. I'm looking forward to the next updates."
There are still many things to do in JA Sensei and on the website, many projects and ideas that I'm yearning to make come true, so I'll let you discover the new app. Your support helps me stay very motivated despite the hard moments and concessions that this work takes. So really THANK YOU!
