Japanese4000 Free

Japanese4000 continues where Japanese2000 left off with additionally 2000 words, but now a little more difficult!

Japanese4000Free contains 250 words from the first chapter.

Learn Japanese by studying words included in contemporary sentences. Japanese4000 Free contains 250 common Japanese words and for each, kanji (when applicable), hiragana, romanji, english are included. The sentences are carefully constructed just for this application and focus primarily on the grammar found in JLPT levels N4 up to N2.

Most applications containing sentences take them from the public available Japanese projects. These are however rather complex and difficult to grasp for beginner and intermediates.

Japanese4000 wants to overcome this and its sentences are created to be easy enough to be learned with moderate effort, but at the same time useful as they can be applied in normal conversation. Focus is on every day speech pattern, as a modern japanese between 20 and 30 years old would have said it. No stiff text book style.

Students of all levels will benefit from the application. Beginners can start of with the romanji support before having learnt hiragana and katakana. More advanced students can enable kanji focus and study using hiragana / kanji relation. Default study option is to use english / hiragana relation.

Note that japanese grammar style often omit the subject of the sentence. Due to that we have used a mix of inserting (I) and just used the basic verb form of the sentence. It might look strange to someone used to text book japanese, but this is the real thing!

The first level from the full app is included, starting out from where Japanese2000 left off. One level would normally take one month to pass unless you put in a lot of time and is dedicated.

The application uses interval study to effectively reinforce words and sentences. This will lead to focus on new words and words that you repeatedly fails to remember. Other words will reappear over time, more seldom if you know the words.

Nail That Note

This application helps you to test and review your ability to hear notes and recognize intervals, scales, chords and arpeggios. Using high quality samples of clean electric guitar and piano, this will for a fraction of the cost of traditional ear training courses, give you the tool you need to study on the go, when having a few minutes over or not being able to sit down with your normal instrument.

You don’t need to be born with perfect pitch to hear music notes. Learning to hear notes and recognize the names of those notes takes time and practice. It may be that you never develop perfect pitch, which is the ability to hear a note and name it, but you can develop relative pitch: the ability to recognize musical intervals, match tones so you can play songs by ear and recognize notes within the context of a scale or song.

Remember, nothing can really replace a real instrument when it comes to practice and review absolute pitch, but this will help you on the way. Melodic, interval, relative, harmonic can be tested and trained without any access to your instrument.

Make sure that you download and try the Lite version before buying the full version so that you are sure that it runs fine on your device.

The free/lite version contains the following content, all in several variations.
* 7 notes
* 7 intervals
* 8 chords/arpeggios

JLPT Study FREE, Kanji and Vocabulary Japanese Proficiency Level N5

This if the FREE version of JLPT Study, Level 1-5 Japanese Language Proficiency, containing all of level N5 Kanji (103) and all the roughly 714 words in the level N5 list.

This application will help you study the vocabulary for the Japanese Language Proficiency Tests (JLPT).

The JLPT (日本語能力試験 nihongo nōryoku shiken) is a standardized test for evaluating the Japanese language proficiency for non-japanese.

The study mode is based on interval as this will effectively reinforce your long term memory of the words.

The interval study will increase the time until next study for a word for each time the word is marked as known. If a word is not known, its score will be reduced and you will have to study it more often until its score has been restored. This makes you focus on words not yet memorized.

As each level contains quite a lot of words, the study set (number of words) can be limited. From the selected set, only the words valid for study (according to the chosen study mode) can be studied. Add more words if the number of due words is zero but you still want to move on.

Each time you start a new study, the selected words will be randomized. After the study session is over, you will see how many words you knew and also where you are in your goal to complete the level.

* Interval study
* Full set of compounds for each kanji
* Set study order to English, Japanese or random
* Customize study speed
* Include Kanji in Vocab when possible
* Include Romaji in Vocab when possible
* Focus study on Kanji / Hiragana connection in Vocab
* Quick review (scroll list)

If you do not yet know furigana (hiragana and katakana), make sure to learn it. Very important for studying Japanese. However, until you have mastered furigana there is an option to display romanji spelling.

Remember, even if your goal is not to pass the JLPT, you still can learn tons of new Japanese words to use in your everyday life.

Have fun and keep studying.

JLPT Study, 1-5 Level Kanji and Vocabulary Japanese Language Proficiency

This application will help you study the vocabulary for the Japanese Language Proficiency Tests (JLPT), level N5, N4, N3, N2 and N1 (N5 being the easiest and N1 the hardest). The split of old N2 into N3 (and new N2 set) is not officially defined and thus up to interpretation.

It also includes the KANJI for level N1 to N5. Note that N3 is subject to interpretation and N3 presented here is an estimation. N2 also contains the N3 subset.

This means that it covers roughly 8 500 words and 2000 kanji. Great care has been taken to reduce the repetition of words in the more advanced levels if they occur in the previous levels.

For each kanij level common kanji compunds are listed to help understand the meaning of the kanij. A kanji is mostly used in combination with other kanjis to make up words. This is something that often is overlooked but is very important to study.

The JLPT (日本語能力試験 nihongo nōryoku shiken) is a standardized test for evaluating the Japanese language proficiency for non-japanese.

The word lists have been screened and corrected by a native Japanese, 作道敦子, with over 2500 corrections and 2000 added level 1 compounds.

The study mode is based on interval as this will effectively reinforce your long term memory of the words.

The interval study will increase the time until next study for a word for each time the word is marked as known. If a word is not known, its score will be reduced and you will have to study it more often until its score has been restored. This makes you focus on words not yet memorized.

As each level contains quite a lot of words, the study set (number of words) can be limited. From the selected set, only the words valid for study (according to the chosen study mode) can be studied. Add more words if the number of due words is zero but you still want to move on.

Each time you start a new study, the selected words will be randomized. After the study session is over, you will see how many words you knew and also where you are in your goal to complete the level.

If you know the word by heart, then mark it as “known” and it will not be tested.

I feel it is very beneficial to see the kanji parts as well as this not only will help you distinguish words with same furigana spelling, but also teach you kanji “for free”. It does not hurt to keep it on.

If you do not yet know furigana (hiragana and katakana), make sure to learn it. Very important for studying Japanese. However, until you have mastered furigana there is an option to display romanji spelling.

Remember, even if your goal is not to pass the JLPT, you still can learn tons of new Japanese words to use in your everyday life.

Have fun and keep studying.
