Family Japanese Family Japanese

Family Japanese practice Japanese with family

Family Japanese is designed to be fun for your family.

It is especially suited for Japanese language lessons for families with elementary to middle school children.

As a well-meaning family, you can work on lessons without embarrassment and without fear.

In addition, teaching to a child makes learning for parents. You can not teach unless you understand.

The app displays English and Japanese translations (Kanji and Kana and sound), and you can also hear the native speaker's pronunciation.
The pronunciation of native speakers is made easy to hear, but if you are a child you can not read Japanese, so it will be difficult to listen.
In such a case, a family who has learned Japanese can teach elementary school children how to read and pronounce. If you have studied Japanese, it is easy to read and listen.

For example, if your primary school child is difficult to hear and can not remember, you can imagine the following exchange.

The eldest daughter uses the iPod Touch with the name "Annie". The second girl is using the iPad with the name "Cindy". Daddy and mom are using the iPhone.

Annie, say "It's time to get up" to dad.

Annie sees "Today's phrase", reads a Japanese phrase, then presses the speaker button to confirm pronunciation.

← Please try to actually press this, you can hear the pronunciation.


Nice! If you remember, please click the "Done!" Button.

← Please try to actually push this. Actual voice has multiple patterns.

Annie pressed the "Done!" Button on her iPod Touch.

Cindy, say "It's time to get up" to dad.

I can't read, I can't hear!

Well, let's say it slowly, listen carefully. (Slowly) "Okiru jikan dayo."

Okiru jikan dai.

I miss you! The end is not "dai" but "dayo". Let's say it again, yeah! "Okiru jikan dayo."

Oh yes, let's say it alone.

Okiru jikan dayo.

Oh yes, it feels good. Practice a little more and if you think you've learned, press the "Done!" Button.

If mam will remember, we can try a new phrase tomorrow!
