Limited Time Offer: Free Download with iPhone App Purchase — Japanese Dialogues

Japanese Dialogues App

Buy our new Dialogues apps and get up to three free downloads!(see below for details; offer good until September 1, 2012)

I’ve been working with Paul Stevenson from the Australian software development company Dependency on a few projects. Our first collaboration are these two apps.

Watch the video demostrating just what it can do!

And I couldn’t be more excited about it. Have you ever wanted to press pause or do an instant lookup on a word while listening to two native Japanese speakers conversing? With this app you can.

Every word is defined and explaned. Every line and every vocabulary word has a sound file–over 1,500 sound files! And even better, if you buy one or both of these apps, I’d like to give you a free download. (still see below)

Today, I woke up to discover that these two apps were even covered in an article by Japan Today.

  • Every word in every dialogue is defined with recordings by native speakers
  • Tap a single line to hear just that
  • Tap the play button to hear the dialogue read naturally, line by line
  • Turn on “pause for repetition” to practice speaking what you are hearing
  • Hide / show romaji and English translation in the Options Menu
  • Universal App for iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad
  • Retina display for iPhone and iPad also included
  • Over 1,500 sound files

I really feel like this is a great resource for students of Japanese. I wish I had something like this when I was starting out. If you are a beginner or upper beginner wanting to understand sentence structure as well as wanting to pick up essential vocabulary in daily conversation, please check these apps out.

Android Apps for Learning Japanese Coming Soon

We have two new apps coming for Android hopefully within a week.

One is actually an update of our Japanese Phrases app for Android, but it is totally redone and much, much bigger.

Japanese Dialogues for Android:

This was one of our most ambitious projects in recent years. But I haven’t done much with it since we launched it for iPhone over a year ago. I’m pleased to announce that not only will we be coming out with an Android version very soon, but we should also have a major update for the iPhone / iPad. More on this later…

Japanese Phrases for Android:

Thousands of sound files and hundreds of lessons. Coming soon!

If you have an Android and are interested in these apps, please let me know and I’ll email you the instant they are available.

The heart of the app is the “My Dialogs” section.

Tapping Dialogues will pull up the below:

This main Dialogue page shows all your installed Dialogue Packs. A Dialogue Pack is a group of dialogues in a theme such as at a restaurant, with a friend, or on a date.

Tapping  brings up the Options menu:

Here you can:

  1. Set the font size
  2. Toggle Romaji

Finally, a fun and easy way to learn REAL conversational Japanese.

We have been involved with helping people learn (and teach) Japanese for over ten years now through our TheJapanesePage.com (free) website and TheJapanShop.com webstore. We have learned the best way to learn vocabulary–by far–is in context. This app has been designed from the ground up with this in mind.

Japanese Dialogues (or Dialogs) and Conversation comes with four beginning level dialogues recorded by native Japanese speakers (male and female) absolutely FREE! Download the app now for no charge to see how amazingly useful this can be.

Also, every word in every dialogue is defined and has its own sound files recorded by native voice actors and actresses. Tap a single line to hear just that line. Tap the play button at the top of the dialogue to hear the dialogue read naturally line by line. Set it up so it pauses for repetition after each line. The settings menu also allows you to hide/show romaji and English translations.

Nearly every line from every dialogue is packed with cultural notes and hints for correct usage. Just tap the information icon for notes to popup along with every word from that line defined. Just tap any word to hear it spoken. We want this to be a seriously useful tool for learning Japanese! In all, we have recorded over 3,000 sound files for all the dialogue packs! The free dialogues alone have almost 200 sound files!

Additional dialogues are available for in-app purchase on topics such as: traveling, at the airport, with friends, out on a date, business phone, and much more. We have tried to offer a lot for a little (most dialogue packs are only .99 and have at least 7 full dialogues and hundreds of sound files). Try out the free dialogues to see if it will help you with your Japanese!
