For many people, especially those who are working, the time spent studying Japanese is not much. Therefore, learning Japanese through smartphone application becomes necessary. Today I will introduce to you a very good Japanese learning app called Lingodeer, which is quite useful and has many interesting features for those who are just beginning to learn.
For beginners to learn Japanese. In fact, you can learn both Chinese and Korean through Lingodeer, but we will focus on studying Japanese. With Lingodeer, you can complete the elementary level of Japanese. Lingodeer is like a combination of Duolingo and Memrise. Duolingo’s strength is in teaching grammar through Memrise-themed lessons, focusing more on teaching vocabulary, through a variety of integrated exercises.
In Lingodeer, lessons are designed for each type of vocabulary topic, starting from the most popular topics such as nationality, right / wrong speech, occupation, and gradual diversity in subsequent articles. For each of these topics, you will get the corresponding lessons.
After each appropriate number of lessons, you will have to pass a “pass” test to continue. This is also very convenient for those who have learned a little Japanese before when they want to skip the first lesson, they can always do this “test” to unlock the next lesson.
The first thing to say is that the image and sound of Lingodeer are very carefully invested. All voices within the app, from vocabulary to sentences and videos are pronounced by native speakers so learners will be able to learn standard Japanese pronunciation. In terms of images, the app is also designed in bright colors, with the mascot that the deer will always laugh, or cry with you.
The second strength of Lingodeer is a very complete explanation. At the beginning of each lesson there will always be a section similar to grammar explanations (study tips) and for me this is quite an important part. If you learn through the app Duolingo version on smartphones, you can see a very important part has been combated compared to the web version, that is the Tips and Notes section. With a thorough and complete grammar explanation, this is a huge plus for Lingodeer.
