Love this!

I love how they can be listened to at slow speed and native speaking speed. I greatly appreciate the show notes that break down all the translations and provide extra knowledge. Simple and yet so effective!

Very effective study tool

This application is proving to be very effective in improving and rounding out Nihongo skills. The Shadowing tool forces one to truly digest and understand the words and text. Spelling out vocabulary and providing Kanji practice worksheets is very helpful. I highly recommend this app and look forward to regular production of new lessons and hopefully listening practice drills for exam prep at higher levels. Great work Sakura Sensei!
