When it comes to learning a new language, there's a lot to remember. The key to remembering anything is to connect it to something you already know. By organizing what you want to learn by topic, you make it easier to see the similarities and differences in the words you are learning.

This particular app deals with words related to people.


Every Japanese syllable (except n) ends up rhyming with: a, i, u, e, o where:

"a" sounds like father

"i" sounds like machine

"u" sounds like Jupiter

"e" sounds like pen

"o" sounds like hope

To double the duration of a vowel sound, double the vowel

"a" becomes "aa"

"i" becomes "ii"

"u" becomes "uu"

"e" becomes "ei" (instead of "ee")

"o" becomes "ou" (instead of "oo")

When consonants are doubled say everything up to, but not including, the first consonant, pause for a syllable, then say the final consonant.

"i" and "u" are often so soft as to be dropped, for example: "shita" sounds more like "shta" and "desu" sounds more like "des".

"f" should sound unfinished, inasmuch as Japanese barely touch their top teeth to their lower lips when pronuncing "f".

"g" is always hard like "gate", not soft like "George".

"l" sounds more like "R".

"r" sounds more like "L".

(Both "l" and "r" touch the roof of the mouth with the tip of your tongue like the "dd's" in "ladder.)

"tsu" is like "eat soup" spoken in one syllable.

"y" is always a consonant like "you" never a vowel.
