Today’s entry will be about Clozemaster. Clozemaster is an app for studying languages. At the moment, there are about 50+ languages for you to choose and create pairings from. For instance, the English -> Japanese combination will be a good choice for a Japanese person who wishes to study English.
The app is particularly easy to use. First, a sentence written in your first selected language will appear. After that, you will have to select the best answer out of all the possible listed choices. Regardless of whether you got the answer correctly or not, a native speaker will then read the sentence out loud for you. This way, you can improve both your vocabulary and listening skills as well.
Additionally, your progress and achievements will also be recorded into the app itself. There is also a leaderboard!
By the way, the app comes in both the free version and the premium version. For more details, please do look it up on the official Clozemaster website. To begin with, why don’t you try out the free version and see how it goes?
A few years ago, I decided to start learning kanji. At the beginning, I actually hated kanji. I mean, being forced to use such complicated characters is such a hassle I thought.
However, the more I studied kanji, the more I saw the benefits of doing so. It especially helped with improving my reading speed. Heck, having learned kanji, my current self actually thinks it is a hassle if my Japanese reading materials do NOT contain kanji lol.
I personally think that kanji characters are a lot easier to learn compared to grammar.
