Clozemasterで言語の勉強 (Language studies with Clozemaster)


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.

This question is a bit easy though..


Additionally, your progress and achievements will also be recorded into the app itself. There is also a leaderboard!

I said it was easy earlier, but truth is, this is about the extent of my true ability lol


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?

ぎゃくに日本人にはこの設定のほうがいい。(英語 → 日本語)
Conversely, this setting is probably better if you are Japanese and would like to learn English instead. (English →  Japanese)

WaniKaniで漢字を学ぶ (Learn Kanji with WaniKani)


だけど、漢字を学べば学ぶほど利益はもっと見えたよ。特に、読書速度はどんど ん 早くなった。逆に今の私には記事とか本は漢字がないなら、面倒になる。草


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.

Cute isn’t it?



On that note, I used WaniKani to study kanji. For an English-speaking person, WaniKani is an extremely convenient website.

To begin with, WaniKani teaches you kanji via the use of mnemonics. By doing so, kanji learning becomes way more engaging and fun. Let’s study kanji!

Came across this example while I was learning one of the kanji characters lol.
