5 star app Japanese "Great for students! I teach at a bilingual school and it’s challenging to keep the students' attention. Apps are the best way to go and this offline app is one of my favorites."

This app has lessons that are immediately useful for talking to real people in real situations like checking in to a youth hostel, taking the train or making friends."
