I recommend to start with kana (for Japanese ABC) and vocab_jlptN5 (for common words). In addition, set range to 10 so that it will only ask 10 words at a time. However, if you want to learn Japanese grammar, I suggest buying Japanese for Busy People I Revised 3rd Edition (kana version; use my app to learn the kana first.).
Thanks. But I think that the Kana version should be or easier to understand. it is kinda overwhelming for me. Like the symbol for 'me' and in the sentence, it used 'heart' as an example. If possible, make it load a sound for how the word is pronounced.

Right. I find LPE good as well.

Yes, sometimes it gives an example sentence, which doesn't quite fit to what is asked. This is due to Lua's weak support for UTF-8 string comparison. If application cannot match with a Japanese string, it uses the English string instead. Hmm... I can still add a support for audio sentences. I did consider doing this, but thought that no one wants to create audio files. I can do a few example audio files, nevertheless.

Thank you very much for registering and reporting the issue! I actually was planning to release a new update tomorrow, but I am going to delay it because I want to solve this issue properly. However, as for now, here is a quick fix to solve your issue. Open index.lua with Notepad++ and add the middle two lines to the font list.

-- FONTS
ifont = IntraFont.load("flash0:/font/jpn0.pgf", IntraFont.STRING_UTF8);
chn = IntraFont.load("flash0:/font/gb3s1518.bwfon", IntraFont.STRING_UTF8);
IntraFont.setAltFont( ifont, chn );
ifontLtn = IntraFont.load("flash0:/font/ltn0.pgf", IntraFont.STRING_UTF8);

May I add your Chinese word lists to the next release (cantonese or mandarin?)?

Nakano:
If you want to include the lists , please be my guest, it will be an honour.
By the way, all the list I made are simplified mandarin chinese or putonhua (oficial language), the pinyin is in this format "sui3" (water) the number after the silabe is the accent, an other way of marking acccents is "shuǐ ", as I use a regular keyboard in spanish I find very dificult to put the second case of accents, but I can do it, do a PSP can show the second case of accents?

I will try the latest release, thanks for your hard work.

Thank you! Well, I would have liked to include them to this release, but maybe to the next. I think for the next release I will also add HSK level (Basic)Elementary-Advanced word lists for both simplified/traditional Chinese.

Thank's for clarifying. I don't remember seeing number format when I studied Chinese (only a little, though). About your question answer is yes, but it's not pretty. You can see the result with the included word lists. The second case accent is taken from Chinese font and what is left is from ltn0 font (Chinese font doesn't support these "normal" characters so ltn0 must be used. Ltn0 could be used for showing these second case accent characters, but then Chinese characters don't show up, unfortunately.). Due to this, I prefer that number format.

Re: AnyLanguageStudy v0.8 (by Nakano)

Post by nakano » Wed May 04, 2011 6:38 am

Hello everyone! It's been almost 3 months since I started developing this application. I hope you all have enjoyed the releases as this is probably the final for Genesis. There are still a few features I would like to implement but due to the Lua language in general and current version of Euphoria, it's not possible. Nevertheless, I think AnyLanguageStudy has evolved quite nicely and now homebrew community has an app that not-quite-similar existed before. Thank you all for your comments and feedback; much appreciated!

Changelog for V0.8:
* New Chinese vocabulary lists based on HSK profiency tests and others.
* A possibility to group word lists.
* Remembers the last word list.
* Some code rewrite.
* Fixed a freezing bug caused by a bug in Euphoria V8.
* Now search doesn't only search definition but also translation.
