Gus on the Go: Japanese for kids, iOS & Android language app
Gus on the Go: Japanese offers a comprehensive way of learning nearly 90 vocabulary words through interactive lessons and fun vocabulary games unlocked by completing engaging lesson reviews. Now available on the App Store!

* Developer’s Notes: We strictly used hiragana and katakana in our Japanese language app to reflect how young kids first learn written vocabulary in Japan. Kanji education follows later. Also, in the app, we used the following for the numbers lesson (ichi, ni, san, yon, go, roku, nana, hachi, kyu, juu). Since the app does not teach context to describe when to use shi versus yon for the number 4 and nana versus shichi for the number 7, we used the aforementioned sequence that is used to count items. We do however provide both variations along with the English pronunciation in our supplemental Japanese flashcards.

Love it!!! My 5 year old is addicted to it. Learning heaps of new words and they are sticking too, thanks to the frequent but fun testing/games. If you want your child to make a start on Japanese this is the place to start! Well worth the price.
