You need to master about 2000 writing characters to read a newspaper written in Japanese or Chinese. For native speakers of these languages, it takes nine years of daily practice to gain literacy. Most non native learners never learn how to read and write at a meaningful level. Neither traditional textbooks or the latest educational apps have managed to address this challenge in an efficient and engaging way.
The study took place in real life classroom settings in Tokyo. 130 students and 6 teachers of Japanese as a foreign language participated. The students ranged from beginners to advanced level and were between 10-35 years old. The demo taught 150 writing characters. On average, after using our demo between 80-240 minutes the students memorized the meaning of 61 new writing characters. This learning progress was measured as the difference between the students average score in a pre-test and post-test. *Read the published paper HERE.
