I'm not diggin' it.
by Brianna Baka
Because I'm so desperate to learn Japanese, I'm going to keep up with it and see if I can't pick up on this, or gain the knowledge that supposedly everyone else out there reviewing this software is gaining.
I understand what they're trying to do: The whole, "teach you the way you learned your language" thing. But now that I HAVE a language I already know, I want to know what it is I'm learning.
The most frustrating thing is I'm pretty sure with some pictures, I'm learning the wrong thing. I started looking up some of them, And where I thought I was learning "The clown had blue hair" It turns out I was only learning "He has blue hair"
Which is annoying.
That goes with A LOT of the pictures I'm seeing. What they're showing me could be ANYTHING.I don't know what I'm learning, because as where they mean one thing in their language, I'm thinking another thing in mine. So I'm learning wrong because of this. It's very aggravating, and makes me want to pull my hair out.
And like what was said in this review: It is way too easy to cheat. I can click something by remembering one word, Note: I don't even know what the word means, or contributes to in the picture, But I know it goes with that picture.
And it be right, and suddenly, a million clicks later, I'm done. And have learned basically nothing.
I wish there was at least little hidden "English help notes" Or something. Where if you can't figure it out, you click it on the side and it tells you what that picture means. Seems like that would be helpful for my analytical brain.
