* Basic concept and object of application
Languages can't be learnt by just seeing and reading text because languages are essentially voice and sound. There are many learners saying although they have learned Chinese for long time, they can't remember voice tone of Chinese character and words.
This is because they are trying to learn the language by seeing and reading and they are not trying to learn with ears and mouth.
We can easily remember melodies of songs. It's the same as children easily acquire their mother tongue by just hearing without knowing characters. Languages can be easily learnt and memorized by hearing voices. It's the essence of language and it's the natural way of learning language.
The language pair of this application happens to be Chinese and Japanese, although the principle of this application can be applied to any language pair. So this time the application is meant to be used by Japanese to learn Chinese.
There might be people who think because the application doesn't show pinyin or katakana for sentences, they can't read sentences, so it's not useful for them. But we have to remind them that even if they see pinyin or katakana to practice listening, it won't help much, it won't improve their language ability. If they really want to improve, they have to associate meaning with sound and kanji characters with sound. This application is meant to help that.
Learners have to repeatedly listen to sentence by sentence until they understand it by just hearing it.
The easy way to examine whether they really realized the association of sound and meaning is to check to see whether they can say the sentence without seeing text. By repeating this method to expand the acquired words and expressions, they will see that they can naturally utter the target language itself, Chinese here, without translation in mind.
