Studycat in Japan
With the Hanami festival recently taking place in Japan, Studycat released a special app-event for the season. Studytown (the town in the Studycat app) was transformed into a huge Hanami festival, with Studycat and her friends Ali, Tom, Kitty and Bob all taking part in traditional activities and fun.
Here are some reviews from Japanese families and educators about the new Studycat app!
“The lyrics and animations are highly effective for learning basic grammar and words such as comparatives and pronouns naturally, and the songs are rich in variety, so singing along is a lot of fun!”
“Many of the games are intuitive and easy to understand, and even a 4-year-old child enjoys playing them. The songs also rhyme like English songs, and frequently used phrases, prepositions, etc. are incorporated, so it seems that you can naturally remember them while having fun.”
