SUN Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President and CEO: Shunpei Nakasone) is extending the free period for the Japanese language learning app “KURASHI STUDY”, which was developed to support overseas residents in Japan during Corona, until March 31, 2021.
■ Campaign background
Official procedures are adapting daily due to the Corona pandemic, and it is not easy for overseas residents in Japan to follow these changes in Japanese. The language barrier has caused problems with obtaining information about preventative measures, and communication issues when visiting medical institutions. This campaign was initiated to help overseas residents in Japan, by providing a Japanese learning tool to overcome language and cultural barriers, in order to live a happy life in Japan, even during Corona.
This Japanese learning app “KURASHI STUDY” was developed as if you are advancing through a storybook, so that you learn the language, while also gaining insight about “living in Japan”. This app was made for those who may feel a yearning to know more about Japan, deepen their appreciation of Japan, or dream of living in Japan, and we hope that this app will make learning Japanese enjoyable and be useful while living in Japan.
■ What is “KURASHI STUDY” https://kurashi-study.net
It is a Japanese learning app and by advancing through the story, teaches both the “Japanese language” and about “living in Japan”. The content was made for overseas Japanese learners, especially those who are preparing to live in Japan or those who want to overcome language barriers whilst already living in Japan. The app helps the learner not only develop the basic skills of reading, listening, and speaking, but also learn about various rules that are necessary for living in Japan. The vocabulary and expressions that appear in the story have been selected to be useful in “everyday life in Japan” and some of these expressions may not be found in other teaching materials. Additionally, inclusive support for the N5 – N2 levels of the JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) and online Japanese conversations are provided through one-on-one communication with a Japanese teacher.
