Practice Japanese As You Browse the Web With Mainichi

MainichiWhen trying to learn a language, the key is practice, practice, practice. However, it can be hard to find ways to integrate this practice into your daily life. The Mainichi Chrome app aims to help users solve this problem.

When you install this app, which is available for free in the Chrome Store, you will see a stylish illustration of an item or concept together with both the Japanese and English word for it. The look of the display mimics a flashcard and is centered in the browser window. The words are all written out in either hiragana or katakana and, where relevant, the Japanese characters are also shown below. You can opt to also see the romaji for the word if you need help learning how to pronounce it. Every time you reload the page or open a new tab, you’ll see a random word. While you won’t learn to speak Japanese from Mainichi, if you are already working on learning the language or keeping up with your skills, it is a fun way to add it to your daily routine.
