New App Teaches Japanese, Korean, and Chinese Language Learners How to Write Kana, Hangul, and Hanzi

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 5 novembre 2018

Drops today launched Scripts for iOS and Android, becoming the first multi-language app to teach language learners how to write character-based language systems. With just a few swipes of a finger, learners will be able to write Japanese Kana, Korean Hangul, and traditional Hanzi characters. In the coming months, Scripts will add simplified Hanzi, Thai, Kanji, Arabic, Hebrew, Russian Cyrillic, and Hindi. The launch of the Scripts app doubles down on the company’s visual learning approach.
In the past few years, Americans have expressed significant interest in learning Asian languages – a trend many attribute to Asian countries’ growing global influence. Even languages spoken in American homes are shifting, with Chinese now the second most popular language spoken at home after Spanish.Yet, for many beginners who want to get started with learning character-based languages, the writing system, lack of an alphabet, lack of cognates, and status as a tonal language prove to be difficult. There is a high barrier to entry for many Asian language learners. For the first time, Drops is offering a new, intuitive way to learn how to write character-based language systems through Scripts. Learners will be able to learn each character through a mix of fun games where they will be shown step-by-step instructions on how to draw the character with their finger on a smartphone. The physical act of drawing a character makes it more fun and realistic for the learner, while also increasing retention.Drops has exploded in popularity, recently surpassing 7.5 million downloads and on its way to 5x user growth in 2018 alone. Drops’ short, visual games make language learning a fun part of millions of users’ daily routines. The company has been adding underserved languages, such as Hawaiian and Icelandic, with plans for more niche languages in the future. They’ve also significantly expanded their content slate, and now have thousands of words across 31 languages.

Japanese Works of Art from Antiquity

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 24 settembre 2014

Japanese Works of Art from AntiquitySouth Kensington – Christie’s is pleased to announce the second annual sale of Asobi: Ingenious Creativity – Japanese Works of Art from Antiquity to Contemporary at South Kensington on 15 October 2014, during Frieze week. From its inception to the present day, there is a joie de vivre that runs through Japanese culture and is apparent throughout the visual arts. Asobi gokoro, or ‘the playful heart’ manifests itself in an endless play with form, from wilful distortion to tongue-in-cheek humour; light-hearted treatment of serious themes to the juxtaposition of unexpected elements. The leitmotif of the sale, Asobi connects prehistoric ceramics, 16th/17th century screens and 20th century avant-garde painting, photobooks and photographs. Comprising over 170 lots of fine Japanese art which highlight the visual appeal, accessibility and relevance of Japanese art to contemporary collecting tastes, this dynamic sale is led by a magnificent panel by Shibata Zeshin (1807 – 1891), which is the only exhibition panel of this scale to come to auction (estimate: £600,000-800,000, illustrated above). Presenting a rich and varied array of opportunities for established and new collectors, with estimates ranging from £800 up to £800,000, the sale is expected to realise in the region of £4 million. A selection of highlights will go on view first at Christie’s King Street on 2 and 3 October, followed by the full pre-sale exhibition at Christie’s South Kensington from 11 to 14 October.
