文プロ(Bunpro) : (New N2 Material!) Japanese Grammar SRS Study Site


#2177

@marcusp Thank you so much for providing this resource! We have added it to the なら readings section. We are still working on getting each grammar point their own unique forum discussion page. Thank you for your patience. Cheers!

Well, I am impressed!

Sept. 3 update finally got me to try Bunpro out and most likely I’m subscribing after the trial period ends. :smile:

One question though (quick search yielded no answers): I’m going through N4 level now and voiced sentences stop at some point. I find them really helpful, so when can an update for currently unvoiced sentences be expected?

Thanks! :smiley:


#2179

@Uzuki We are delighted to hear that! Thank you for your kind words and interest in subscribing. We hope to have the rest of N4 audio up in the next few days. We apologize for the delay and appreciate your patience. Cheers!


#2180

So, no grammar reviews toady I suppose :wink:

@pushindawood you’re already working on this?


#2181

@Atani We apologize for the inconvenience! Everything should be back up and running. Thank you for your patience. Cheers!


#2182

That was fast. Everything’s working again, thanks! :blush:


#2183

Update!

N3 Lesson 10 now has 12 example sentences and 12 review questions! This means that all N3 grammar points are now accompanied by 12 example sentences and 12 review questions that build off of one another to reinforce what you have learned. This also means that you will no longer see sentences repeating in your reviews. You will constantly be presented with new sentences and new contexts to test your grammar knowledge. Cheers!

Hey, I recently subscribed :high_touch: . Thanks for building the website.

I’m using the site to brush up on N2/3 grammar and was wondering if you could make a feature to mark a grammar point as ‘already known’ or something.

Also it’d be really nice to be able to use the the wasd keys in addition to the arrow keys.


#2185

@Raionus Thank you for becoming a subscriber and for providing some suggestions! We currently have the ability to mark a grammar point as “known” when viewing grammar point information under the Meaning (below streak) and Readings tabs.


Right now the button only appears after you have added it to your reviews and we do not have a way to bulk mark grammar points. That is something that we would like to change/add in the future.

We will see what we can do about adding the wasd keys in addition to the arrow keys for navigation. We chose the arrow keys because we also use the ‘a’ key for showing/hiding answers in reviews. Thanks again for your feedback! Cheers!

Discovered bunpro on this thread a month ago, and I did the free trial period. I’m nearly done with all N4 lessons. Love it! It really helped me in focusing on my problem areas. Subconsciously learning new vocab as well since I read all the example sentences (heheh thanks for that). Will definitely be subscribing!

@dayslaelia Thank you so much for your kind words and interest in becoming a subscriber! Please let us know if you have any suggestions or if there is anything that we can do to improve your experience. Cheers!

Bunpro now has a new look!

Bunpro turns a year old this month and we thought it was about time for a new, modern UI.

Not a fan? You can always change back to your preferred theme in settings.

Let us know what you think!

Cheers!


#2189

Looks good, nice and clean, but I prefer dark backgrounds, so I’ve gone back to Classic Dark for the time being. Any chance of a Modern Dark?


#2190

I can’t believe BunPro is already a year old.

Thank you so much for creating this wonderful resource!

It truly has inspired me to learn grammar as putting it off for so long. I always love having a “game” aspect to my learning which is why resources like WK and BP really help motivate me. Seeing the number of grammar points I learn slowly go up and up is very satisfying. I used BP as my main method for N4 grammar. Now I’m tackling N3 with both BP and Tobira.

I really appreciate all the hard work and effort that has gone into this fantastic website. :slight_smile:

Also I second @meekohaw 's request for a Modern Dark look.


#2191

@meekohaw Thank you for your feedback! We are working on creating a modern dark theme. We will let you know when it becomes available. Cheers!

@lopicake Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so glad that you are finding Bunpro beneficial to your Japanese studies. Please let us know if you have any suggestions or if there is anything that we can do to improve your experience. We hope to have a modern dark theme up soon. Stay tuned! Cheers!

Have been using Bunpro for almost 1 month (free trial period). Almost done with my level (~70%). I agree, it really helps focus on your problematic areas, and the example sentences are really a good way to learn! For now it’s ~7.5/10 for me, would really love to have some sort of conjugation trainer (a training session where you conjugate adjectives, verbs… according to the grammar you studied so far). That would be 8/10 for me.

Still, sometimes, I struggle with some grammar points because maybe the description is not enough, or the sentences are not very good. Maybe you should add a 1-5 rating to each grammar point, so that you see which grammar points are good and which are not.

Another thing Bunpro is lacking IMO is bit more of structure. I would like to see, for each level (n1, n2, …), all the grammar points for nouns, then all grammar points for verbs,…Also a tree structure would be nice (how things/grammar points are interconnected). Also, what about the possibility for users to add more sentences? Also, I could not find anywhere any information about the time between reviews (you should really update your FAQ).

Thanks!


#2193

Love the new theme.


#2194

I love the new theme too.


#2195

Looking forward to modern dark! I actually prefer dark-on-light themes, but I’m so used to using Bunpro in dark that I want it back… Seriously, the new theme looks very nice.

Sorry if someone’s pointed it out to you, but at least two of the ほうがいい lines are voiced as ~ほうがいい but the default grammar on the card is ほうがいいです. One that comes to mind is 帰ったほうがいい.

@rssalessio Thank you for your feedback and for trying out Bunpro! We are currently tinkering with something called “fundamental reviews” that would focus on just the grammar point and all of its functions, including conjugations and what grammar rules it follows. These reviews would appear alongside your current reviews, further building upon what you have learned. However, this is still just a concept and it is one of many ideas that we hope will make your Japanese grammar studies more effective. Thank you for your suggestion on creating trees to interconnect grammar points. We are going through and adding related grammar to each grammar point and the addition of trees could help everyone better visual how everything is interconnected. You can add your own self-study questions on the fourth tab of each grammar point. These sentences will appear right alongside your normal Bunpro reviews. The SRS algorithm is 4hrs, 8hrs, 24hrs, 2 days, 4 days, 8 days, 2 weeks, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, and 6 months for finished. Cheers!

@madmalkav Thank you for the support! Also, nice to see you over on the Bunpro forums. Cheers!

@Oshin Thank you for your feedback! Please let us know if there is anything that you think we could do to improve the look and feel of the new theme for you. Cheers!

@somatophobia Thank you for your feedback! We are currently going through and reworking some audio and correcting inconsistencies. Comments like yours helps us pinpoint problem areas, so thank you! Cheers!
