Mina-san,


Since the launch of our Learning Center, we've had listener after listener tell us that they wished they could take the Learning Center on the go. Well now you can! We're bringing some of the best features straight to your iPod with the iLearning Center! Please let us know what you think!


Yoroshiku onegai shimasu!

This is for the iLearning technical person, whoever that is...


I've been trying out iLearning on my daughter's Nano and encountered the following problem.


When using menu item #7 "Play Entire Lesson," the link failed to work. For example: from Beginner Lesson #147, the link in the FullLessonLink folder is: [a href="https://www.japanesepod101.com/song=Beginner Lesson #147 - Looks Good" rel="nofollow"], but the song title on the Ipod is actually "Looks Good." Once I manually renamed the song, "Beginner Lesson #147 - Looks Good," the link worked fine.


Also, a clarification for your PDF instructions. When you download subsequent lessons to your Notes folder, you want to drop the new lesson folder (i.e., Beginner Lesson #147) INSIDE the JapanesePod101.com folder. Then it will be listed with all the other lessons you've downloaded.


Domo arigato,

Johnさん、

The fonts are bad on an iPOD video as well (note that I am 42 years old and this is a factor). Also a problem is that the fonts are underlined to indicate the hyperlink. This makes them even more unreadable.

The iPOD Wizard looks very interesting. Perhaps I can try this next week after the JLPT test.

Interestingly, the fonts are LARGEr in the LYRICS section of the iPOD than in the NOTES section. I don't know why this is the case. I have no problem reading the Japanese when it is in the LYRICS size fonts.

What a great resource!


I've been trying the iLearning feature on my daughter's Nano. Works fine, but the characters are very small...especially the Kanji. :sad:


Would the display be easier to read on an iPod Video, or will the characters be the same size as on the Nano?


Another possible solution...anyone tried enlarging their font size with the iPod Wizard software? (see link below)

what does everyone think?

should i stop downloading automatically?


my impression is that downloading manually will be better.


i'm afraid of having duplicates on my iPod, since it uses up memory.




also, as a suggestion, can your tech team write a script that installs the notes/audio files automatically?

I was confused a bit at first as well, but I got some help by email from the JPod folks. Once you get to the Learning Center page for the particular lesson you are interested in, you'll see that menu going down the left side of the screen. Beneath "Lesson Content", you'll see "iLearning Center" (under "Grammar List"). Click on "iLearning Center" and that will take you to the files you need to download and install on your iPod. I think it's a little confusing because of the double usage of "Learning Center".

markysan, it's easy: you go to the learning center page,it depend from where you begin: if you begin from the home page: select the lesson you want, and click on the learning center link , on the left you have under lesson specific: the name of the lesson and a few lines down: ilearning center: you click on it and at the right you have the links you want

you must select a lesson qith ilearning center materiel, only beginner or advances lessons from now on

the iLearning Center sounds great!


i've found JapanesePod101 via the iTunes shop and i subscribed to the podcast, so i get automatic downloads.


i recently became a Premium Member to use the Self Study Learning Center to prepare for the JLPT this year.


I'm confused about how to get the iLearning Center content.

It's not automatic, right?


Nobody else seems to be confused about it, so maybe I'm just stupid. (笑)


any suggestions?


宜しくお願いしま~す!

Hello again

everything is okay: in fact, it take just a very very longer time to load the notes in the ipod video comparing to the old ipod. I just have to learn patience, thank you for the quick reply
