Robo-Sensei

The Robo-Sensei educational software package is widely recognized as the most advanced Japanese language software program available and is fully integrated into the USF Japanese curriculum.

Robo-Sensei

Exercises by ordinary language software programs restrict student responses to a narrow range of fill-in-the-blank phrases or multiple-choice selections. In contrast, Robo-Sensei employs artificial intelligence and natural language processing (NLP) technology and provides extensive sentence-production exercises and detailed feedback messages in response to students' grammatical errors. Robo-Sensei develops a solid foundation of grammatical and sentence-production skill. Moreover, Robo-Sensei's lessons are associated with cultural themes (Tokyo Tour, Kyoto Tour, Department Store, Super Market, and so forth) and are accompanied by an abundance of photographic images of Japan that instill cultural familiarity. By the time students finish each lesson, they have toured a cornucopia of Japanese cities and major cultural sites.
