Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We are thankful for all of your kind words, support and feedback. We hope that we can continue to live up to your expectations!

New N2!

N2 Lesson 10 is now available! While we still have some sentences to add and there will inevitably be some grammar points that we will include in the future, the core of JLPT N2 is finally here! With just over a week until the December JLPT, we realize that this does not give you ample time to study all of the newly added grammar points, but we hope that you can brush up on some points that you might be having trouble with and maybe even get a few cram sessions in.

N2 Lesson 1 now has 12 sentences and 12 review questions!

Happy studying and good luck to everyone taking the December JLPT! Cheers

  • Track how many days in a row you have studied.
  • Get motivated to make progress by earning XP, leveling up and collecting badges.
  • Block out distractions and focus during reviews.

Study Streak

Bunpro now tracks the amount of consecutive days you have signed into Bunpro and have done at least one review.

XP

Everyone will now earn experience points from reviewing grammar on Bunpro. Every time you put in a correct answer for a grammar point in reviews, you will receive XP. The amount of XP you earn is directly proportional to the grammar point’s current streak.

XP Breakdown by Streak

Streak 1: 10XP
Streak 2: 20XP
Streak 3: 30XP
Streak 4: 40XP
Streak 5: 50XP
Streak 6: 60XP
Streak 7: 70XP
Streak 8: 80XP
Streak 9: 90XP
Streak 10: 100XP
Streak 11: 150XP
Streak 12: 200XP

The amount of XP you have earned can be viewed under the Account dropdown or on your Profile page.

Levels and Badges

You can now level up in Bunpro! Your level corresponds to the amount of XP you have earned from reviewing grammar. The amount of XP required for reaching the next level is shown on the right side of the XP progress bar in Reviews or in the Account dropdown.

You will also be rewarded with badges, medals and other achievements for earning a certain number of XP, leveling up, staying consistent with your studies, or completing hidden challenges.

Focus

To better maintain focus on your studies, you now have the ability to hide the heads-up display (HUD) in reviews. This includes the top menu bar, your remaining review count, percentage, SRS and ghost review indicators, and your XP progress bar.

Simply click Focus On in the dropdown menu in reviews to turn on Focus. Set Focus to your default review set up in Settings.

Now that we have released Paths, we have shifted our focus to adding the rest of N2 example sentences and study (review) questions. We hope to have extra N2 example sentences and review questions available every week or every other week. In addition, we are also polishing all of the lower levels’ content, fixing audio and ironing out any remaining kinks. We really appreciate all of the invaluable feedback you have provided us.

Update! - March 8, 2019

All N2 Lesson 10 grammar points now have 12 sentences and 12 review questions! This means that all N2 grammar points now have enough study questions for each SRS interval, meaning every sentence that you come across will be different from the last.

Each review session will test your knowledge of the grammar point in new and unique contexts every time, so you no longer simply memorize sentences. Since Bunpro’s sentences are written in a way that build upon previously studied grammar, you also get more and more exposure to the grammar points that you have learned as you progress through each subsequent level on Bunpro.


Ooooh Shiny! Grammar tiles now display when you have passed all 12 SRS intervals and “burned” a grammar point.


Now that N2 grammar points have 12 sentences and 12 review questions, we are putting all of our effort into polishing all of the lower levels’ content, which means adding missing grammar points, fixing audio and ironing out any remaining kinks.

Thank you for all of your kind words, support, feedback, and suggestions. Please let us know if there is anything that we can do to improve your experience! Cheers!
