We made a lot of big changes here at Bunpro during 2021! Let’s take a quick review.
・ Added over 107 new grammar points, a massive increase on what we have been able to add in the past! We also finished the core of N1, a major milestone that we had been aiming for, for a while now.
・ We added 120 Reading Passages ranging in difficulty from N5 to N2. Each written in a way that builds upon what you have already learned, and emphasizes the grammar in each respective lesson. ( Useful to get an overall indication of your retention when finishing each lesson/N level)
・ Made it possible to click on grammar structures within our example sentences for N5 and N4, resulting in a popout that gives you a quick refresher on that grammar point. ( Useful for when you need to confirm your understanding of something quickly, without leaving your current study session.)
・ We began adding our own, bite sized (but still detailed) grammar writeups for each Bunpro grammar point. Focusing on giving you all the information you need to dive in and start using grammar effectively, straight away. ( Turning Bunpro into a more consolidated resource, that can support your learning, in addition to retention!)
・ Added 1100 N5 Vocab words with 9000 unique context sentences. Additionally, we made the vocab in example sentences interactable, opening a popout that displays the vocab and context sentences. ( Giving you more opportunities to immerse yourself in Japanese and develop your reading confidence.)
・ Created the new User Dashboard, giving you an all in one place to see your stats, and upcoming reviews. ( Making it easier for you to plan out your study pace, and get an ‘at a glance’ glimpse of your progress)
・ Completely redesigned the Grammar Point page. Changing the style and layout to better match the Bunpro modern themes and make room for future additions.
・ Revamped the Bunpro badges, making them something that you can be proud of earning, and want to show off. ( With tons of encouraging flavor text to support you along your journey!)
Plans for Bunpro in 2022
・ Bunpro Grammar Writeups for N4, N3, N2 and eventually N1. (Completing our initial -Bun Know- phase of the writeups)
・ Vocab SRS. (Including tools within vocab cards for deck building, and community sharing)
・ More Vocab - At least through N2. (A total of minimum 6000 new words, equaling 48,000 context sentences!)
・ Kansai-ben and other dialects. (Grammar structures focusing on more niche topics!)
・ Adding missing grammar, N0 grammar and slang. (Further supporting things regularly found in many types of media, but not the N-level tests)
・ An official mobile app with notifications, offline mode and more? Maybe! (We will do our best!)
・ We will also be looking toward creating a Bunpro referral system. (For when you tell your friends about us, and we want to thank you!)
・ Lastly, you might see a Bunpro merch store.
End of Monthly/Yearly Discount
In September we completed the core of N1 grammar. This has been one of our major goals for the past few years. With this milestone, and the addition of many other new features/resources, we are confident that we finally provide enough value to discontinue the discount on monthly and yearly subscriptions that was originally implemented.
From March 1st 2022, monthly subscriptions will return to their original planned price of $5, with yearly subscriptions being $50.
You can rest assured that we will not be increasing prices of the monthly and yearly subscriptions at any point in the future. One of our core philosophies is that education tools should be made available to everyone, not just at a reasonable price, but as cheaply as possible. That was our thought process when we had 100 users, and it will continue be our mode of operation when we have 1 million.
Should the discontinuation of the discount make Bunpro too unreasonable for anyone, seriously, please reach out to us. We have worked with others before who wanted to use Bunpro but through circumstances outside of their own control were unable to, and we will continue to do so going forward.
Happy Holidays and Happy Studying!
The Bunpro Team
