Play with your words! Drops makes language learning effortlessly fun. Essential vocabulary is bound to your memories through beautiful illustrations and quick mini-games. Take the daily 5 minute lessons and ease yourself into the beautiful world of Japanese language!
Ingredients of the secret sauce?
100% illustrated: Pictures directly carry the meaning - you don’t have to use your native language at all! No intermediary. Faster, more effective and of course more fun for the Japanese learning process! :)
5 min sessions: limiting practice time sounds crazy but it makes it incredibly addictive - which is a cool thing for learning. The barrier of entry is close to zero so you can’t have any excuses: you’ll have 5 minutes even on the busiest day!
Effortless play: We know why games are fun and addictive and distilled the essence into Drops. The result is a truly immersive experience but it’s not a waste of your time while you play because you build valuable knowledge.
Quick: Keyboard typing is painfully slow. Welcome rapid swipes and taps! Trust us, you’ll need those extra seconds during the quick learning session ;)
Vocabulary only: Zero grammar, just handpicked practical words. That’s our focus and we do it extremely well. The app teaches the Japanese “alphabets” Kanji and Kana (hiragana and katakana) too!
Forge a habit: Drops wants to make you language learning addict. Effectiveness is nothing without a well established habit. We can help you build one!
We are extremely proud of our lovely word pronunciations by seasoned voice talents!
Drops is free for casual learners: more than 3300+ words in 150+ topics are all available for everyone. Hardcore language learners can subscribe for premium to progress faster with unlimited Japanese language learning time.
Our goal is to empower people of the world via language knowledge by providing a special tool that utilizes the universal language we all speak: pictures.
Keep tuned as even more languages are in the works!

Ratings and Reviews
I have just started using drops and although I don’t have premium I am learning so much! I get around 2 five minute session a day (without premium) and although they seem quite short, I get a lot out of them. The fact that they are short sessions helps me to really remember the information and I love how every day they go over what you have learnt the previous day so that you don’t forget. I would definitely recommend using this app if you are looking for a steady and efficient way to learn some Japanese!
Very nice app
Have been looking for an app to learn how to write Japanese, after trying a few I stuck to this one. Play-full, easy to use and it somehow always gets me to do a bit more. I like how repetition works within the lesson, it does not getting boring, as it’s mixed in in the right dosage.
This is the best app I've found for learning Japanese so far. It is perfect for getting the characters stuck in your memory. The only negative is the price of the subscription. I think you guys are pricing yourselves out of having one of the most popular language apps on the market. A lot of people, especially young kids(your main audience), will not pay for the subscription at its current price. I think lower prices would get you more users and you could really challenge duolingo for top spot on the language app chart.
