Learn a new writing system with Scripts app:
Korean Hangul, Japanese Hiragana and Katakana , Chinese Hanzi, American Sign Language (ASL), Indian Devanagari, Russian Cyrillic and Latin alphabet

Drops Scripts takes the boring out of reading and writing in a new language. Learn Chinese characters, the Korean alphabet or the Japanese writing system with gorgeous minimalist illustrations and fast paced mini games.

The best part? It only takes 5 minutes a day. In fact, that’s all the time you get! Insane? Yes. But does it work? Absolutely!

Why Drops Scripts Works

• Drops Scripts is 100% visual: Learners connect the characters and letters directly to their pronunciation. Doing this cuts out the middleman. Learning is faster, better, and more fun!
• 5-minute session limits: Limiting learning time may sound counterintuitive but it makes Drops Scripts incredibly addictive. And that’s a good thing in terms of language learning.The obstacles standing in your way of finally starting to read and write in a new language are made obsolete. No excuses: you ALWAYS have 5 minutes!
• Effortless practice: We took a good look at why games are fun and addictive, and then integrated those elements into Drops Scripts to create an app that is incredibly immersive. But unlike other games, you don’t waste your time playing. Instead you build a valuable asset--the ability to read and write in a new language.
• Rapid pace learning: We believe in fast-paced, intuitive learning, and typing on your phone’s keyboard is anything but fast. Say hello to rapid swipes and taps! You’ll need those extra seconds to get the most out of your 5 minutes. ;)
• Writing focused: Learn to write in Chinese, Japanese or Korean with curated games and activities that make learning a new writing system fun. Drops Scripts focuses on one thing and it does it extremely well.
• Forge a learning habit: Drops Scripts wants to convert you into a language learning addict. No matter how effective your learning tool is, if you don’t use it on a daily basis, it doesn’t really matter. Drops Scripts breaks down those barriers for you so that learning to read and write in a new language becomes a regular part of your day.

Every letter and character in Drops Scripts is accompanied by high-quality audio and pronunciations, recorded by professional voice talent.

Drops Scripts offer a complete package for free for casual learners: 5 minutes of blazingly fast and epic fun learning per day with more than 3 writing systems. More dedicated language learners can subscribe for premium features to achieve faster progress and unlimited learning time.

• Our goal is to empower the people of the world with knowledge of a new language by providing a special tool that uses the universal language we all recognize: images.

P.S.: We take full responsibility for any potential addiction to language learning.

5 minutes is great

The 5 minutes a day takes a while to get used to but is perfect, but one idea for this great app would be to let the user choose what to learn. Maybe changing things do you know what subjects you are learning. Because I’m doing Chinese at the moment I am learning completely random words. Something for sentences would help. Also, if you read every review then please reply to this one!! (developers)

Useful with potential to be even better...

I mostly use Drops for scripts/alphabets anyway, so this app is great for me! There are a couple of issues:

So far it’s seemed a little slow to load diagrams etc., which is a problem when you only have five minutes.

Also I am having an issue present in Drops as well, which is that each character(/word) is repeated again and again before moving on. This could be by design, and might work for some people, but I would prefer that each new character be added into the “pool” of learned characters and that this would then alternate/cycle, rather that working on one character for a block of ten-ish rounds at a time (however, someone else using the Drops app has told me they don’t have this issue, so it could in theory just be my device?).

I would also love to see more rounds where there is no visual prompt (i.e. the character displayed at the top, or arrows directing your strokes) scattered through the cycle, to act as “tests” of your memorisation—otherwise, it’s easy to rely on those prompts!

Either way, I really like the concept and the general structure of having writing practice integrated into the memorisation process, and I hope to see more scripts added soon! :D

Learning Japanese

I’ve been learning Japanese on Duolingo which has been amazing! I’ve learnt so many new words, even though I just started only two weeks ago, however, I was finding it quite difficult to neatly draw the letters and I looked for an app that might help me write the letters better and more neatly. I came across ‘Scripts’ and so far, it’s been great! It is helping me to learn how to write and I love it!
