Kanji Teacher is free. There's no advertising and no in-app purchases are necessary – it's just free, pure and simple.

Kanji Teacher knows not only all the 2,136 jōyō kanjis and their readings, but also the 8,000 most common Japanese words and how to pronounce them. This unique combination enables you to learn the Kun- and On-readings of the kanjis and apply and test what you have learnt straight away: both how to read a word and how to write a word you know.

Kanji Teacher has more features you'll love:

○ Practise your writing with Kanji Teacher! Every stroke is analysed: do the position, direction and order match up with the correct way of writing? Kanji Teacher helps you out with hints to begin with, but as you progress further you’ll be on your own.

○ Kanji Teacher is also a Kana teacher: learn how to read and write Hiragana and Katakana. 

○ Kanji Teacher comes with two dedicated tutors – one for Kana and one for Kanji. These tutors will accompany you through the entire learning process, explain Kanji Teacher, introduce new characters, present the tests and celebrate achievements.

○ Kanji Teacher uses multiple choice so you can be sure that you really do know the answer. And it also compiles the possible answers intelligently, ensuring that they all make sense and are similar to the correct answer, because Kanji Teacher is a teacher after all – it's strict, but this helps you learn more quickly.

○ Kanji Teacher uses a Leitner system so you can learn easy kanjis quickly and focus on the more difficult ones.

○ Kanji Teacher comes with around 6,000 sample sentences: Around 8,000 tests have been created based on these sentences, where the corresponding Kanji is omitted and has to be found. In addition you will find tests for 127 important geographical locations in Japan and over 1,300 Japanese first names and surnames together with their reading.

○ Kanjis can be grouped by JLPT level and school year and, most importantly, you can switch between both views without losing what you have already done.

○ Up to eight learning lists can be managed, searched, and the Kanas, Kanjis and radicals assigned. Additionally, Kanjis detailed in sections of popular textbooks and Kanken test groups can be assigned to one of these lists.

○ You can choose the correct answer, check it and move on to the next question with just one touch of the screen, which speeds up your learning and progress.

○ Kanji Teacher comes with Ulrike's Mnemonics, which were provided by Joy o' Kanji,a site where you can find playful, informative, photo-filled essays about each of the 2,136 Joyo Kanji.

○ Learning of radicals is supported in many different ways: with dedicated tests and an Analyze screen that shows which Kanjis are made up of them.


バージョン 12.3

Besides some bugfixes two important new settings have been added. 

○ Show answer: OFF (previous behavior), WRONG (new default), ALL
With this new setting you can control if the answer buttons show what they actually mean after answering the question. With WRONG this only happens if the answer was incorrect, and only the incorrect answer is revealed. With ALL it happens always and for all buttons.

○ Auto proceed: OFF, CORRECT (new default), ALWAYS (previous behavior)
This setting defines whether the next test is automatically presented when you release the answer button - or you have to press NEXT (or anywhere on the answers) to continue. Auto proceed helps you to learn faster: with CORRECT it happens if the answer is right, but in case of an incorrect answer you can look at the correct answer calmly and then continue. With ALWAYS it happens even in case of an incorrect answer. One behavior remains the same: As long as your finger is on the answer button or SKIP, the answer remains displayed, only when you release it "Auto proceed" becomes active.

The new default differs from the previous behavior, but you can simply set it back to the way it was before using the settings "Show answer: OFF" and "Auto proceed: ALWAYS".

Many thanks to Gabriel, Soshun and Goccia!





Best learning experience especially with Japanese

Theres many things I liked about this app, one is the extreme amount of kanji all located into one place with on, kun, and meaning. The lessons, test, and study style contains multiple choices answers as well as writing and reading ones. Theres alot more feature that are a great help for Japanese learners beginners or not. The only reget that this app should have, is not also being downloadable on Windows or Mac (since I tend to use my windows laptop more then I do with my phone) 😂😂😂


A must for JP learners!!

This is by far the most useful study app I’ve had since the major update. My only complaint is that the writing problems are pretty finicky, but that’s probably to be expected. I love this app!!


Best Kanji App!!

This is the one to get. It teaches you the way to read, write, and translates Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji. It teaches in set levels for easy beginners and quite challenging tasks for the people who have mastered the alphabet.
The way it shows, how, and when to use each word is very informative and it gives set directions for grammar and punctuation.

Overall this is a 10/10 Japanese learning app for people who are serious on learning the language. Hope to see more work from this developer 😊
