A cute app :)

I’m really glad I managed to find this app! I use a few different apps to learn katakana/hiragana: 2 for drilling, 1 (this one) for reaffirming which I feel is especially important, and another for writing and pronunciation. This app in specific really helps to ground the things I’m learning because of the word challenges where I have to spell them out. I do wish there was a larger variety of words in the challenges because it’s 20 to pass and a lot of them repeat but I understand app development is hard. You all deserve five stars because I can see the hard work that was put into it.

Thanks for the review! Please try our new Japanese Language Quest app. It has more features and sets of vocabulary to help you practice. It also combines Hiragana and Katakana Sensei into the same app.

This is great!!!

The lessons are really great! And if you don’t know the hiragana character there is a full chart for you to study on in the app. I find it very helpful to the point where I made flash cards of each character in the chart. I use the cards when I’m not busy (which is quite often due to the quarantine) and once I’ve had enough of the cards I test myself with the challenges. Thank you for this! I look forward to also using “Katakana Sensei” and using the same method.

I was having trouble on some of the characters but every app I tried just wasn’t helping. I finally found this and got it, it helped me so much! It actually effected my learning and helped me a lot! It allows you to study the words in a way that helps you memorize them. Even if you are still struggling you can take the lesson again. I like to repeat doing lessons over and over, it just helps me memorize the characters better.
