The “First year Kanji learning drills” application is a learning app that contains all 80 Japanese symbols learned by first year elementary school students in Japan.
Students can acquire reading and writing skills by looking at Japanese with their eyes, listening to it with their ears, and writing it with their fingers, all while having fun.
Through practice, students learn how to use symbols, and the meanings they contain, through an ample supply of example sentences.
The stroke order of the symbols is shown through an animation so that students can learn to write in the proper order.
Students can also test their knowledge through checking symbol pronunciation and test functions.
When students write in an improper stroke order, the re-do function starts up, allowing them to memorize the correct order.
Symbols that have already been written are saved so that students can continue practicing every day.
Through the enjoyment of seeing the ○ symbols increase with each symbol remembered, students can have fun learning while feeling a sense of daily accomplishment.
With the test function, students solve 20 questions, have their score marked, and receive a medal based on the number of correct answers.
The test function shows the results of tests and additional tests broken down into a number of data.
In addition, through the school-use setting (multi-user), up to 100 students can be registered on one device for use at schools, after-school learning centers, and more.
Ratings and Reviews
I really like this app and plan to use it to learn kanji before putting it in my preferred flash card app for long term study. Also, another reviewer mentioned a bug where it freezes when you use the hiragana guide. I thought it happened too, but then I found out that if I tap on the hiragana that fulfills the answer instead of hiding the guide, it appears on the answer box and I could move on without resetting the app.
Really cool app!
This is really helping me with my kanji. I was surprised there's no English in the app though, since the description here in the app store is in English, but I suppose that isn't an issue for most customers, since the app appears to be designed for native-speakers to teach their native-speaking kids kanji. However, even if you're like me, a non-native-speaker studying Japanese on your own, the app is pretty easy to figure out, but you might want to have a machine translator or dictionary handy: you won't be able to read some things, like the settings menu (and its very complex kanji), without it.
A great app just got better
Love the new update and the addition of new sections to practice the Kanjis. The animations runs smoothly and I love that there is a reading section to test the knowledge of the Kanjis and all their readings variations.
Keep the good work, you're doing great. I hope to see this same update in all your apps.
P.S. Is level/year 6 the final app? Or will it be more? level 1 of middle school (中学)
