If you have already learned Japanese hiragana and katakana but still need more practice to memorize them correctly
and permanently, this application is useful.
There are three difficulty levels.
Level 1: you can learn plain hiragana and katakana letters.
Level 2. you can also learn letters with ‘sonant marks’ (e.g.「が」),letters with‘double consonants’(e.g.「あっ」), letters attached the p sound sign (e.g. 「ぱ」), and letters with a bar (e.g.「コー」).
Level 3: you can learn a contracted sound with little 「ゃ」,「ゅ」, and「ょ」(e.g. 「しゃ」) as well.
Each level is composed of four stages and the achievement test.
Stage1: “Choose hiragana for a single katakana letter on the screen.”
Stage2: “Choose katakana for a single hiragana letter on the screen.”
Stage3: “Choose hiragana for multiple katakana letters on the screen.”
Stage4: “Choose katakana for multiple hiragana letters on the screen.”
Questions of the achievement test at the end of each stage include all types.
How to play
You will see hiragana or katakana on the screen. Three multiple choices then, appear below. If you choose the correct answer, you will see Ｏ, but if your answer is wrong, ×instead.
There is no scoring system because you are expected to repeat this app till you remember them perfectly and permanently. You cannot save your progress either, for the same reason.
Hiragana with a bar (e.g.「こー」) is not common while katakana with a bar (e.g.「コー」) is very common. However, you still practice both types for basic drills.
In less traditional Japanese, little「ァ」,「ィ」,「ゥ」,「ェ」, 「ォ」, and some others are sometimes seen in addition to traditional little letters「ッ」,「ャ」,「ュ」,and「ョ」. Another latest trend is the use of「ヴ」(「ウ」with sonant marks), when “v” sound is emphasized (e.g.「ヴィクトリア」) but we did not use these exceptions to avoid confusion.
