You can learn Japanese "hiragana" for fun. You can enjoy mini game too.
Let's read, write and listen!
*There are three types of character in Japanese called "hiragana", "katakana" and "kanji".
Yes,the "hiragana" is basic.
What's New in Version 3.0.0
1) "Easy quiz" was added.
2) I added a new sound to "Write by tracing".
Could have been good, but...
At first I liked the app. As someone trying to get into the language I wanted something to help me write out and sound the characters without having to get out the old fashioned pen and paper. Unfortunately this does not allow me to avoid that fate, and it's frustrating because this app is almost perfect. The problem is they expect you to drudge through writing out several characters before even attempting to having you draw one from memory. The problem with this means you won't; unless, you get out a sheet of paper and hand draw the same character several times and basically throw the app away at this point because it no logger s raves a purpose. To summarize, if they would pop quiz you I. Smaller chunks this app would have been useful, but they didn't. Don't waste your time. This will be more useful after you can recognize the letters by site and just need to hear them.
I absolutely love it!
I recommend this app if you're a total beginner to writing hirigana. It took me a couple tries to get the hang of it and the voices were driving me nuts, but then I got it and actually the words they're saying are totally necessary if you're learning hirigana from scratch. My goal is to have hirigana down in a month before my fall class starts, so the way these lessons are divided up into 5 letter groups is perfect for me to add a new one each day while reviewing the previous ones. It's really good that they don't use romanji so you just have to jump in and think about what you're learning the way a native-speaking kid learns.
This app is a lot more fun than other ones. I liked the background sounds and overall feel. If you want to learn the hiragana (and learn some simple vocabulary along the way), you may enjoy this app.
