Description

After learning the hiragana, learning the katakana is your next step towards Japanese literacy! Taking up where Kana-chan's Read the Hiragana left off, Kana-chan's Read the Katakana builds on the same mnemonic device + spaced learning method, and adds vocabulary building features.

IMPORTANT

While it is not necessary to have used Kana-chan's Read the Hiragana before using this app, this app does assume (and require) an ability to read hiragana before it can be used effectively. If you have not finished learning the hiragana, you should do so before using this app!

*

This app was designed and developed by professional university-level Japanese instructors. You will learn to read the characters using the time tested and proven mnemonics approach, using simple stories that relate the form of each character to previous knowledge for ease of acquisition. You will be guided through learning each character one at a time, while constantly reviewing your previous learning.

Kanachan gives you practice words composed only of characters that you have studied so far, allowing you to practice new characters while simultaneously reviewing previous material. The repetition algorithm pinpoints your trouble spots, and doesn't waste your time with material you've already learned.

Kanachan's Read the Katakana also promotes contextual learning. You will only study the katakana in the context of real Japanese words, never as isolated, meaningless sounds. Vocabulary selection includes all katakana words on the suggested word lists for the JLPT Level N5 and N4 exams. Native speaker recordings allow you to practice your pronunciation and intonation as well, and the built-in record feature allows you to easily comparison to native speech.

Kanachan’s Read the Katakana allows you to use all features of the application for the first 100 cards before committing to purchase, so you will know exactly what you are getting before you pay anything. When you decide to upgrade, a simple in-app purchase allows you to retain all of your previous data for uninterrupted learning.

• Designed and developed by professional Japanese instructors

3.1.3 version requirment

:
Could not use it, because requires 3.1.3 ... I have 3.1.2 .... I don't understand Why make an app with this requirement. The difference between 3.1.0 and all the rest 3.1.X are minimum. I dough even that the SDK has changed... So I would recommend a lesser version restriction
I’m and eager to use this app.

Thaks :-)
