Description

Learning Japanese has never been so easy and fun! Join Tako in an adventure in which you'll learn to write and read Japanese. Through guided lessons, you'll learn to write hiragana, katakana and over 100 kanji correctly, as well as their perfect pronunciation recorded by Japanese teachers. Thanks to its elaborate writing system, you'll be able to learn stroke by stroke and in the correct order how to draw each character with a perfect calligraphy. This system will rate your stroke and correct you if you make a mistake. Practice each hiragana, katana or kanji individually in the Study mode and have a good time with fun minigames while you refresh all you have learned.

Features

  • Learn to write and read all the hiragana, katakana and kanji corresponding to the Noken 5 level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT)
  • Useful for those who want to learn from zero and for those who want to refresh their basic knowledge of the Japanese language
  • Play mode: where you'll learn through 88 guided lessons more than 300 characters, including hiragana, katakana and kanji
  • Study mode: where you'll be able to review and practice without pressure as many times as you want. Check your stats and follow your progress
  • Minigame mode: show what you've learned in varied and fun minigames
