This app will improve your Japanese listening comprehension skills and teach you to read Katakana.

See and Hear each Kana in big beautiful font.

Use the Quiz Mode to listen to a native Japanese speaker pronounce the Kana and then you can try to touch the Kana that was said. A native Japanese speaker will announce whether you were right or wrong.

Use the study mode to review cards, hear pronunciation, and learn common words that begin with the character in question.

Detailed Overview

Japanese 101: Katakana is an application that will drill your listening comprehension abilities by having you hear a native Japanese speaker pronounce a particular Japanese kana, and then prompt you to touch the Katakana that was just spoken as quickly as possible.

With repeated use this application will increase your Katakana recognition and reading speed, as well as your Japanese listening comprehension.

This app mimics a game commonly played in classrooms in which kana flashcards are strewn about the floor and the students have to quickly pick up the correct card when the teacher calls it out. The quiz mode of this app tracks the amount of time used, so you can challenge yourself to read the kana faster and respond more quickly and accurately.

This application will exercise the “listen and recognize” part of your brain that is normally missed in straight textbook study. Work these drills into your kana study sessions to ensure that you never forget how to read the kana characters!

You can enjoy Japanese 101: Katakana in two modes: Study Mode and Quiz Mode.

Study Mode: Review each kana one-by-one by hearing it spoken, seeing the kana on the screen, reading a quick tip on pronunciation, and also seeing words that commonly start with that character when applicable. The kana have been broken up in to manageable groups to aid you in your studying.

Quiz Mode: Quiz yourself to see how well you know your kana. Get instant feedback as you attempt to touch the correct kana after a native Japanese speaker has spoken it. You can also chose to select the correct answer from among 2 or 4 possibilities as a way to adjust the difficulty according to your level. You can also set the quiz items to appear from your target study group of kana based on the groups that they are divided into in the Study Mode. After the quiz you can see your score and review the Katakana items that you missed. You can also see how long it took to complete the quiz as a simple way to judge your recognition speed.

Hope you enjoy this and other Japanese 101-series applications!
