Our Method

Mastering kanji requires many years of learning and practicing.
That is why having a good memorization technique is essential.
Our memory works with associations. A new concept is easier to remember if it is linked to a familiar concept. KanjiApp uses a simple mnemonic technique that associates Japanese characters with original illustrations. It helps you remember the kanji easily, and forever. It makes you save time by making your learning less tedious !

108 illustrated cards

Originally, kanjis were graphical representations of objects or terms.
Their shapes evolved with the time, so nowadays it is impossible to see the link between the shape of the drawing and its meaning. We made the same process the other way round. Starting from kanjis, we created related and representative drawings to help you to remember even the hardest characters!
KanjiApp contains 103 kanjis of JLPT5 and also some additional kanjis that will ease your learning.



Pronunciation and vocabulary

Each card is completed with a "pronunciation" part, as well as a useful vocabulary list.


Characters Strokes

Each kanji-card sends you to the animated stroke of the character.
