Learn Japanese Kana in 3 days

A simple and proven method to learn Hiragana and Katakana quickly and memorize them permanently.

There are many methods and apps to help you start learning Japanese. But to learn it means above all learn to deal with new character systems very different from our alphabet.

Kanjis (Japanese characters coming from China) are usually quoted in this category, there are two thousands of them, and are used to represent ideas. But their use is inseparable from two primary character systems, called "kanas", which are the only ones able to transcribe phonetically the Japanese language. Therefore, learning how to write Japanese requires perfect knowledge of hiraganas and katakanas before starting any other lesson.

Indeed, these two syllable systems are the base of Japanese writing and it is essential to know them by heart to start learning, reading and writing Japanese. Additionally, their knowledge is required to pass even the first level (N5) of the Japanese international test known as JLPT or Nihongo Nôryoku Shiken.

However, many methods tend to neglect the kana phase. That is the reason why I wanted to develop my own accurate and comprehensive method, which will help you become familiar with the kanas like the back of your hand through these two axes :

  • an efficient planning which greatly reduces the learning curve and thus offers to learn each character system in three days only;
  • and a bricks technique with which you will remember all the different characters more easily, and not forget them in the long term.
