App Description

We love learning Japanese! We made this app to make learning Hiragana really easy with the help of mnemonics. If you've never used mnemonics to learn something like this before, then dude, they are (like totally) epic.

Features include:

* Illustrations and mnemonics to help you remember all 46 Hiragana.
* Fade-in/fade-out animations for the mnemonics (which we think helps them stick in your mind as you look at just the Hiragana).
* Hiragana sounds play automatically with the mnemonics to reinforce the correct pronunciation (or you can turn them off if you want).
* Take the Hiragana quiz to check your progress and hone your skills.
* Save review time with quick lookup of Hiragana mnemonics for just the ones you got wrong in the quiz.
* Lessons, review and quiz for all 61 modified Hiragana sounds too.
* Japanese words quiz (now you can really read some Japanese!).
* Choose between modern and old school Hiragana fonts in the quiz, to practice reading different Hiragana styles.
* Speed test.
* Cute hen (under HE)!
