"After a half hour, I was blazing through each exercise: highly recommended for beginners". - The Huffington Post

“I came across Dr. Moku's Hiragana Mnemonics....Thirty minutes later I had memorized all Hiragana". - BoingBoing.net

Mnemonics are memory tricks that use humor or a memorable personal connection to help you fix and break associations so your brain has no choice but to remember.

Perfect for the complete beginner, young or old, this is the foolproof and definite way to master the first steps in learning Japanese.

Each screen presents a Katakana character along with a mnemonic clue and audio clip. Read the clue, listen to the clip and move on to the next one. The alternating bold colors will 'reset' your brain so you start fresh with each character. Then take a quiz! You will be amazed at your ability to recall Katakana after just a few minutes.

Psst! Our long awaited Kanji app is now available!
