I think it’s common among Japanese learners a difficulty regarding reading katakana. I think it’s the small exposure we have of them. Almost all WK content, for example, is in hiragana, so when I’m using WK I’m improving my hiragana skill as well, and I’m noticing it! I can read hiragana a LOT faster than 2 months ago (there is still room for improvement, but I’m quite happy with the level I’m achieved). But katakana is a whole other story, I read it as slow as a turtle and I don’t know how to improve it… like, I tried using apps for learning katakana, but in the end of the day they are 1) really boring and repetitive and 2) they are only useful for learning to read the characters, not to improve reading full words - at least the apps I downloaded.
So that’s why I created this little post, anyone has any tips for improving katakana reading in a natural way? Like I said, hiragana improved “naturally” because I’m always exposed to it in my daily Japanese study, but words written in katakana are so sparse… I really wanted that somebody made a script that switched WK to katakana just for the sake of training it!
