So I am already in loved with WK for learning Kanji. I started learning Kanji on my phone a bit as I am learning Hiragana right now but any real application I try or try to translate requires Kanji knowledge. So far the pace with WK is perfect(slow at first as many mention, but I like that right now).
I’ve got most Hiragana down and I have noticed that WK has actually accelerated the process of me remembering some of the ones I didn’t have down the best. But I digress.
Is anyone else learning both at once? If so what resource are you using for the Hiragana and Katakana? I would be interested if there was something as involved and expressive as WK for learning the Kana. My current list of resources below:
Living Language Japanese- Actual 3 stage course with a book dedicated to the Kana. Books, Audio CDs, and online resources. Good so far but I find myself utilizing the applications below more often.
Duolingo- Most functional I have found so far. Very kind in terms of how it adjusts you to the language.
Mondly- Throws you right under the bust. Right from the get go it skips teaching you the Kana and goes into vocab and communication. This is what inspired me to learn Kanji as it throws them at you 5 seconds in. Excels in conversations, and applicable Japanese though. I expect it to be useful in a years time more so than it is now.
Drops- The 5 minute a day app is great for me to review Kana and targeted subjects like food items.
Kanji Study- What I first used for Kanji before finding the graceful blessing that is WK. Still a great app though if I could get my phone to more easily switch to Japanese written input on the fly.
JED- An app for Japanese Radio. I listen to some news and various stations on and off to help expose me to the audio portion of Japanese. I have already noticed I can pick up some words.
On the side I play Japanese games. Huge Monster Hunter, God Eater, Toukiden fan. I use a VPN service and have a Japanese Google Play account as well as have played around with some DMM.Com stuff.
