And if you absolutely must learn Japanese to completion: we recommend our sister app - Scribe Origins. Scribe Origins is designed to help you RAPIDLY learn kanji. Scribe Origins is the ultimate study tool to learn Chinese characters. Practice reading kanji while seeing the primitive breakdown which hints at the underlying meaning of the character. Learning the hiragana, katakana, and Japanese kanji is vital for having a foundational understanding of Japanese language. Japanese writing really comes before everything else, as it allows your brain to specifically link word sounds, word meanings, and their written form together. Learning to speak Japanese before learning writing means your brain will learn one set of links, then needs to unlearn them and re-learn them, which is why most language students take 3 years to learn a language. To study Japanese language efficiently and effectively, the kanji writing system is foundational.
