Let’s learn kanji!

iKanji touch is the fun and easy way to learn to recognise, read and write Japanese kanji characters.

Kanji for everyone

iKanji touch is an extremely flexible app for learning kanji. It’s designed to work well as a reference and as a training and practice tool. The easy to use browser interface lets you quickly browse school grade jōyō and JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) kanji, perform searches and build your own practice sets. Flash cards show you everything you need to know about a kanji including its stroke order and example uses. New in version 2 is the ability to freely browse and search vocabulary too.

iKanji touch features tests for kanji readings, meaning, stroke order and compounds. You can test yourself on any of these aspects as you like or as part of iKanji touch’s spaced repetition based Teach Me system.

Flash cards

iKanji touch 2 has beautifully designed flash cards that convey all the important information about each kanji. See English meanings, readings, primary radical, example usages and test due date. Then tap to ‘flip’ the card over to see an animation showing how to write the kanji along with the stroke count.
