I continue to be stuck in my Japanese learning rut. Work, life, procrastination and indiscipline battle my every attept to stick to a Japanese learning and practice schedule which has forced me to trying different ways to retain the little Japanese I know while slowly incorporating new Japanese words and phrases into my minuscule Japanese vocabulary. One of those very basic or what I like to call “foundation tools” is a new Google Chrome extension I found a few weeks ago called Japanese Kana.
I spend on average about 10 hours a day in front a computer screen doing tasks related to my job, and hobbies such as photography, gaming and my regular web browsing addiction, um I mean habit. Japanese Kana is a Chrome extension, my most used application on the various computers I use by a very large margin.
Japanese Kana is a simple to use extension that teaches users about Hiragana and Katakana. Although I no problems with hiragana, I regret to admit that Katakana is still a little troublesome for me and this tool is perfect for those looking to learn and/or practise kana. Check it out in the Chrome Web Store and leave a comment with your thought on it or any other Kana or general Japanese learning tool you use regularly.
Below is a video I whipped up showing Japanese Kana in action. Grab Japanese Kana on the Google Web Store here.
