I’ve been learning Japanese for a few months now and in this post I’m going to show you a few of the sites and apps that I think are very helpful. I will update this post whenever I come across new resources.

Hiragana & Katakana

Dr. Moku is a great app for learning how to read Hiragana and Katakana. It is amazing how well this works but it’s not for free.

The Android version is cheaper and consists of one app for both Hiragana and Katakana:

The IOS version is more expensive, split up into two apps for Hiragana & Katakana and it includes a writing practice:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dr.-mokus-katakana-mnemonics/id452226776

Hiragana – Learn Japanese and Katakana – Learn Japanese are two free Android apps with whom you can learn writing the Kana.

Kanji

WaniKani is the best site for learning Kanji in my opinion. The Kanji are split up into 50 lessons and you can try the first three lessons for free. Each lesson consists of several Radicals, Kanji and Vocabulary. Further lessons require a subscription which is $8/month or $80/year.

You can also learn the Kanji on your smartphone, there is an unofficial app for Android and IOS.

Basics & Grammar

123Japanese is a good free resource for almost any topic. I mainly use it for basic phrases and grammar. It is not complete so you may need to look for other sites after a while but it’s a great starting point.

IMABI is the most comprehensive resource I know and it is completely free.

Listening & Videos

The Waku Waku Japanese Language Lessons! from JapanSocietyNYC are a great way to learn basic words and phrases. You can watch them for free on YouTube:
