Is the Japanese in the app enough for a beginner or do I need additional resources? 


We know there’s a lot to learn when it comes to Japanese, especially when it comes to stroke order and writing systems.

Our app will give you the head-start you need to get used to Japanese pronunciation, basic vocabulary, and grammar, as well as recognizing characters when you see them, which is ultimately what most people need. You'll still find yourself able to write with Japanese keyboards because those just require you to type phonetically and then pick the corresponding Kanji (which you'll learn to recognize in the app).

However, when it comes to learning how to write with a pencil/pen/brush, this won’t be possible in the app. The good news is that we have partnered with Skritter, a website and app made for teaching you radicals and how to write in Japanese (and Chinese)!
