Kanji Guesser is an Ionic React web & mobile app aimed at improving your Japanese reading skills.
This app is under active development as of February 2020.
About This App
This app is a Japanese language learning tool designed to improve your kanji recognition skills and help you discern between similar-looking kanji. Kanji (漢字) are Japanese symbols that were borrowed from the Chinese writing system. There are thousands of different kanji, many of which are visually similar and hard to distinguish or recall for the non-native learner. This app aids you in distinguishing kanji by prompting you to choose the correct kanji for Japanese vocabulary words you already know.
In the Kanji Quiz, words will be shown to you on a series of flashcards with a kanji character missing from each word. You must choose the correct kanji from the available choices. You can configure the number of kanji choices presented to you in order to adjust the quiz difficulty. A reading gloss is provided to you as a hint either in kana (Japanese characters, かな) or romaji (English letters).
This app is built in React with Ionic 4 + Capacitor.
