We believe that to best learn a language, you need to be strong in all four domains of language learning. Lexikeet® Japanese emphasizes each area and automatically learns what you're good at and what areas to focus on for practice. Everybody's got different strengths and weaknesses, and no matter what yours are, we've got you covered with personalized learning based on Lexikeet's proprietary software technology.
Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji
Many Japanese learners start to pick up the basic Hiragana and Katakana syllabaries, but never get the opportunity to learn the full Japanese character system. In Lexikeet® Japanese, our goal is to help you read actual Japanese literature. We teach you Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji in a simple but effective way, so that you can feel confident picking up a newspaper, manga book, or video game and understand what you read.
Real, Permanent Handwriting
Some people are satisfied writing Japanese by typing in the romanization, and that may be all you need. But our unique handwriting system teaches you Hiragana, Katakana, AND Kanji, the same as a native Japanese person would write, correct brush strokes and all. No gimmicks, no computer-generated brush strokes; if you use our handwriting activities, you WILL learn to write Japanese correctly and keep it for a lifetime!
Conjugate Like a Native
Very few Japanese language learners feel very confident in their verb conjugations, and for good reason: Conjugating verbs can be hard! And yet, almost every sentence you'll ever want to say in Japanese requires at least one conjugation. Our Verb Munch game not only teaches you how to conjugate verbs, but also lets you practice almost 200 different verbs across 24 different levels. You can speak confidently, knowing that you've actually practiced every verb form with Lexi!
Robust Spaced Rehearsal
Lexikeet® Japanese isn't just online flashcards. Our unique spaced rehearsal engine caters itself to YOUR time and YOUR needs. Unlike good flashcard programs that let you independently test one concept at a time, our system correlates your specific data on listening, reading, speaking, and writing for every piece of Japanese vocabulary and grammar you learn, making tracking your progress both comprehensive and effortless.
Our Japanese language experts are constantly adding to our database of useful sentences, readings, and listenings. When you're ready to add more vocabulary, you can find a topic that you like, pull up a reading, and add any words you don't know right from the page! That vocabulary will automatically be added to your study so that you can not only practice your comprehension, but pick up the vocabulary you need to improve it without having to refer to your notes or export files!
Do Grammar, Not Just Learn It
Native Japanese people never have to learn the names of complicated grammar concepts to use them, so why should you? Our growing library of grammar and situational activities are designed to help you experience HOW to use grammar in a practical way, so that well-formed sentences will start spilling from your mouth quickly and easily. And we'll keep adding more principles based on YOUR feedback on what you want to be able to do and say!
One of the best parts about Lexikeet® Japanese is that there doesn't have to be any stress. You might have bad memories of stressful homework and scary tests in school, but we mean it when we say that your only job is to log in and play for fifteen minutes a day. We'll keep bringing back stuff you need to review exactly when you need to review it, so you can just focus on the fun and learning!
Catering to Any Skill Level
We give advanced users the tune up they need. Want to practice and improve writing Japanese characters? Want to brush up on vocabulary?
