Kana no quiz is a little educational tool, simple yet efficient, to memorize the transcription and pronunciation of Japanese kana (hiragana & katakana) in an quick, easy, and flexible fashion.

This program features several ways and many options to either teach the complete beginner or test the wizard skill on kana recognition and pronouncing.

Progressively, a great part of the Japanese writing (excepted Kanji) becomes phoneticaly readable to the foreign student, representing a first step into the learning of the language.

Cross platform

The same package works both on Unix (GNU/Linux, FreeBSD), Windows and Mac OS X using the same GTK+ interface.


Thanks to our contributors, Kana no quiz is currently translated into English, French, German, Portuguese of Brazil, Russian, Serbian and Swedish. Feel free to help that list growing up!
