Kakugo is an application that helps learning Japanese. It includes
multiple tests to memorize hiragana, katakana, and kanji and adapts to
the user’s learning pace.

One of the biggest difficulty with
learning Japanese is memorizing kanji and vocabulary. While learning
them by just reading and writing them everyday may work, the more kanji
you know, the harder it gets and the more time it takes to revise them
all. Proper tools can help you memorize these huge amounts of knowledge
to more quickly become a fluent Japanese speaker.

Kakugo is one of
these tools. It helps learning and revising kanji and vocabulary in an
efficient manner. It uses Spaced Repetition in a unique way that adapts
to the user’s pace. If you only have time to revise 30 kanji every day,
or if you can revise as much as 100 kanji every day, Kakugo will adapt
and test you on the right kanji at the right time for you to memorize
them. There is no “kanji of the day” list to revise, you can start and
finish a session whenever you feel like it.

Kakugo also features a wide variety of tests to help you find the best ways that will help you learn Japanese.
