How to...

This is the quiz page.
The vocabulary category is 'Animals', and the quiz is one where you look at the Japanese vocabulary written in romaji and choose the correct meaning (in English). There are many other vocabulary categories you can try, such as baseball, buildings, colours, frequently used words, family terms and so on.

This is a quiz where you must search for the correct meaning (in English) for Japanese words written in kanji/kana. Again, the chosen category is 'Animals'.

The number of vocabulary entries in the quiz is displayed, so you can check the time you'll need to complete it.

Not only does each quiz include a large number of vocabulary entries, there are also a lot of different types of quizzes brought together here for you.
When you have some time on your hands, look carefully for the particular category of quiz you want to take, then try it out!
