There are two main contents: "Memory Hints" (mnemonic pictures) and "Quiz."
This is the first screen for "Memory Hints."
ดูทีละตัว : You can see pictures and animations for each of the 46 katakana, starting from あ (a).
Tap the icon on the right of the screen to see the picture and the katakana side by side.
Tap the icon on the left of the screen to see where the katakana you are looking at is situated in the Katakana Table.
ดูทีละวรรค : You can view the katakana and the relevant animations by row.
This is very useful in cases such as, for example, when you have studied up to the サ(sa) row yesterday and want to start from the タ (ta) row today.
When you get to the last katakana in each row the screen below will appear.
You can choose to do one of the following: go to the next row ("ไปยังวรรคถัดไป "), see the same row again ("ดูอีกครั้ง"), or go back to the Memory Hints menu ("กลับสู่ด้านบน")
ดูคะตะคะนะทั้งหมด : You can see all the katakana as a list.
This is useful as a summary because you can see all of the pictures and katakana shown side by side.
This is the first screen of the "Quiz" section. There are four types of quizzes in all.
- Look at the katakana and choose the corresponding romaji. ("อ่านคะตะคะนะ")
- Look at the romaji and choose the corresponding katakana. ("เลือกคะตะคะนะ")
- Listen to the sound and choose the correct katakana. ("ฟังเสียง แล้วเลือกคะตะคะนะ ")
- Look at the romaji and select the correct katakana from among similar-looking katakana. ("คะตะคะนะที่คล้ายกัน ")
The time it takes you to complete the quizzes is recorded so you can try to beat your previous best time.
You can reset the record any time.
There are simple explanations about katakana for learners who are completely new to katakana and Japanese.
It's not easy to remember all 46 of the katakana characters.
We hope you will enjoy familiarizing yourself with the Japanese language by learning katakana using mnemonic pictures!
