Does anyone know of any similar online audio quizzes for Japanese? What I'm envisioning is a quiz where I hear the word and have no visual cue whatsoever. I don't even want to see the English translation because that might give me a hint. Then I can write my answer, reveal the answer and compare. Right now, I'm still reviewing kana, so I'd like to see mostly syllables and a few very basic words. Definitely no sentences yet. As I progress, the quizzes would include kanji and then work up to full (short) sentences.
The closest I've been able to come so far is:
-- Problem here is I can't do exclusive audio quizzes. Audio questions pop up randomly with all the other questions. I wish I could occasionally do just audio reinforcement.
2. Japanese Phrases -- TJP's ITunes app
-- Problems here are a) I wish I could configure it so I could have the English side of the card display first, b) I wish I could spoiler-block
3. My Japanese Coach
-- Again, I wish I could isolate just audio.
I'm beginning to get fairly good (key word, fairly) at recognizing kana when I see them and at sounding out kana words (even though I rarely know what they mean ). That's a step in the right direction. I'd like to gain more confidence in the other direction.
Ideally, I'd like to write my answers on paper, just as I did in elementary school. I believe taking the time and concentration to write on paper would strengthen my absorption of the material. In addition, I think it would help me learn to "hear" properly and begin to directly associate a sound with its character (instead of mentally translating it to romaji, then to kana/kanji).
So, any suggestions?
