Are there any recommended websites, books or programs that more-or-less do the following:

- Give you a phrase in Japanese to translate into English, and vice versa, in a test format (so the answer isn't shown right next to the question).
- Provide the answers after you have given it an attempt.
- Do full phrases and not just individual words or characters.

I'm a little sick of the flashcards of "what is this character"? Or "what is this word"?... And also when I try to translate the phrases I need help afterwards to see if I was correct... and so I can see what I should have done.

So far the only site like this I've found was:


in the Japanese Verbs section (with the tests).

Try Kanji Gold. It's a really good program that contains a test like you're talking about. It can test kanji and vocabulary.

You know, we could talk to the Japanese Study Group to see if they'll set up a page.
If only I had more answers than questions...Wouldn\'t that be nice...
