    Sharing is caring!

  • Thank you for this. I got 47/49, it took me awhile! Some of the words I could figure out but some I just didn’t know until seeing the list below. Why is katakana so much harder? Your quizzes are so helpful.

    • Great job! We use hiragana so much more often and therefore get more practice with hiragana. I will make more katakana quizzes and reading practice lessons in the future. It’s definitely a weakness of many students.

  • Love these quizzes, but I wish they would off an assembly of how I’m doing. They tell me my score, but don’t say what level I am or how I’m doing.
