JLPT Words is a helpful tool to learn the Japanese language and prepare for the JLPT exam by studying Japanese vocabulary. It contains a dictionary of over 8,000 words required for the exam across all 5 levels. The dictionary can be searched on using kanji, kana (hiragana/katakana), or romaji. You can filter the dictionary by JLPT levels and each word is colour coded according to its level. You can choose to display or hide romaji in the app.
Of course, you can use my app even if you don't study for the exam! It's perfect for vocabulary review and can help to memorize kanji.
It contains vocabulary for all levels - JLPT N1, JLPT N2, JLPT N3, JLPT N4 and JLPT N5.
You can mark words as:
* favourite - you can choose to use only favourite words during the quiz,
* blocked - excluded from the quiz.
You can test yourself using a configurable quiz to learn the Japanese language quicker. The options allow you to select:
* JLPT level,
* whether use all words or favourite words only,
* English to Japanese or Japanese to English quiz,
* entry type: multiple choice using buttons or text entry,
* script used to display questions and answers (kanji, kana, romaji),
* number of questions,
* how learning progress is used to select words for questions.
The application tracks your learning progress and displays it against each word. To make your learning easier, words that you know less are selected more often for questions in the quiz. You can also filter the dictionary of words by learning progress and JLPT levels as well as hide and show translations.
You can back up your progress as well as your favourite and blocked words and restore into a different device. You can do that using Dropbox (if you have an account) or SD card.
