Now at Japanese Complete, subscribers get access to the Hiragana and Katakana listening tools.
Katakana was created around the same time as the Hiragana as an alternative script, like cursive in English. However, Katakana was allocated to special use for loanwords and foreign names in 1962. Works before then, such as works from 1950, can be entirely Katakana instead of Hiragana.
We’ve also revamped our quizzes to be less strict, and are rolling out new lessons with fresh material all the time.
