Everything in our dictionary is sorted by how commonly it is used, be it vocabulary, kanji or kanji readings, so you will always first see information that is the most relevant.
If you search for a conjugated word we will tell you its exact conjugation; if you give us a full sentence we will parse it and break it down for you. Not sure how to conjugate a verb? We got you covered. Just type it in the search bar, and click on "View conjugations..." in the search results.
For any new vocabulary you will be automatically taught all of the kanji necessary to be able to read it.
Just copy-paste a piece of text you'd like to read and we'll automatically extract all of the words from it and teach them to you in chronological order as they've appeared in your text so that you can start reading almost immediately!
Do you have a favorite anime you'd like to be able to watch without subtitles? We have 16028 prebuilt decks with vocabulary from 1062 different anime waiting for you. Don't like anime? Then maybe you'll be interested in our 3631 decks spanning 363 Japanese dramas?
We use a technique similar to one used in Heisig's hugely popular Remembering the Kanji book to teach kanji, however we don't use his keywords. Instead we manually went through thousands of kanji ourselves and painstakingly assigned them our own, better keywords.
Most spaced repetition programs use a variant of the SM-2 algorithm created in the 1980s. While it is a great algorithm we can do a lot better with the current technology. We use our own specialized spaced repetition algorithm based on modern machine-learning techniques which handles things like lapses, irregular reviews, etc. significantly better than SM-2.
We will tailor your dictionary search results to what you have learned, so, for example — we will prioritize showing you example sentences which contain kanji and words you already know.
