Your Personal Writing Tutor

Using advanced algorithms, our app will tell you right away if you did any mistakes. The instant feedback makes it easier and more fun to study.

A tap on the screen is all you need to see how new characters should be written. There's no need to carry around a heavy textbook or dictionary, just bring your phone and study wherever you want, whenever you want.

Let's You Focus on Learning

It's really easy to get started. Just start the quiz and you'll be presented with new characters and words to learn. As you go on, the quiz will mix in reviews of characters you learned earlier. All so that you don't have to worry about managing your studies, and can focus fully on learning.

A list of common words to learn is included, so you'll boost your vocabulary at the same time as you learn to write. There's no need for you to manually enter lists of words to learn, just go with the flow.

Spaced Repetition

For you to learn and retain as much as possible, difficult questions will come back more often. You don't have to worry about what to review. All questions come back at the time that is best for your learning.

Keep Your Devices in Sync

Do you have both a phone and a tablet? Don't worry, your results can be kept in sync so that you can continue whenever you like with whatever device is closest.
