“Learning Japanese” Game – Lesson 1: Hiragana

actionscript 3, fun, game, japanese

Hi there,

this is a small and simple game for learning hiragana.

Hiragana (平仮名 or ひらがな) is a Japanese syllabary, one component of the Japanese writing system, along with katakana and kanji;

The game is very simple but quite useful. This goes mainly for me and my Japanese language course mates: Manuel, Marco, Ester, Tommaso, Francesca, Barbara, Monica and offcourse the teacher Flavia chan :-) but can be useful for everybody studing this language.

To play you just need Adobe Flash Player 9 and installed support for japanese language in you operating system.

Start the game

    Hey there. Nice one!
    Started making one of these for myself a while back, but like most personal projects, it never quite got finished :)

    Good luck with the course!

    I got my boss to code up a littel program that reads hiragana to you while highlighting the character (like a mother reading to a child). I thought it would help me memorize hiragana/katakana:


    Have a look and see if it is maybe useful to someone besides me?
