You can now test your kana knowledge by typing entire kana words, rather than just individual characters.

There are currently three sets of words available:  hiragana, katakana, and both combined.

The kana words in these three sets typically appear on the JLPT N5 (beginner level) Japanese proficiency test.

Access them on the Study tab.


  • The hiragana words in these sets are not typically written using kanji in Japan.
  • Speed mode is automatically disabled, since each word consists of multiple kana.
  • Shortcuts (e.g. ‘si’ for ) are not supported when working with words.
  • Word lists for JLPT N4–N1 will be added soon.
