You can now test your kana knowledge with timed challenges.

There are eight challenges that test various fixed groups of kana.  There is also a custom challenge that uses your currently selected kana.

Challenges must be mistake-free, and best times are saved and displayed.

Access them on the study tab.


  • The timer doesn’t begin until you submit your first answer.
  • There are shorter ways to type certain kana.   can be typed ‘si’,  ‘ti’, and  ‘tu’.  Same for katakana.
  • Enabling speed mode on the options tab can improve your speed by eliminating the extra keystroke needed to submit each answer, but it’s also easier to make a mistake.
