You need to start learning a language from the very beginning, and it doesn't matter if it's your native language or incomprehensible Japanese. In this article, I have collected four applications that will help you remember the necessary information using the flash card technique.


This is a cross-platform application, and I talked about the Android version in a separate article. By default, Anki will not help you learn the alphabet because it is just an application for working with flash cards.

To start learning the language, you need to independently load the necessary base of cards into the application. Fortunately, Anki has a built-in database, and you don't have to search outside.
