I've made some JLPT vocabulary sets on Quizlet which can be used in the HTML5 games on this site and the PhraseBot app.
Try out the CrossBots game shown below right now - it's HTML5 so you can play from your phone, no app needed! To play, you take turns against the other robot, matching words from the 2-layered grid to clear a vertical path before he clears a horizontal path.
*The data is from the http://www.tanos.co.uk/jlpt site which has long provided many excellent resources for studying Japanese, and especially for the JLPT in the absence of official lists.
The Kanji Connect screenshot below shows a completed game - do you know the meanings/readings for the compounds shown?
Here's a simple quiz for this screenshot - the cued word to find is 'short'. Also in there is the word for 'cute' and another for 'unskillful'. Can you find them?
PhraseBot can be used for any data imported from Quizlet, so it's great for beginners learning hiragana through to advanced students of kanji studying 'yojijukugo' (4-character compounds).
What 4 radicals are all these kanji based on?
How many of these kanji do you know the readings and meanings for?
(Feel free to answer in the comments about the kanji based on one of the radicals!)
N.B. This is taken from a screenshot of the Kanji Crush iPhone app, which is a 'match 3' game in which you can match based on radicals & readings - challenging fun, learn while you play! See in App Store
Flashcards can get a bit dull, so why not try out this HTML5 game which uses your knowledge, along with a little strategy & luck! Quizlet sets can be used in the game by appending the set ID number to the base url.
In this game your goal is to clear a vertical line in the 2-layer grid by matching tiles and making them disappear. Your opponent is aiming to clear a horizontal line. (N.B. since there are 2 layers, matching pairs for all exposed tiles are not always available).
Your opponent robot can be played by the computer, or your co-present friend in a pass'n'play game. Enjoy!
Particles are tricky, right? Try out this game to practice them - it's kind of bingo and you play against the computer or a friend (set to pass'n'play from the Settings page). You get 1 pt for every tile captured, 2 bonus pts for a block of 4 tiles, and 3 bonus pts for a bingo line (horizontal, vertical or diagonal)
Check out these new HTML5 games using Quizlet data that you can play right now on any device!
