LexiKAN Description

LexiKAN Free Download.

LexiKAN is a powerful computer program designed to help you learn to read and write Japanese kanji, hiragana, and katakana. The program contains all 1,985 Jouyou kanji. Using the LexiKAN kanji drawing tool, you can practice writing each character with the mouse using a calligraphy-like drawing system that provides stroke-by-stroke feedback on the correct placement and order of your strokes. You can adjust the drawing and feedback options, such as drawing style, stroke-order enforcement, feedback timing, and required precision, in order to tailor the system's response to your learning style.

In the reading flashcard mode, you can practice recognition of kanji characters using a Multiple Choice or Fill-in-the-Blank 'Quiz Mode'. Reading and writing practice modes are also available for hiragana and katakana. With the kanji drawing tool, look up characters in the Jouyou kanji database using character recognition, or search traditionally by on/kun reading or English meaning.

LexiKAN also supports the EDICT Japanese-English electronic dictionary file. With the file downloaded from the LexiKAN website, the program has access to over 100,000 entries for use as a searchable electronic dictionary. Lookup any Japanese word using kanji, reading, or English meaning, and save it as a compound flashcard for use in the quiz modes.

Flashcards are arranged in LexiKAN using Word Groups which can be created manually, imported, downloaded for free from the LexiKAN website, or generated automatically by the program using the LexiKAN Flashcard Builder tool. Use this wizard-style dialog to build a complete customized syllabus containing both kanji and related compound vocabulary.

The Flashcard Builder will instantly create kanji flashcards based on grade level or using the index numbers in one of ten popular kanji reference books. With the EDICT file installed, it will also create related compound vocabulary words containing the kanji in each Word Group.
