Kanji Flashcards for the JLPT N5 & JLPT N4

Comments

  1. nice work, going to use this as preparation! thanks for sharing

  2. Great job! Thank you so much for publishing this.

  3. this year I will do in JLPT in Indonesia. thanks

  4. tscolin says:

    Just finished with your list, thanks for the help!

  5. Anwesh says:

    Can you please make a mobile phone friendly list. Actually, i browse from my mobile and my phone does not support any other font except the latin alphabet. I would be happy if i could get a complete one page list of n5 kanji without seeing squares & boxes

    • Hello,

      I don’t understand well, if your phone only support the latin alphabet does it mean you want a list of Kanji without kanji ?

      Best Regards,
      Sophie Coureau

      • Anwesh says:

        No, I meant to say that whereever the kanji appears , instead of putting it as a text font, a small image (enough to be visible) can be replaced in that place. Though the page may become a bit longer, it will help many such people who browse by non-japanese devices. Although clicking on the kanji link gives an enlarged image, but doing it 104 times would be expensive.(mobile internet is much costlier, at least where i live).So, it would be beneficial.

  6. This site is really gud and everything is available here just by one click…..

  7. Thant Zin Myo says:

    It’s good not only for learners but also the student taking examination such as me!

  8. ありがとう~i’ll try my best~

  9. Krishna says:

    I’ve got jlpt N2 this year

  10. どうぞありがとう。
    Thanks for sharing this. Waiting for kanji of jlpt 3!

  11. harkaran lakhotra says:

    where could i get a .pdf format of the list like the one from the JLPT N5 ? is it under construction or made ?

    • Nicolas says:

      You can print the list as a pdf. There is a small description how to do this at the bottom of the page I think.

  12. I’m also after this list in the same format as the one you’re offering for N5, with each kanji on a separate page and boxes to be filled in for practice. I’m all up for paying for such a e-book if that’s the case.
