KANJI.ES is a freeware software for Nintendo DS. KANJI.ES is designed so you can practice the 80 basic kanji with Nintendo DS.

User guide

After selecting the language of the flashcard lesson we will select. There are 4 lessons of 20 kanji each. The flashcard is painted on the screen higher (only translation and reading) leaving the bottom paint.

If you do not know how to write the kanji can press the "SHOW" and we show, if we clear the display "CLEAR".

Finally, if we are satisfied and believe that we went well KANJI will press "GOOD", this will make the flashcard is marked as learned and not ask again during that session. Should mark it as "BAD" is will ask at the end.

The lesson is over when we marked all the flashcard as "GOOD" giving to understand that we know as those 20 kanji and write.

KANJI.ES not recognize anything, this means that no one differentiate a kanji Picasso painting. It is an educational software, there are no scores.
