My name is Saren Sakurai. My son and I have been studying Japanese for a couple of years together. He is now in the 1st grade and just beginning to learn kanji (Chinese characters). We've been brainstorming a new way to set up his flash cards and use games to extend the time we spend memorizing characters.
We recently collected our ideas into a project we call Kanjilicious. It's going to be a mobile app that is part flash card system and part casual game played with friends. We think it will really help students of all ages.
Our project is up on Kickstarter, so we have a video about it here: http://bit.ly/kanjikick
I wonder if you wouldn't mind taking a look? We'd love to know what you think? Let's talk about it.
