For the first time, since learning Japanese, I have spent a conciderable amount of time to study kanji. Especially recognition and writing. So far I'm mostly testing and using the app Japanese Kanji Study by Chase Colburn. It is a superb tool for studying so far, here is a list of kanji that I learned to recognize and write within about one week:

Before using this app I was only able to recognize a few kanji that I stumbled upon in my text books like and in terms of writing... I was not able to. Being able to write a set of kanji with correct stroke order and knowing the meaning and maybe even reading feels absolutely amazing. I can't wait to study more and get even better.

When I started using this app I set the "study type" to "Japanese school grade levels" which delivers new kanji in a similar order how schools in Japan would introduce them to their students. I thought this would be a good way to start but since I also want to pass JLPT tests along the way I switched the setting to "JLPT levels", which then started introducing relevant kanji for JLPT N5.

This is no sponsored post, I genuinely like the app and can recommend it to all people studying Japanese/kanjis. So far I'm happy with the progress I made and I excited where I will be in about one year using this and many other apps/tools. I'll keep you updated.
