How to learn new words

Aside from using the JET Japanese textbook, a Japanese-English dictionary, and enrolling in Japanese classes, you can also download a few free memorization programs on the web.  They essentially work like flashcards.  The difference is that the program was developed based on how you learn.  If you miss a word or character the program will come back to it precisely when you need it.  It’s a spooky brain science algorithm.

For Mac, we recommend Genius.

PC?  Try Mnemosyne.
