Mnemonics are memory tricks that use humor or a memorable personal connection to help you fix and break associations so your brain has no choice but to remember.

Each screen presents a Katakana character along with a mnemonic clue and audio clip. Read the clue, listen to the clip and move on to the next one. The alternating bold colors will 'reset' your brain so you start fresh with each symbol, allowing you to learn auto-magically.

Learning Japanese may seem like an impossible task but with Dr. Moku you will be amazed at your ability to learn and recall.

**This Free version contains all above features but has a limited number of Katakana screens, the full version covers the entire syllabary **
