About this app

Everybody learns differently and Visual Learners often struggle with new languages.

Learn to read, write and speak 🇯🇵 Japanese Hiragana & Katakana, 🇰🇷 Korean Hangul in record time with Dr. Moku's animated flashcards. Come back to practice with quizzes or to look up a character's sound or shape in seconds.

How will Dr. Moku work for you?

✅ Unforgettable animated stories and characters.

✅ Practice Modes: Reading, Listening, and Combo quiz modes help you brush up when needed.

Dr. Moku's teaching method is perfect for complete beginners to learn Japanese and Korean Hangul without rote memorization.

Mnemonics are memory tricks that help you remember and retrieve abstract concepts. By focussing on Dr. Moku's mnemonic clues, audio, and imagery, your will brain will auto-magically associate the shape of the character with the sound.

Learn the Japanese alphabets (Hiragana and Katakana) on your own and in record time. Master the Korean alphabet (Hangul) quickly and slickly with minimal effort.

Don’t you hate when companies claim to make learning fun?

There really is nothing "fun" about learning languages.

There’s definitely satisfaction in impressing friends, passing exams, and using your language skills in the real world but the FUN comes in the time you SAVE by finding the right learning method.

Dr. Moku strives to make learning languages painless and effective so you have more time to create your own fun.

Studying sucks. Memorization stinks. Mnemonics work.

The first Dr. Moku app was published way back in 2010, it was primitive and clunky but it helped tens of thousands of people to learn Hiragana and Katakana without the pain of rote memorization.

This new app is the start of a whole new chapter. The vision is to gradually add new languages and subjects using the same mnemonic techniques.

Stick around, it's going to be fun!

Very very promising! I can tell this is an early release so I'm keeping that in mind. The app lags a lot, especially when you first open it as I'm assuming it's downloading the necessary content. Might be better if it just took a little longer to load, I thought the app was broken for a minute. I love the varied content while studying, it's cool how it switches between vocab and quizzes. But some of the audio definitely did not match up with any options. Will surely come back to see the updates.

I had purchased the bundle for IOS but needed it for an android unit. It is a helpful app, however, I did not realized that you have to pay for each part of the course which I feel is a rip off.. The buy function gave the impression that you were purchasing access to all content. With the precious versions, you got the bundle of 3 courses for one low price. In addition, there is a long lag time between screens and I could not get any sound. I will not be spending any more money on this app. Any improvements in the learning program are not worth the higher price.

Hello Marilynn, thanks for the feedback. You can choose to purchase all content at a greatly reduced price instead of individual packs, I think I need to rework that section. Would you mind mailing me at info@drmoku.com to help me refine the other areas you mentioned? Do you hear no sound only in the videos or throughout the entire app? Thanks

Honestly Disappointed 😞 ! This version is wanky and very slow. Its not as easy as the older version (D. Maku HIRAGANA & KATAKANA ) & not worth the buy. The concept is good, however I believe you should add alot of features from the older version that made it fun to this version. Having to click around and trying to decipher the correct pronunciations or letters is a hassle. What happened to the SOUND ?
