The Reading Tutor was designed to help JFL/JSL learners improve their reading skills in Japanese. This system was developed specifically to help learners study written Japanese at their own pace, in their own way.
Here’s what is in the toolbox to help you start reading Japanese or improve the skills you already have.
– Japanese-Japanese Dictionary Tool
Just click on the button marked “JP->JP” and you’ll find all the words with an explanation in Japanese, their English equivalents, and furigana.
– Japanese-English Dictionary Tool
Click on the button marked “JP->EN” and you’ll find all the words with an explanation in English, their English equivalents, and furigana.
– Vocabulary Level Checker
Click on “Vocabulary” and all the words in a text will be analyzed according to their level of difficulty. These levels correspond to the 4 levels in the Japanese Language Proficiency Test.
– Kanji Level Checker
Click on “KANJI” and the Kanji (characters) that appear in the text will be analyzed according to their level on the Japanese Language Proficiency Test.
