Description:A simple Japanese vocabulary review tool.

This simple program is something I rigged up essentially as an experiment to see if it would help with my Japanese vocabulary (something I always had trouble with). It actually helped quite a bit while I was in Japanese class. It's basically a sort of automated flash card type thing targeted specifically at Japanese. It works by reading from "dictionary" text files and asking you to correctly identify certain words.

JVocab also offers a mode where you are scored for ordering words alphabetically correctly, which is what helped me learn the vertical order of the kana chart.
