Fill in the blank

Asked 8 years ago

I think it would be helpful to have a fill-in-the-blank drill set, where you must type in the correct response.

You could have it question both the pronunciation and the definition of vocabulary and set it up the text box to type in hiragana, katakana (or both), or in standard English when appropriate.


For example, if you're shown:


You would type:

French person



If you were shown:


for pronunciation, you would type:


but for definition, you would type:
to remove


This might not be helpful for everyone, but I know it is helpful for me to have to spell things out or write things out.

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

This sounds like a great idea to write out the kana for an associated kanji word. I think it could cause a lot of problems when translating back and forth into English though. For instance, what if I typed in remove for 出す and got the answer wrong because I forgot the to? 出す also has many definitions other than remove that need to be taken into account to make this a reality.

This is a fantastic point. One way this could be resolved is do it the other direction. However, there's a lot of similar words and choosing the right one might be difficult. I know more interesting drill items are coming down the pipeline, so stay tuned!
