Help with learning.

I'm learning hiragana and katakana and I'm just wondering what are the most effective ways to learn the two? I also don't quite understand how the questions work and I would be very great full if someone Gould give me some assistance with figuring it out thankyou :)

    I learnt hiragana and katakana by doodling their tables regularly when I was bored in French class at school, lol. :P
    I recommend finding a picture of the tables and putting it somewhere you'll see regularly, like your desktop background. Then, whenever you're bored somewhere and have a chance to doodle, try writing out as much of the tables as you can remember.

    There are some helpful websites too though. These should hopefully speed things up a little.

    These two pages teach the kana using mnemonics:

    This website is probably the best, very simple memory game for testing your kana recognition skills.

    The RealKana website might indeed be the best for training. When I learned the phonetic alphabets, I'd fill a paper sheet row with each character and move on to the next. Besides the RealKana website provided by mog86uk, which is really helpful, there's also to practise the Kana. With some practise you'll get it.

    For learning kana, that's a nice webpage you've found. Very simple and effective. I like the options it gives, like hiragana<->katakana.
    What I really like about RealKana, though, is the option for different types of fonts -- It would be interesting if JCJP had that feature too.
