Learn Hiragana and Katakana more easily(EN/PTBR)

Falarei em português no final!

Well, I'm learning Japanese through the Duolingo app, but I don't find it very practical nor effective to learn Hiragana/Katakana.

I think Memrise does it much better given the way it applies the teaching. So I came here to suggest to you guys to use it to learn Hiragana/Katakana :P

So I took a look about good courses of Hiragana/Katakana and I found these:

https://www.memrise.com/course/43833/hiragana-2/

https://www.memrise.com/course/43875/katakana-2/

I don't study using these ones, but by what I have seen in them, they look great, even better than the ones that I use to study Hiragana/Katakana.

And if you are wondering why I don't use those to study Hir/Kat, it is because I'm brazilian and I have them specifically in portuguese. Well, it doesn't change much, just some informations, but just for the sake of curiosity, here they are:

https://www.memrise.com/course/935911/japones-hiragana/

https://www.memrise.com/course/944934/japones-katakana/

Para os brasileiros que chegaram aqui, usem esse curso de cima caso ainda não sejam muito bons em inglês! Existem algumas sessões em especiais que podem ser acessadas por entrar na aba do curso que contém informações úteis falando dos alfabetos em questões, mas caso você saiba inglês, não haverá muita diferença entre fazer as duas primeiras opções que mostrei ou essas duas aí de cima :P

Thanks for your attentions and have fun with it! Ah, I'm sorry for my English, if I wrote something wrong xD

Speaking strictly for myself: I actually found the Duolingo distributed practice for the Kana very effective. I had never systematically studied Katakana - yes, I had my Quizlet flashcards but I didn't really spend enough time on them.

I am much better at Katakana due to Duolingo than I was at the end of my continuing-ed Japanese classes.

I'm getting in it now. I only took the Hiragana Duolingo "classes"(can it be called that? I don't know xD) and it was a little bit hard to me to memorize somethings, specially the words taught.

Anyway, is always good to have multiple fonts to study what we want to learn :P
