How does MochiMochi help you learn Kanji better?

Have you ever wondered how MochiMochi helps you memorize Kanji better? It’s not magic, just science. Let’s find out now!

1. How does our brain memorize and forget a Kanji?

While learning Kanji takes up an unbelievable amount of time and effort, you might forget them in the blink of an eye.


The research of Hermann Ebbinghaus in 1884 shows that you will fail to recall 70% of what you learned if you do not revise it within 24 hours. Even if you could run through your new knowledge in the mentioned timeframe, reviewing right after learning barely enhances your memory.

According to the research, the most effective time to revise is when your brain is about to forget. By learning at that specific moment, you can improve your memory by ten times.

Long story short, when it comes to memorizing Kanji better, timing is the key.

2. MochiMochi suggests your right time to learn Kanji

The Golden Time

The time you are about to forget what you learned, is called “The Golden time”.

Based on your learning history, MochiMochi will calculate the golden time to review your Kanji and words. At that specific time, the App reminds you to run through what you learned to maximize learning efficiency. 

Instead of wasting a lot of time revising, you only need to follow the learning process that MochiMochi personalized for you.

5 levels of memorization

MochiMochi analyzes your learning history, for example: how hard you find a Kanji, how fast you can recall it, how accurate were your answers, etc., to divide your Kanji into five levels:

  • Level 1: Forget after 24 hours without revising
  • Level 2: Forget after 7 days without revising
  • Level 3 (short-term memory): Forget after 1 month without revising
  • Level 4: Forget after 3 months without revising
  • Level 5 (long-term memory): Forget after 6 months without revising

Thanks to this system, you could spend less time in the Kanji you already knew and have more time to invest in the one you find difficult to remember.
