VocabBubble - A desktop vocabulary reminder program

What is it?

It sits next to your clock and pops up a bubble every minute to teach you a new Japanese word. Vocabulary for all levels is included, but you can make your own files, or delete some of the provided vocabulary files to study just your level. Email me if you need some help.

The word bubbles start automatically after one minute. You can force a word bubble to appear by right-clicking the icon.


Word codes

Each item contains one or more codes to show the kind of word it is. For example (n) and (P) in the picture above. The full list of codes is here.


To stop the popping noise when the balloon appears, turn off your Windows "Default beep" in sound settings. You can find this in the control panel under "Audio Devices and Sounds".
