One week ago I learned hiragana with the help of Tadashii Kanji Kakitori-kun. It is a Japanese Nintendo DS game that is made to teach you how to write Kanji. Though the main purpose is to teach Japanese children Kanji, there is also a mode where it shows how to write all hiragana and katakana. It is very good and helps you learn a lot. If it were for Americans then I think that there should be a mode where it quizes you without showing you what the character looks like, but it is for the Japanese not Americans. With its help I have learned hiragana and a little katakana so I recommend it!
