Research — Radical Tunes

Music and rhythm are powerful tools that can be employed to enhance learning and memory. While games are commonly utilized to aid in second language acquisition, few have explored the implications of sound on learner's ability to draw and remember logographic characters (such as those in Chinese hanzi, Japanese kanji and Korean hanja). Radical Tunes, a kanji drawing music game, was created to explore the impacts of incorporating music on players' ability to retain meaning and stoke order of Japanese kanji.
