Memrise

Memrise.com Is a fantastic resource for learning Katakana. Their courses are free (but a premium membership is an option) and the community is full of people who are on your same level or higher and would love to help you. Memrise also helps you actually memorize what you learn by use of repetition, flashcards, and paying attention to what answers you get wrong so it can help you get them right.

There are so many courses on memrise that you can't go wrong and the opportunity to make friends who can also help you makes this a valuable resource for learning Katakana and so much more.

There is also the opportunity to find others who are interested in learning Katakana within the YouTube community as well as discovering more YouTube videos centered around learning Japanese.

Games are a good and fun way to learn and practice when you don't feel like studying using other methods or don't have time to dedicate to spending time over a workbook.
