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 Hiragana and so much more.

YouTube

Youtube is a great resource for finding videos on learning Kanji. At this stage in your studies learning tips and tricks from videos and learning from other's experiences can help you greatly in your own studies. You may also discover others who are studying at your same level within the YouTube community.

Example:

Online Games

Online games are great for learning Kanji and also for reviewing and testing yourself on what you've studied. They are also a fun way to relax and still learn when you don't quite feel like spending time over a workbook or when you physically can't be where your workbooks are.

Helpful Books

Japanese Learning books and workbooks are valuable in progressing your studies. You can find Kanji workbooks at your local bookstore. They are incredibly helpful in teaching you how to remember, pronounce, and write Kanji. Kanji is the more difficult of the 3 Kana to learn and having a workbook could really make a difference in your understanding of it. If you're unable to find Kanji workbooks locally here are a few below you may find useful that you can get online.

Practice and Repetition

Kanji is the most difficult of the 3 Japanese Kana to learn. Mainly because of the complexity of the characters and the overwhelming numbers of Kanji characters there are. Don't be overwhelmed by the amount of Kanji find the best resource you can and pace yourself, learn a specified number of characters per week and only move on when you're sure you've got them memorized.

I hope this resource guild helped steer you in the right direction for good places to learn Kanji and further your Japanese language studies. You've already gotten this far, there's no going back now!
