A clear and easy-to-use textbook to master the essential kanji characters for beginners.

The best selling Basic Kanji Book series are widely recognised as one of the most helpful steps into the wide world of the kanji alphabet. Containing the initial 250 basic kanji that cover days of the week, numbers, common actions and locations, Volume 1 easily breaks them down into chapters that introduce 10 of these kanji at a time, taking you through both stroke pattern and word examples of how they are used in Japanese, before testing you on their use with fun and curious reading and writing exercises. Each chapter is given an enjoyable and well laid-out theme, made to gradually build you into authentic use of everyday Japanese vocabulary by introducing relevant language habits and phrases.

Written by Chieko Kano, Yuri Shimizu and Hiroko Takenaka.

One of the Japanese language's most recognisable features is its use of 3 alphabets, with Hiragana and Katakana, covering basic readings for all words and sounds, and Kanji characters allowing words to be shortened and described via what each character depicts. Whilst the characters come in their 10,000's and even among native Japanese people it is a challenge to master the top few thousand most regularly used, several textbooks are released with handy memory exercises, hints and explanations to understand how each is constructed and used in various words and phrases, making both reading and writing easier to break down and comprehend. Here at japancentre.com we have a great choice of Kanji and Kana workbooks, that cover everything from vocabulary to writing order, for you to expand your language knowledge and use.
