Learn how to form and use kanji from its simplest beginnings.

More than simply offering the initial kanji and vocabulary to learn and practice, this supplementary kanji textbook of the popular and comprehensive Minna no Nihongo series of Japanese study, opens you up to understanding both the origins and structure of kanji characters, to better implement their usage and wider comprehension. Taking you through the ideas behind kanji radicals, stroke order and readings, this textbook focuses quite heavily at the start on charming illustrations to introduce you to the general way kanji are used to convey certain meanings in different words and how they are broken down or even combined to form new different words and definitions. With clear exercises that take you step-by-step through varied tasks and practice, you get a frequent chance to repeat and review everything you learn, with initial explanations in English setting you up to tackle the passages of Japanese text at the end of the book. A total of around 220 kanji characters and over 350 words to pick up make this a welcoming but thorough learning resource, that is perfect practice for up to N4 level Japanese and really sets you up to expand your kanji and Japanese knowledge further.

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.
