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 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.
