Reviewing the Kanji

Reviewing the Kanji
New in the Study pages: Example Words!8 April 2014 You can now see a selection of "priority" entries from JMdict (Japanese-Multilingual Dictionary) on any given character's Study page. You can also use the shortcut key D to view a selection of sample words during flashcard reviews (note these aren't optimized for mobile display, yet). I remember when I was going through RTK, I spent a lot of time looking up the characters in the Kanji Learner's Dictionary (KKLD). Having example words helps a lot to understand why Heisig chose certain english keywords, and it helps you make better mnemonics that more accurately capture the particular meaning, or common use of the character.

漢字学習 ・ Studying Kanji|long island sound 今度は僕の漢字能力検定を対象にしている勉強の仕方について書きたいと思います。全くつまらないことでとても面白く読まれそうもないけど、誰かの役に立てるかもしれないし、僕にとってとても身近なことなのでちゃんとこの日記で筆記したいです。こんな風に勉強して、500字位しか知らなかった、それに音訓の事等把握していなかった、初心者の頃から、4箇月という僅かな時間で日本語能力試験1級に合格できるようになりました。 This time I've decided to write about the methods I use in studying for the Kanji Kentei. Granted it's not a very interesting topic, but there's a chance it might prove useful to some readers, and anyway considering the amount of time I spend doing it in a day it's quite a familiar subject so I want to make sure to record it here. Using this method I was able to go from knowing a paltry 500 or so characters (although at the time I didn't understand the concept of On-Kun readings), to a level capable of passing the JLPT1 in a mere 4 months.

Tumbleweed's Resources for Learning Japanese Okay, here's a familiar scenario... For whatever reason, you've taken up the study of the Japanese language. You've gone through a couple of the beginner's level books, you've run through a couple of basic tutorial programs, you've even taken a couple of classes someplace. Then you decide to try out your new knowledge. You try talking to native speakers, you try to watch an unsubtitled movie or read a magazine.
