Japanese Kanji Learning: Short-Cuts to Rapid Mastery (Part 2)

Written by Stephen Munday

Continued from page 1

The downside is that, unlike Heisig in particular, this method will not allow you to even dream about masteringrepparttar 1,945 joyou kanji: You might breeze through allrepparttar 146403 kanji in this book, but you will still be only just over half-way there. And without Rowley's illustrative skill, you will find it difficult to userepparttar 146404 same method to press on and masterrepparttar 146405 rest.

This is a serious weakness compared torepparttar 146406 other methods mentioned in Part 1. Their advantage is not just that they take you through at least allrepparttar 146407 joyou kanji, but that they also give you a method which you can continue to use for any obscure kanji you come across inrepparttar 146408 future.

So, if you are a visual learner and you are thinking about using Kanji Pict-O-Graphix as your main kanji learning tool, you will probably want to consider whether you are serious enough to want learn more than 1,000 kanji before you get started. However, if you are simply thinking of using this approach as an extra additional resource, there is very little you can say to fault this volume.

Atrepparttar 146409 end ofrepparttar 146410 day, it still comes down to your needs and your preferred learning method: Will you opt for Heisig or Henshall's mnemonics, Rowley's visual approach or will you be a pioneer and create your own unique method? The choice is yours, but grinding, rote kanji memorization does not have to be your fate any more.
