how to learn kanji?

Q: How can i learn kanji? thanks. – Aya

A:  There are lots of different ways and opinions on how to do this.  For me what I did was to get a basic kanji book and practice writing out the first 100.   It’s good to do this because what you find is that a lot of the more complicated kanji are just made up of combinations of the first 100 or so.  This makes things easier!

Then I’d recommend a Canon Wordtank or Electronic Dictionary.  Put any words you don’t know in the memory, then use the test function to flash up the kanji without the English or reading.

For more advanced learners, the popjisyo site is really great e.g. I use it to read the news in Japanese
