The method that's helped thousands in the U.S. and Japan learn Japanese successfully.

The Japanese language has three basic writing systems, kanji (Chinese characters) and hiragana, and katakana--two phonetic sets of characters. This handy book teaches you a new mnemonics-based method to read and write the 430 highest-frequency kanji characters. Along with its sister book: Japanese Hiragana and Katakana for Beginners it provides a complete introduction to written Japanese.

Japanese Kanji for Beginners contains everything you need to learn the kanji characters required for the Advanced Placement Japanese Language and Culture Exam. It is designed for use by high school or college students as well as independent learners. The kanji learned in this book closely adhere to those introduced in every major Japanese language textbook.

Key features of Japanese Kanji for Beginners include:

  • The 430 highest-frequency kanji characters
  • 44 simple, easy-to-follow lessons
  • Concise information on kanji elements, readings and pronunciations
  • Extensive exercises, drills, and writing practice
  • Free CD-ROM with printable flash cards, practice quizzes and extra exercises

As a bonus--the free CD-ROM inside the kanji book contains a set of printable kanji flash cards to assist learners in reviewing and memorizing the kanji in the book. It also contains sample vocabulary quizzes in a multiple-choice format similar to those in the AP exam, as well as additional exercises that further reinforce the newly learned kanji.
