1. What is Kanji?
Kanji is the kanji used in the Japanese writing system along with Hiragana and Katakana. Learning Kanji for beginner that Japanese people are using now include Chinese characters imported from China and Chinese characters created by the Japanese.
2. Why learn Kanji?
Japanese has many homophones but different meanings, it is necessary to rely on Kanji to determine the meaning of the word.
Currently in Japan, the names of stations, shops or signs are mostly written in Kanji, so learning Kanji is essential if you want to travel or live in Japan.
Studying well Kanji, you will be able to read and translate Japanese documents well, because Kanji accounts for 70% of the content of Japanese articles or documents.
Although necessary, learning kanji for beginners is not easy at all. Today, I would like to share some effective ways to learn Kanji drawn by myself after studying Kanji
3. Learning with software
If you've ever learned about effective Learning Kanji for beginners methods, you probably already know the flashcard method. I have tried this method before, and from my personal perspective it is quite boring and ineffective for me.
Instead, I choose to study on the phone, the web is both fun and convenient. If you are proficient in technology, you will easily find effective Kanji learning apps on your phone. If you are not proficient in technology, you can use it directly on the website. When I found out, I know this product is both supported on mobile applications and has a convenient web version that has been researched and built by a team of experts from countries, Asian countries and throughout Asia. u. The most interesting point in this Japanese language learning software is that you can study, entertain and specially take the free trial exam. You are curious, but you can try it right now: Learn Japanese Kanji
4. Learning and associating
Since Kanji is a hieroglyph, the way to learn Chinese characters in Japanese is also interesting. Hieroglyphs are words of the ancients seeing things and things and rewriting them, describing them in their own way of thinking and imagination. Therefore, one of the tips for learning Kanji for beginners is to imagine and compare Kanji according to things and phenomena in real life. This way the kanji will be imprinted more deeply in your brain than just learning rote as you normally do. There are quite a few good books to help you supplement your Kanji learning by this association: "Remember the Kanji" by James Heisig or "Kanji Pict-O-Graphix" by Michael Rowley.
I like to learn new languages. However, for traditional classes and tutorials, they are costly and boring, and I lack of opportunities to practice. For internet learning, it lacks of motivation which keeps me learning the new language. Makes me so headache~~~
Recently used an app called FYLP and it helps me find a language partner.
As I want to learn Japanese, I have been matched with a Japanese language partner, and we keep chatting using the app. At first, we use English to chat. As we are more familiar with each other, as she keeps teaching me new words and structures, we start using more and more Japanese to communicate. We always share our daily life with each other. I can learn Japanese in a funny and effective way through this app as Japanese immerses in our communication. I do not need to memorize hardly.
I can know more about Japanese culture too.
And I can make more foreign friends through this app too~~~
Hola a todos!
Me gustaría sugerirle a los miembros de este foro una nueva sección llamada "Right and Wrong", en donde cada participante que postee comparta un poco de sí mismo; gustos, anécdotas, sueños, etc. con el fin de conocernos más y a la vez poder practicar o mejorar nuestro aprendizaje en el idioma dado. En este caso, lo he abierto para "Español - Inglés", ya que soy nativo del idioma Español y estoy aprendiendo Inglés. La mecánica es la siguiente... si el idioma nativo del participante es Español, posteará en dicho idioma y a continuación lo hará en Inglés dentro del mismo post, pero SIN la ayuda de traductores; la idea es que con su propio conocimiento y la ayuda de los demás vaya comprendiendo y adquiriendo práctica. Podrá dejar igual y resaltar en negrita lo que no sabe cómo escribir. El compañero del foro que responda para CORREGIR lo hará poniendo ejemplos, para que todos podamos entender y aprender. Por supuesto que si lo que escribió en el idioma que cree saber dominar no lo hizo bien, también lo podrá corregir el que domine ese idioma.
Como yo lo sugerí, yo empezaré.
PS.- El nombre de la nueva sección queda abierto a nuevas sugerencias.
I'd like to propose to all members of this forum a new section called "Right and Wrong", where every participant who post in here, do that to share a bit about himself; gustos, anécdotas, sueños, etc. to pursue the goal of knowing each other a little bit more and also practice or improve the learning of the wanted language. In this case, I started for "Spanish - English", since I'm a Spanish language native and I'm learning English. La mecánica es la siguiente... If the native language of the participant is Spanish, he will post in that language and then he will do in English dentro del mismo post, but WITHOUT the help of translaters; the real purpose is that he can add comprensión and practice by his own knowledge and the guiding help of the members. Whatever he don't know how to write podrá dejar igual y resaltar en negrita. The participant who answer to CORREGIR will do that offering some examples, so all the people can understand and learn. Of course if the writed post suposedly right is not, it will be corregido as well.
As I mentioned this post, I shall start.
PS.- The new section name is open to new suggestions.
