Perhaps it would be useful to complete beginners who would like to divine meaning from written Japanese text without needing to speak the language, and my professor told me that it allowed him to learn to recognise a great number remebering Japanese characters in a very short period of time. You feel powerful seeing the progress and feel motivated to keep going further. I actually rememberinng read the entire thing, and I don’t think I’m even going to go through rememberjng book in detail anytime soon, but only because I realized that the kanji learning system I have been using WaniKani is partially based on this method, and is actually a little more complete, as it takes you though pronunciations and vocabulary as well, which this book ignores altogether.
But I love this method of learning kanji.
Remembering the Kanji 1 : James W. Heisig :
W.eisig a good day, I often learned almost kanji, with high levels of retention. Other than that they are most useful, beautiful books which might just end up changing my life and allow me to again use the microwave. In the begining the method seems to be weird but it does work! Some people argue they are better at drilling through the Kanji instead of using Heisig method.
The basic primitives are introduced as needed throughout the book. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. I will continue on with the series, just to see what it’s about. It’s been over a year since I’ve used this book and I remember not a single story.
Also, I try not to think about how many there are and how overwhelming it is. Also, the words used to describe various kanji are slightly different in this book than what I’ve seen in WaniKani, I actually haven’t read the entire thing, and I don’t think I’m even going to go through this book in detail anytime soon, but w.heisog because I realized that the kanji learning system I have been using WaniKani is partially rememgering on this method, and is actually a little more complete, as it takes you though pronunciations and ww.heisig as well, which this book ignores altogether.
The sixth edition includes the corrections for all the current errataas well as additional kanji. The additional kanji has been included rememberinb response to the changes to the “general use” kanji list in December Although by no means is it a scientific study, I know of several people who have had great success with this book, including myself.

Volume 2 of each book was published in early But I don’t see ‘learning Japanese’ as one geneal skill, but as a set of particular skills, and learning the kanji is simply of these particular skills. And for that I’m incredibly grateful. Since even many native Japanese are sometimes unclear as to how to pronounce unusual kanji combinations they might come across, this is also a good call.
And those hints are, for most of the time, sooo sooo sooo etymologically incorrect. Therefore it cannot be used on its own which is a big disadvantage.
Many of the “primitive elements,” or building blocks, used in the drawing of the characters also serve to indicate the “Chinese reading” that particular kanji use, chiefly in compound terms. I mean, they and especially their number are really overwhelming, but I’m now confident enough to be able to count the strokes and just, well, look it up.
The long-term effect is that you can easily differentiate between different Kanji, and hence reading them later and studying them thoroughly as they come in text won’t be impossible.

Before you start this book make sure you’re using the 6th edition not the 4th, because that one has a couple errors one or two keywords were repeated, another had the wrong Kanji, and on top of that it’s not the full Kanji but From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Now we are talking. If you’re not going to commit to learning all the kanji in this book, you may want to start out with Basic Kanji instead – that is a much more standard way to learn the kanji.
Heisig changed that for me. Jul 01, Naukhel rated it it was ok Shelves: By making this assumption, Heisig can arrange the order of kanji to be learned according to ease, rather than according to frequency or grade level. I sighed for a week and then just ran with this explanation and supposed that everything I read on advertisements while idly riding the train, or on various shop hoardings while walking around the city, every piece of writing I saw concerned the labyrinthine subject of dendrology.
I ended up confusing everything and not being able to memorize more than a couple of kanji each day. Dec 28, Olena Rosul rated it it was amazing Shelves: The result of finishing the book? I would also recommend doing this book simultaneously with other Japanese reading because seeing the Kanji used in real texts reinforces their meanings and helps you add actual vocabulary to cement them even further in your memory.
When am I going to learn the readings of each character?! If not, that’s okay too; everyone has their own learning style.
I think what it did was take away my fear of the kanji. More than anything else, I believe this book gives the Japanese language learner the confidence to tackle any kanji.
