Learn 162 Kanji through visuals and Haiku! which are likely to appear in the JLPT N5 (the first Japanese Language Proficiency Test) as well as some useful Kanji for travelling, food & basics. Now including the Kanji Stroke order!
Kanji is the last of the three Japanese writing systems to learn and should be studied after the Hiragana & Katakana. You may know it as the beautiful characters used in calligraphy. It is the most complex with 1,000s of characters, each of which often has different meanings and readings. It’s a challenge but super interesting & useful.
This book is aimed as a beginner introduction to spark the confidence to start studying Kanji and discover a method that can be utilized to learn even more! Our method works by breaking each Kanji character down into simpler bite-sized pieces (called radicals) and using Haiku structured stories as mnemonics to help remember how they connect together.
Hai! Japanese is a passion project by learners (Lewis & Charlotte) for learners. We know all too well how confusing it can be to study this new language. We have taken the things we wish we knew when we started out ourselves and tried to convey them in a more intuitive, friendly and visually easy to understand manner. We hope you like it and it helps with your studies! To learn more about our Kanji book project read our blog here
