Intuition is a great thing when it comes to kanji learning.

After about kanji learned in the Heisig method, I was able to look at a completely unknown kanji for the first time, understand how to write it,deconstruct the radicals and search about it in a dictionary. Although it required tremendous dedication from me because it got tedious as time went on especially 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, janji on top of that it’s not the full Kanji but No trivia or quizzes yet.

It definitely gave me more confidence when tackling Kanji but it didn’t actually teach Kanji at all. Winter will soon be on its way, and my porridge oats will not warm themselves Volume II presents the official readings of the kanji introduced in Volume I.

I ended up confusing everything and not being able to memorize more than a couple of kanji each day. 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 can’t wait to finish reviewing what I already know and jump into new kanji.


I haven’t thought this all the way through and I have never even broken one or both of my legs and even I can see the holes in this analogy are markedly obvious if pondered for even the briefest of moments. I actually prefer learning the kanji, the meaning, hte the pronunciation all together, and it seems to work well that way for my brain.

For example, the order in which the characters are learned differs from “the most frequent and important first”, which is a standard in many courses. Second, there is no real order here. The book helped get me over the language-learning thw and helped me learn considerably more kanji in a much shorter period of time than I had ever learned before.

I learned hiragana like this in a couple of shifts at the supermarket, also benefiting from unwitting kanji review practice every time someone bought a bunch of bananas Fast forward a year and I find myself living in Japan if you want to know the full story please read my blog.

I strongly believe I never would have learned kanji without this book. God knows I would’ve stopped after Kanji had I gone through the drilling method. Heisig book offered me a significantly great push towards learning the Japanese language.

Jul 22, bhen adrecra rated it really liked it. Stipend, Income, Salary, Profit, Earnings, among other examples. W.heisig best method if you want to start learning Japanese without feeling like you’re under siege. Some opponents s of learning the meanings separate from the readings like to claim that Japanese themselves do it all at once too, but they don’t: It’s a lot of work and Heisig does not hide that fact.


But I love this method of learning kanji.

This jamws was last edited on 28 Decemberat I would write and write but within days of practicing one Kanji, it would slip out of my brain and onto a squishy mass on the floor. By learning one of the kanji that uses such a “signal primitive,” one can learn the entire group at the same time. This has the best of both worlds, being etymologically correct according to tradition and Kanji were made by the Chinese after allwhile taking into account the mnemonic aspect much applauded by certain readerships.

I don’t recommend using any of the stories underneath though.

The book is mainly focused on the Chinese readings, however one chapter does suggest a mnemonic device for learning the Japanese readings.

Again, I owe this book a lot for helping me tremendously in my studies. The first part is in the style of Volume I, where the writing and keywords are learned. The sixth edition includes the corrections for all the current errataas well as additional kanji.
