But I can conceive the possibility that this could create some friction. In fact it makes no sense whatsoever to postpone all Japanese study for after you finished RTK. Englishwith translations into Spanish and German. Not that this point rememberin here. Oct 28, David rated it it was amazing.

I’d say more than 3 hours each, but no more than 7. The author uses the so called “primitives”, simple images, which he puts in order to form the easy to remember story. I’m really amazed by akna book, and am looking forward to my work in Remember the Kanji.

I could also start searching by pronunciation in eg.

Also the order of RTK builds up from a base, I’d assume Kanji in textbooks are present in order of word usefulness regardless of complexity. Plus, if you already started RTK and understood the value of mnemonics, you’lll probably want to make a few. But just being able to read is incredibly useful.

Japanese Journey

This volume was co-authored by Reemmbering Sienko. In theory hiragana are enough to write any Japanese sentence. The book provides an easy and fast access to the kana.

All RTK and no remrmbering else make a Dudeist go something something. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Remembering the Kana : A Guide to Reading and Writing the Japanese Syllabaries in 3 Hours Each

I was only using this book to learn Katakana, and found the mnemonics unusable. Lo mejor para aprender en poco tiempo de manera muy efectiva dos de los alfabetos nipones. Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. I always recommend starting to use the kana immediately after learning them.


Remembering the Kana

Remembering the Hanzi by the same author is intended to teach the most frequent Hanzi to students of the Chinese language. Actually, even though I am a bit notorious for saying you don’t necessarily need to write kanjiI did learn kana in conjunction with writing them and, unlike Koichi-san whom I respect I do think it is a good idea to do so.

The method requires the student to invent their own stories to associate the keyword meaning with the written form. I wouldn’t trust the pronunciation guide if you don’t live in the States, though, as it is designed for US English.

All of them brilliant. In six short lessons of about twenty minutes, each of the two systems of “”kana”” writing are introduced in such a way that the absolute beginner can acquire fluency in writing in a fraction of the time normally devoted to the task. It feels kind of surreal. I think that’s a reasonable approach and if there’s a reason for doing it another way, the effect will be small.
