Welcome to White Rabbit Japan!
This first book in the series is designed to teach beginner and early intermediate students the remaining 279 of 555 kanji characters commonly found on the Japanese Language Proficiency N5, N4 and N3 level exams. The two main parts of the volume are the kanji practice and the quiz sections. The kanji practice pages are clear with large letters, stroke order and readings. You will also find basic rules for writing kanji, the radicals on which kanji are based on, and the origin of kanji at the beginning of this book. Additionally, an appendix containing explanations on how to count various objects and living things can be found at the end of the book. By studying two pages per day, the books usually takes 3 months to complete (when used in the classroom, the book takes about 6 months to finish).What makes this series unique is that the pages include not only readings and vocabulary, but also helpful sample phrases and sentences with each kanji. This really sets the book apart as you can study basic conversation and grammar along with each new Chinese character. All of the sample sentences in this book are in plain styles, ready for natural conversation. English, traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese, Korean, Thai and Vietnamese translations are included, enabling students to study kanji independently. An answer key, index and removable appendix of kanji organized by chapter are also included for easy reference and review.Pages: 206Language: Japanese with English, traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese, Korean, Thai and Vietnamese translations
