Mastering Japanese Kanji

Reduce the time and effort needed to read Japanese. This new book provides an enjoyable and effective way to learn 200 of the most important Japanese characters. It does so using a two-step method. First, kanji are broken into parts that are given meanings based on how they look. These parts are then pulled together in a fanciful drawing, and connected with the kanji's meaning using an imaginative, often humorous, story. The story and drawing, together with an innovative pronunciation strategy, will enable you to quickly master both the meaning and pronunciation of each character. Key features of this book include: unique, specially-designed drawings and entertaining stories that help the reader learn more quickly; sample sentences, along with common words and compounds, that expand vocabulary by showing each kanji used in context; stroke-order diagrams that show the correct way to write each character; and, chapter and cumulative review exercises that help ensure mastery of what you've learned. Bonus CD-ROM includes stroke-order animations and pronunciations for all kanji, compounds, and sample sentences.
