Overview

NOW Updated with Stroke Order!

For Beginners of the Japanese language. Includes FREE MP3s (download link found on the last page)

Learning kanji--those thousands of characters originally from Chinese--can be a rewarding experience. Japanese as a foreign language not dependant on the alphabet is often seen as exotic and "cool" to the English speaker. It certainly is, and kanji is at the heart of this appeal.

This ebook will guide you through the first and most important hundred kanji. In a very real sense more difficult kanji build from this foundation. Learning these first hundred kanji well will greatly help your Japanese in the future. Yes, this is true even if your main goal is conversational Japanese.

Learn the most common readings, useful example jukugo (kanji combinations), and understand usage with an example sentence for each kanji. Best of all, download the 100 sound files from our server and listen while you learn. We are also including a PDF version in the download so you can optionally study from your computer as well.

* Table of Contents
* 100 kanji
* FREE MP3s of all the readings and examples found in the ebook
* Mnemonic and helpful comments throughout
* Each kanji has multiple examples and an example sentence showing usage

If you like this ebook (and sound files), please write a review! We would deeply appreciate it and it will help us keep producing these Japanese language learning ebooks at dirt cheap prices. If you have any questions or problems please email or call us (found on the front of the ebook).

Arigatou--and here's to your Japanese!

    No content in sample!

    The sample is 9 pages, and there is not single kanji character in it, just TOC and few intro sentences. No reason to buy without seeing just a tiny bit more.

    great after learning Hiragana

    The book is full of on and kun readings in either hiragana on katakana. If you don't have a way to read them this book will be a little tough.good information and a card with the kana and hiragana will help

    Great Intro to Kanji!

    This is a great intro to Kanji! I just recently designed a product that was inspired by Japan (for my college class), and this book was very useful!
