Shelves: japanese , language-learning , textbooks Over the course of this book I've come to believe that Heisig's approach to learning Kanji is fairly misguided. I mostly kept with it because of inertia I already had the flash cards, after all , but in reality I'd much rather have learned them "in context" - in sentences, in phrases, etc. These compounds are basically meaningless in isolation, and I'm not sure studying them like this without even any of the etymological reasons is helpful at all, it's definitely learning them "the hard way". Behind the notorious inconsistencies in the way the Japanese language has come to pronounce the characters it received from China lie several coherent patterns. Identifying these patterns and arranging them in logical order can reduce dramatically the amount of time spent in the brute memorisation of sounds unrelated to written forms. Many of th Following the first volume of Remembering the Kanji, the present work provides students with helpful tools for learning the pronunciation of the kanji. Many of the "primitive elements," or building blocks, used in the drawing of the characters also serve to indicate the "Chinese reading" that particular kanji use, chiefly in compound terms. By learning one of the kanji that uses such a "signal primitive," one can learn the entire group at the same time.

Kanji Books

Of course, there were still numerous kanji outside the list that contin- ued to be used in place names, or that appeared in books published before the educational reforms and were impractical to update. Over the past twenty years many of these exiled characters have migrated back into daily use. Advertisers often prefer the compactness and precision of older kanji to their phonetic equivalents. And popular novelists, as always, cling tenacious- ly to their cache of little-known glyphs as a mark of the trade.

The idea behind the present book was to offer a third choice: supple- mentary kanji to lay a solid basis for contemporary Japanese. In addition to the method of selection explained in Dr.

Of the many people who assisted me in this project, I would like par- ticularly to thank Ronald D. First, it is dismissed as nonsense. Finally, it is seen to be important, but not really anything new. In this connection, I must admit I am of two minds about Remem- bering the Kanji and its companion volumes.

Its reception by students of the Japanese language across the world has been as much a surprise to me as to the publishers, the Japan Publi- cations Trading Company. From the start I was convinced that if there was anything important in the method, it surely was noth- ing new. All I had done, after all, was to put some semblance of order into what students of the kanji had always done: trick their minds into making easily forgettable shapes more memorable.

The sales of the books, as well as scores of letters from readers, has convinced me that this is in fact the case. On the one hand, the method seems to have proved itself a natural one suited to large number of students motivated to study the kanji on their own. On the other, it remains virtually useless for classroom instruction. For one who does not know from experience the question behind the method, the answer—even if it works—makes no sense.

Whatever the merits of Remembering the Kanji as a learning tool, then, its demerits as a teach- ing tool are beyond redemption.

This is probably for the best. To force the expectations of the textbook on the method would probably only end up frustrating everyone—teachers and students.

The misprints that had slipped in along the way, thanks again to alert readers, have been periodically corrected in later printings. The request always seemed reasonable enough.
