Learning Kanji[edit]

The Japanese Proficiency test is not a good example of a test to track skill with kanji. Ability to recognize kanji, select kanji and read words that included kanji is required but ability to write kanji is not tested at all. Also kanji is only one of the aspects covered. For kanji specifically the Kanji Kantei is much more approprate. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanji_kentei (The preceding unsigned comment was added by 86.29.250.107 (talkcontribs) 18:16, 26 February 2008)


I would suggest this being part of later lessons rather than an introduction. Kanji are far harder to learn in my opinion, I can barely remember the one they showed me in school for eternity. --ArchabacteriaNematoda 03:23, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

Oh, this page definitely needs some work. Kanji is the hardest part to learn.--StalinUpstaged 10:55, 4 November 2009 (UTC)


JPLT section needs updating: there are now 5 levels, and the jouyou kanji has 2136 characters. I agree kanji is hard, but its the most important part, learning it while the language is still new will prevent having to reassociate vocabulary already learned in hiragana.
