I always get asked questions on what to use to study Japanese and I always recommend Kanji gold as a great program to learn kanji with. But people don't use it long enough to really get to know why it's sooo good. So I decided to write up a little faq to let you know why it's what I recommend.
1. Get the program here.
2. Once you've installed it, you'll see something like this:
I've labelled and written important things in regards to it all on the image .
3. Pop Kanji: It shows kanji in a flash card like way. Great if you want to have something running in the back ground while you do your business and have it burn images into the back of your mind as you keep looking at them while you work .
4. Reverse: See the pic .
5. Vocab: See the pic .
6. Grade: Pick which grade you'd like to learn
7. Options: Pretty self explanatory
8. On Time:
Explanation found in help file. It's a really cool feature, read more:
9. Create your own Kanji lists!:
Explanation found in help file. Sometimes the grades can be quite tooooo much so make your own lists and use those to study as well~
WOW this is real helpful. especially since im learning japanese, i can get the grammar down(hiragana and katakana r already in my memory) but the kanji is wats killing me. thanks njt-sama
I'm in agreement with the guy above me...this looks to be quite useful since I know Kanji will give me a beating. I'm looking forward to it once I'm ready for Kanji.
Many thanks for the link and the explanations.
is this just for kanji, or for a general intro to japanese? because i want to learn, but my college only offers the usual and chinese. i've been to japan about 3 or 4 times, i usually go during summer on business trips with my grandfather, so i'd really like to learn, thanx
Wow, thanks njt! This could be very useful! ^^
I want to learn japanese myself but I'm still not futher than Hiragana and Katakana, so this program is great!
Wow, what a great resource. I'll give this a try sometime!
glad it could help
Will it be of any help if someone wants to learn kanji, but has no knowledge of kana?
well,im stuck with learned kanji in the past days...
Thx for the program...Its really helpful
oh, thanks a lot.
i have downloaded Kanji Gold, but i don't know how to use it.
so, at first, i thought that it wasn't useful
hahaha. it's all thanks to you! that i can use it now!
Thanks!!!!!!!! this is really helpful
i've had no training (formal or otherwise) what so ever, would this program teach me the basics?
Thanks a lot! I was looking for such a program!
