Kyouiku Kanji: Japanese Kanji by Grade Level is an essential series of books that not only separates over 1000 Japanese Kanji into their respected grade level, but also includes the various pronunciations of each Kanji character, as well as the English definition. In an effort to help readers remember the Hiragana and Katakana syllabaries, this book series avoids using the Romaji romanization. In addition, each Kanji character is enlarged and designed in such a way to enable the readers to be able to practice the stroke order inside each Kanji character, allowing this book to be used as either a textbook or a workbook. Whether you are studying for an important exam such as the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) or The Japan Kanji Aptitude Test, or are learning Japanese in a school setting or on your own, Kyouiku Kanji: Japanese Kanji by Grade Level, is a must-have resource to help you quickly obtain Kanji recognition skills and to eventually achieve Kanji mastery. This first book in the series presents 80 Kanji at the first grade level in great detail.
