But when i was able to buy it at discount and pore over it at my leisure, i found it was not exactly an academic, by-the-books text , so to speak. It was to be the first of several books I would start collecting on the subject. I am not as young as when i first picked up this book, and tired old eyes at the end of the working day will have just a little trouble focusing on the visual cacophony of illustrations, strokes and English words packed into each page. Even though this language is based on logical representations, some can be tough to visualize or even recall without a little "hook"or trick.

I usually prefer Japanese printings for that matter with that special silky paper and the extra wrapping around the book. And she is right. Nevertheless, I bought some books from the states as well and Kanji pict-o-graphix is one of them. When I first started with learning Japanese the Kanji, the so-called Chinese characters, were a big mystery for me. The same time I thought it would be a good idea to get into the Kanji learning as soon as possible and picked up some flashcards and this book from amazon.
Kanji pict-o-graphix still remained on my so-called book table at home but it was much later when I really gave it a look. Around two weeks ago to be precise.
Just discovered it again, lying under a huge pile of magazines and books. And while browsing through the pages I noticed how much thought and creative energy was put into this.
Especially because I really know how hard it is to create a fitting mnemonic for a Kanji and to construct a story around it. Or to rephrase this: I failed a lot and tried quite some different stuff to improve on my Japanese or to learn some Japanese at all Note: This will kick off a new series of articles or rather a new form.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Looking at the back-cover there are all sorts of false promises. In this article:.
