Have a textbook or grammar book that you find particularly helpful? What about a learning tip to share with others?

Kanji Chain Method

Postby clay » Wed 08.02.2006 11:50 am

I found this site: http://www.susi.ru/kanji/ChMethod.html which seemed like an interesting way to attack kanji.

Basically it uses mnemonics to learn groups of kanji by their on reading. For example, you make a story using the English basic meaning for each of the kanji.

I wonder if it can be a practical method of studying kanji. Anyone have any experience or comments on this?

I think it depends on the type of memory one has. For instance, creating analogies and such will most like confuse someone who (like me) relies mostly on visual memory to learn.
