Kanji (漢字), hiragana, katakana

Postby ilovenippon1 » Fri 04.24.2009 10:28 am

Hey guys,

I opened this new thread in order to discuss the 'issue' of kanji in Japanese, which is pretty important and essential (although i think there might be another thread dedicated to the topic, but it's hard to find it) anyway....
For those of u guys who r facing a problem learning the kanji, i ask u just to post any question related to it and i'll be happy to answer to u. Furthermore, I want to discuss the stroke order and its importance in this thread too.
As I see it, stroke order is pretty important, and if u ignore it, this may cause some trouble to u when u reach advanced level of kanji, as u won't be able to memorize the complex ones.
What do u think guys? Is the stroke order important or not in ur opinion?
I'll be waiting 4 any comments or questions from u.
Oh, i forgot something, 4 those of u guys who r studing the kana writing system, I am ready to answer any of ur questions concerning kana too. :)

Please read the FAQ about typing things like "u r" for "you are."

I think stroke order is important. Like you said it helps for those higher level kanji, it helps when you copy a kanji that you don't know, and it help if you need to count the number of strokes.
