Kanji, the ideograms the Japanese borrowed from the Chinese and which became the central part of their written language, are one of the hardest hurdles to clear when learning Japanese: during school, the Japanese need to learn the basic set of 2,136, the basis for them are the 1,026 characters they learn in elementary school. And the Complete Second Grade Kanji is one of the best study guides to learn them!
Not all of them, of course: as the name suggests, the Complete Second Grade Kanji covers the material a Japanese child would learn in second grade. And if that sounds trivial, it isn't! There are 160 characters in this book and you also get 320 compound words. All you need to know in advance is the hiragana syllabary, an alphabet-like set of symbols that are also used for writing Japanese. Take your Japanese reading skills to the next level with this 128-page study book!
