As if being between childhood and adolescence wasn't anxiety-inducing enough, Japanese third graders have one more thing to worry about: during this time, their teachers start demanding from them a more rounded understanding of kanji, the ideograms Japan imported from China centuries ago and adopted as their own. And for a good reason, since third graders still have almost 2,000 of these characters to learn until they are able to read regular Japanese like a newspaper. Of course, that doesn't happen overnight but in stages and the Complete Third Grade Kanji is a great way to navigate the kanji at this level.
The Complete Third Grade Kanji is a compact 128-page study guide. In its pages, you can find the 200 kanji taught in third grade, both individually, with the correct stroke sequence (yes, kanji must be written in a special order and yes, the Japanese can tell!) and in 480 compounds that help you build up your vocabulary. Using the hiragana syllabary and the kanji from the previous two years, this high-quality study guide consolidates your understanding of Japanese characters!
