Planning for the JLPT? Learn about the new JLPT test levels N1, N2, N3, N4, and N5. The JLPT is a goal for many students of the Japanese language - whether for university entrance, a job in Japan, or just personal motivation.
This year, there is only one JLPT being offered in my part of the country, and that's December 7. I'm going for N4, and that's a bit of a push, for me. I found that it's easy to drill vocabulary, except when it involves kanji because you have the onyomi and kunyomi readings.
I have spent a lot of time with the Japanesepod101.com flash card system, and it's really helped me build my vocabulary. However, the kanji on the flash card doesn't show the different onyomi readings. And then I thought to myself, well maybe the flashcards are supposed to be building Japanese vocabulary and are not intended as being a kanji study tool.
Do we have a method of learning the kanji readings on this site? What is the way to do that here? And, do we have JLPT lists already created? A user must have done that already, I suspect.
unfortunately jpod101's weak side is kanji studying (in my opinion at least). I am using the jpdos101 kanji bank as a reference tool and do the learning process offline with old fashioned hand written flash cards and repetition.
As a reference for stroke order sample sentences and such i use a few different resources like [url]wadoku.de[/url] and http://lingweb.eva.mpg.de/kanji/ (those two are german sites but there are english ones you could use) and books like Kodansha Kanji
It would be great if jpod101 could expand on kanji learning, cause right now its of little to no use what you get on this site regarding kanji. Besides that everyhing else here (Lessons and stuff) is great.
