A new approach to
writing & learning hundreds of Chinese characters within hours
Generations of students have experienced many months of frustrating learning efforts caused by poor
language learning methodology. A new mind blowing learning technology introduced in this course book will
revolutionize the access to the Japanese and Chinese languages. Writing and memorizing of Chinese
characters can now easily be done.
Chinese characters (Hanzi) - also used in the Japanese language (Kanji) - are arranged by their 'looks'
(shape) instead of their meanings. Small groups of six similar characters each will help you to save precious
time exercising writing and reading. Learning speed will be improved by creating a solid base of at least 333
Kanji just within hours. And this will boost your motivation to learn the Japanese language.
Please refer to www.Kanji-Sudoku.com for free Japanese & Chinese related language learning materials like
crossword puzzles or Sudoku with Chinese characters.
Get ready for the Asian Century.
We are looking for Japanese language related webmasters to arrange other language versions of this eBook (up to 50/50
royalties split) at Lulu.com. Please contact us: Translation (at) Kanji-Sudoku.com
