333 Kanji-in-a-Day
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.
