Any suggestions for the best way to learn Kanji?

Asked 8 years ago

I was told by a friends language tutor at school she learned off of KanjiBox but it doesn't make any sense to me (the website). Hiragana and Katakana are pretty easy for me because I like to think artistically (since I am good at drawing) but for some reason I can't grasp Kanji. Please help!

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

The ability to add any kanji to your drills is a powerful tool on Nihongo Master.  It is a premium membership feature, but it allows you to add any word/kanji from the dictionary into the Dojo.  When adding a kanji, it will drill you on the meaning to kanji, kanji to meaning, onyomi and kunyomi (the different readings).  So, it's pretty extensive. 


There's also already study lists made for various JLPT levels with the relevant kanji.


So hopefully that helps a lot! The premium features is available as a 7-day trial to new users.  So you can at least try the feature and see if it works for you.
