Hi, my name is Kevin I'm a site writer Suki Desu and Learning Words and I'm creating this site Always with the Book for my friends Sergio and Hepalany. As I'm not a good reader of books and need to write a test article to show how this site will be standardized, I will talk about one of the few books I studied in the area I work is the Japanese language.
Why study Japanese? This will depend on your needs, some learn languages just by curiosity, others by the labor market and some because they want to live a day in the country. Japan is a country of countless possibilities, that's what my site Suki Desu want to show. So I invite readers of this site to take a peek.
For those who study Japanese know that one of the biggest difficulties is learning the lettering or Kanji. The philosopher James Heisig had a very different experience and was able to learn the Japanese language ideograms 3007 in less than a year.
He used a method that goes against basically all ideograms memorization methods. He tries to assimilate the ideogram according to his imagination and mind, creating Project Ideas and different views but that make sense of each ideogram.
This book is known internationally as RTK - Remembering the Kanji, but it was released in Brazil by Rafael Shoji under the name Kanji - Imaginar para Aprender. Unfortunately only volume 1 of 3 was released in Portuguese.
What is the Purpose of the Kanji Book - Imagine to learn?
The purpose of this book is to teach Japanese characters in a totally different way than the traditional one. The purpose of the book is to provide the student of Japanese with a simple method for correlating the writing and the meaning of Japanese characters so that both aspects become easy to remember.
This method provides a new perspective to the learning of kanji, showing how to overcome the complexities of the Japanese writing system, pointing out its basic elements and suggesting ways to reconstruct meanings from such elements. Even students of advanced Japanese usually use and know the method.
The method requires the student to invent their own stories in order to associate the meaning of the keyword with the written form. The book presents detailed stories, and over time less detailed stories. This is to encourage the student to use the stories as a practice to create their own.
The method seems to be very random, but requires you to really get to know the components and meanings of the ideograms before of trying to create their stories and rebuild the elements themselves. That is why the book is dedicated to explaining each radical and kanji that serves as a component.
I did a lot more detailed material on my site talking about this book. You can access clicking here.
