Which I have found are #occasionally wrong And they are wrong enough to have me not trusting this book even #wrong And they are wrong enough to have me not trusting this book even the very limited but time consuming purpose it hasNow the RTK apology suad will say yes this book doesn t teach you to read a single word of Japanese despite the cover saying A systematic uide to reading the Japanese characters so really what is the point The author is of the mind that if you set hundreds of hours on fire learning all the kanji with only very basic English concepts then learning Japanese would be easier But at what opportunity cost Hundreds and hundreds of hours you will NEVER et back that could have otherwise been spent learning Japanese the right wayFirst problem is obvious It doesn t teach you to read Japanese characters Despite the book title it simply doesn t Despite the author s apparent confusion Japanese is not Chinese and is not read like Chinese not remotely close In the introduction after your money has been set afire of course the author tries explaining this away actually learning to read the Japanese characters is for another book Okay wish that had been put on the cover instead of the lie that was but whatever The end result is that you are much better off just starting with that other bookSecond problem kanji order This uses the process of building kanji like a house showing how kanji are linked This is interesting from a historical angle perhaps but not at all useful for learning Japanese or even kanji If This is interesting from a historical angle perhaps but not at all useful for learning Japanese or even kanji If are oing to bother learning kanji learn them in the order of usage rather than blowing weeks learning JLPT 1 unicorns first as this book does One reason for this is simple usefulness If you learn the most commonly used kanji first you can USE the most commonly used kanji you learn the most commonly used kanji first you can USE the most commonly used kanji whether it is reading children s books writing simple exercises watching subbed children s TV shows whatever You see immediate progress and that motivates you to move even faster It stops being work and starts being fun RTK is neither fun nor usefulThird Kanji English conceptual descriptions are occasionally VERY wrong Kanji 100 for example a JLPT 1 unicorn for cavity is a very professionaltechnical word for hole actually not even taught in school outside of history class you see it if you come across Confucius but that is about it However it uses an English story of a child s dental X Ray to help you remember it as meaning cavity Okay except this isn t the kanji for the Japanese concept of a dental cavity or even the concept of tooth decay Dental cavity is a completely different kanji wor.
