rtk kanji

Yeah, that is also a very good way to learn them in my opinion. How many can you draw from memory and get the meaning correct? As for the point of doing RTK? All the kanji are analysed by components—Heisig terms these “primitives”—which may be traditional radicals , other kanji themselves, or a collection of strokes not normally identified as independent entities. Is it easier to look up kanji you recognize? But yeah, you will still have to look kanji up, just like you would if you didn’t recognize them. You would be able to understand the context of the kanji you see in a sentence and be able to figure out the general idea of it.

I’m learning the radicals first before going to Kanji deeply. The result is that I can look at my girlfriend’s financial accounting texts and interpret the different accounts on the ledger; I can figure out what is going on from the Japanese subtitles when a movie switches to some 3rd language, and I can do some basic editing while coding bilingual websites.

Do you also plan to do RTK or use another way to learn them? The other part is in a similar style to Volume 2, where the readings of the kanji are learned. University of Hawaii Press. Still, I do agree.


My road to learning kanji in 74 days using RTK 1

I’m on the earlier side of RtK, but here’s how I would describe it to a complete newbie to Kanji: I’m replacing the previously stickied “What is RtK???? Updated the grid pic and also added a pic of my anki stats of the RTK 1 deck.

Also, good luck with your studies! That person is pretty much bound to show up here later. A sixth edition was released in April Before I made a story for a kanji, I looked it up in Wakan to check out the first compounds that it frequents. The core of the method is creating the stories, and what you put into that stage of the method is exactly what you will get out of it in the end. RTK1 is more like the minimum passing line. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Some people will tell you that it is also for learning the meanings of the kanji.

I’ve been inputting Kanji and words into Anki as I come across things that seem like they will stick. The additional kanji has been included in response to the changes to the “general use” kanji list in December RTK3 kanjis are not really “extra” as you’ll need them eventually.

Here is a pic tracking my progress generated by the Anki add-on called kanji grid.

Remember the kanji

Yeah, that is also a very good way to learn them in my opinion. I need about 53 more radicals to start that which is only like 4 days away. Needless to say that not much of that is in my long even mid term memory but thankfully I have Anki.


What I meant with reading Japanese though was to actually be able to pronounce it and understand it fully, so that I can read the word and then use it in conversation. I am using Anki for SRS, 25 new kanjis a day.

It really depends on what you mean by “reading Japanese.

Hiragana only seems so harder to understand! Using Hiragana 5 Comments.

What’s the point of RtK (Remembering the Kanji) ?

If you can write them, you can use some electric dictionary which recognizes writing most electric dictionaries do not. While this is in generally true, one also has to remember that Heisig didn’t pick his keywords to let people understand compounds. That would give me a kanjl idea of its common range of meanings, and I would abstract a common theme from there.

My road to learning kanji in 74 days using RTK 1 Fuurinkazan. Anyway, my point is that the Heisig method can deliver more than just learning to write the kanji and collecting a bunch of archaic and kanni associated keywords. Updated kanni grid pic and also added a pic of my anki stats of the deck from the past 65 days, both in the opening post. I think I will stick to learning kanji a year though XD I am so busy learning the language that I feel learning kanji that quickly would just make it impossible.

I went through the Japanese tree and that gave me a good kick start.
