For each Chinese reading of a kanji, an example compound word is given. The images greatly aid in my recall and I no longer have the issue of the keywords that are hard to differentiate.

James W. Heisig – Remembering the Kan – Memrise

How to learn Kanji? The only difference between these decks is the default order of learning. The cover of the 5th Edition. Thanks for your comment: Another radical departure from more traditional methods is the order in which it teaches kanji.

Balance deliberate study and fun! This deck has the same content as this deck: If I were learning Japanese from scratch and I wasn’t taking a class I would then consider focusing exclusively on studying this book. I am guessing you are the author of the previous all-in-one 1. That may help some people, heksig for me the frequency was more distracting than helpful. If you use the primitive “semen” flying in the wind from your crotch instead of missile then all kanjis with this primitive will hilariously create a perfect story.


On top of this, heisit cards that were added to this version are lacking any of the information the rest of the cards have, including mnemonics, definitions, example words. However, in cases where the reader may be easily confused or for difficult kanji, Heisig often provides a small story or hint.

Probably you were foolish enough to risk a quick glance once or twice; kaji just as probably, you passed that bit of folk wisdom on to someone else as you grew older. The method requires the student to invent their own stories to associate the keyword meaning with the written form.

Learning the correct stroke order might seem like a nuisance at first, but it will systematize how you write the kanji thus making them easier to write. Actually I do not use the heisig book at all, I just use this deck! Much easier to recall with the image I now see around 8 new kanji a day.

I do now limit the reviews to 16 a day, but with this amount of new kanji, it is enough.

A sheep became the foster parent for a wolf pup, feeding it with milk. More typos, more some later edition keywords. Now you can also easily memorize this new word by remembering that in Japanese postcards are leaves with writing. The difference between ‘affix’ and ‘post a bill’ seems to be the sort of thing that was edited in for clarity, as an example. This made me lose motivation since it didn’t give me real value. More typos, add some later edition keywords.

The quizzes were similar to the homework and easily doable if you had studied enough time. After downloading all cards heissig are mixed up when sorting after Due. The kanjji is that although I have fun with this method if this all the studying I did I would get bored and quit.


We only learn one basic meaning, e. The last version of this deck was good, but this should not be used along with the book. After we thoroughly studied hiragana and katakana we started studying kanji.

The other part is in a similar style to Volume 2, where the readings of the kanji are learned. Unlike the first volume, this book does not rely on “imaginative memory”. I just want to learn how to read so all I want is to study kanji to keyword. This was a fairly intensive four hours a week class that made me fall in love with studying Japanese. Volume 2 of each book was published in early Of course you can easily turn the heisiv off or alter them so it’s heisif that big of a deal.

This deck is excellent quality and contains more than everything you need. Keyword to Kanji I’m also having a similar issue as another person with customisation as I wish to only review the cards from the keyword to the kanji as Heisig very explicitly points out. The course teaches the student to utilize all the constituent parts of a kanji’s written form—termed “primitives”, combined with a mnemonic device that Heisig refers to as “imaginative memory”.

This method gave me solid progress, but there were also some terrible realizations. Filling up these notebooks can give one quite a good sense of achievement With Anki, I would study between heisif or five new cards every heisib with one kanji on each card and review the kanji as Anki gave me review cards.
