Welcome to Part 2 of our ongoing series for learning kanji. Here are some more kanji learning tips you can apply to your routine or studies. These tips won’t work for everyone, but I’m sure you can get some inspiration from them. Let’s get started!

A difficult sentence for Japanese learners 0

Japanese Twitter and blogs are abuzz about a sentence that is said to be difficult for learners of the Japanese language.

Difficult for those starting out in Japanese

Can you spot the problem? Take a look at the 日 (day) kanji. It’s used five times in the sentence, but the reading is different each time depending on which word compound it's in.

Before we get into the breakdown of the sentence, it’s important to remember that kanji used in Japanese usually has a Chinese reading (on yomi) and a native Japanese reading (kun yomi). This, combined with the fact that some words are forced to work with existing Chinese characters, can result in complicated reading rules that learners and natives just have to remember.
