  • Sign up to here: http://www.freejapaneselessons.com/ They're excellent with getting you into the groove of Japanese. As for Japanese words, you have here (Word translators, Kanji radicals etc.) And us :D Here's a few tips:

    Kanji are special type of words, that have a series of what is called "Radicals". the Kanji by Radical section finds Kanji by their recognised radicals. Kanji have a series of different meanings, as far as I know: 900 =P Here's a few I know:

    私 - Watashi, meaning I, myself.
    砂 - Suna, meaning sand
    愛 - Ai, meaning love
    風 - Kaze/Fuu, meaning wind
    火 - Ho/Hi, meaning Fire

    And you just have to get used to them ^^ Hope I helped :D

    A kanji has only one radical. They have several 部首.

    And you can do all of that on this site, no need for any freejapaneselessons.com

    I recommend buying Remembering the Kanji by Heisig if you want to understand and remember kanji though.

    omigad, I remember that website. You're making me all nostaligic. It was certainly a good place to start!
  • Kanji are special type of words


    Kanji are not words.. they are characters, like a, b, c... the difference being that each kanji has a meaning where our characters don't.

    We don't like spammers on this forum, you don't have to post that crappy site in all of your posts "brad". Who would seriously use a site which considers "basic Japanese sounds" intermediate Japanese anyway?
