The Japan Foundation, Manila presents “Learning Kanji to Master Japanese”, a webinar introducing methods for non-Kanji background learners to help them become familiar with Kanji in order to use it as a tool in learning Japanese.
The guest lecturer is Professor Fusako Beuckmann, PhD, from the University of Tokyo.
Dr. Beuckmann is a member of the Programs in English at Komaba (PEAK) team at the University of Tokyo and is deeply involved in sociolinguistic research and second language learning. She has extensive experience in teaching Japanese in various universities in the United States and Japan, and has published numerous resources for language learning. Her works include Learning Kanji Through Stories, Watashi no Nihongo: A Beginner’s Level Guide to Expressing my Feelings and Thoughts, among others.
Abstract: Quite a few non-Kanji background learners might think that learning Kanji is a burden. However, the more differentiated and difficult the Japanese language becomes, the more Kanji and Kanji vocabulary learners will have to study. In other words, learning Japanese becomes easier by mastering Kanji. In this lecture, some methods for non-Kanji background learners are introduced to help them become familiar with Kanji . Also, I would like to answer the questions about how many Kanji to learn and how to learn Kanji at the beginner’s stage.
