eSUN-Yomikaki is a supplementary course for
eSUN-Yomikaki is designed to teach how to read and write Japanese characters efficiently.
eSUN-Yomikaki introduces more than 800 kanji characters used in eSUN. Stroke-order, explanation, and pronunciation for each character can be practiced by typing, listing to examples, and using printable worksheets.
The Japanese writing system uses three different sets of characters: Katakana, Hiragana and Kanji (Chinese characters). Each Katakana and Hiragana character represents one sound, and must simply be memorized. Kanji, however, is pretty challenging. The difficulty lies in how to read the Kanji, as most of them have at least two readings. These two readings are called the On reading (based on the original Chinese sound) and the Kun reading (a Japanese word corresponding to the character's meaning). In addition, there are a large number of words made up by a combination of two or more Kanji. By studying both eSUN and eSUN-Yomikaki you will understand the characters as efficiently as possible.
