It’s the end of Week 45 and we are cruising steadily through the 6th grade! Just three more weeks until we graduate to high school!!!

We’ve heard some concerns from a few people who are worried that they can’t keep up. And we wanted to let you know: don’t fret! It’s OK if you don’t memorize every single kanji and radical and on’yomi and kun’yomi each week…it’s a lot to learn and kanji are much more complex than simple vocab.

The most important thing to focus on is the overall meaning of the kanji, and then one or two times its used in context. As you learn and get exposed more you will get more comfortable to say “Oh I know that kanji” even if you aren’t sure how it’s pronounced in that word. Just remember, the biggest part of the kanji challenge is getting daily exposure to more and more kanji!

We had FOURTEEN different radicals this week (and we learned two new ones!) so let’s see how we did!
