It’s the End of Kanji for Water Week!

Did you notice most of our kanji this week used the water radical kanji for water (水, 氵, 氺)? 16 of the 21, in fact! Many times, kanji won’t look like their exact meaning but they will tell a story using the radicals and parts that make them up. This is why it is very important to learn the radicals of each kanji. It can be very helpful!

OK, on to our 21 kanji of the week! For a fun game, try to tell yourself the meaning of each kanji and a word it is used on before clicking the link to see the answer.
