One of the greatest difficulties in learning Japanese is kanji. They have great importance in the language, and have their good points, but learning them can be a great difficulty. How do Japanese students learn this at school?

Many end up being frightened by such ideograms that are practically the opposite of the Portuguese language. Understand that they are not entirely necessary, Japanese children do not learn everything in a year like the roman alphabet.

The Japanese see kanji as something simple and normal, since childhood they have not seen any of this as a difficulty. Therefore, you should not regard kanji as impossible!

To make good use of this list, we recommend having a handout that teaches kanji, a dictionary, or an online website like Jisho, so you can copy the kanji you want to learn from the list below and start examining it one by one.

We are leaving a short list with all kanji in the order of learning.
