Product Description

Review

The White Rabbit cards are a very useful addition to the learning aides for students studying Japanese. -- Jim Breen, Monash University, April 2004

White Rabbit Press's kanji flashcards are a step ahead. Above and beyond the standard content, you get six example words rather then the usual four, full definitions, and a look-alike box that alerts you to similar characters all too likely to show up in trick questions in exams. As with all the best educational materials, it's clear here that an enormous amount of work has gone into making the learning process as easy and convenient as possible for the student. --Giles Murray, author of Exploring Japanese Literature

Format: Cards Verified Purchase
This set provides flash cards for all of the Kanji which were required knowledge for levels 3 and 4 (the two easiest levels) of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) prior to 2006. Please note that JLPT levels are cumulative, so if you wanted to take the L3 exam you would need to know all the L3 and L4 Kanji.

The JLPT has now changed to a 5-level system, N5 to N1, with level N5 being essentially the same as the old L4 and level N4 being the same as the old L3. The kanji covered in this set are suitable for revision for the new testing scheme.

As with their Kana flash card box, White Rabbit have planned this set out very well indeed and built on the experience of their previous releases.

What's in the box?

- A printed card guide explaining the layout, which also includes a large yomi index and a stroke index,
- One double-sided Hiragana/Katakana chart,
- 103 Level 4 (N5) Kanji cards (green),
- 181 Level 3 (N4) Kanji cards (dark blue),
- 3 or more recommend-a-friend cards,
- A couple of cards about White Rabbit.

The cards and even the box they come in have been designed to be both appealing and informative. There is little clutter, and simple design in combination with a controlled colour palette means the information is easy to digest.

The 3.5x2.5" cards are glossy with rounded corners and apparently are coated with "UV varnish" which presumably makes them fade resistant to some degree.

The Kanji cards are well-designed. Unlike the kana cards, they are presented horizontally to allow more information to be fitted in.

I highly recommend this product as it is a White Rabbit Press release which is well-known for high quality study guides especially the flash cards.

Wut's good about this set is that it forces you to learn to read and/speak the kanji which has 6 useful examples when used in a compound or a phrase. Providing, that is you have at least memorised the kana [relatively with hiragana]. There's also NO romaji whatsoever which might be frustrating at first but it does help you use what kana characters you have remembered and to actually use them. It's harsh but it keeps you constantly mentally accessing the kana.

Another thing is the layout. The design serves well as on one side it features the kanji itself and the stroke order and the 6 examples of its use. On the back is where the kana equivalent of the 6 examples and the english meaning and the kun

I'm going to try and make this a brief review as I tend to ramble on! After beginning to read 'Remembering the Kanji' 1 I wanted to get some cards to carry around with me during 'dead' time on buses etc, and looking around I saw these were highly rated so I decided to get them over other packs I'd seen.

Good points: The cards are professionally made, with good quality card, smart fonts and a glossy finish. The layout is comprehensive and the leaflet that comes included with the box clears up any misunderstandings (I got a bit confused about the smaller kanji to the right of the main one). I like the fact that almost everything is in kana or kanji as this encourages learning of both and improves reading skills, however this also means that these are not the kind of cards the casual learner may want to use or those used to romaji, though I think the majority of people who buy these cards know that Japanese is very hard to learn casually! The cards are really useful as they point out similar looking kanji which you may confuse with the one you are looking at, as well as showing the strokes forming the kanji and compounds formed with the kanji. The kanji for the different levels of the JPLT are coloured differently which makes it a lot easier to sort through and when learning for level 3 it gives you an idea of which kanji should be coming easily to you and which are going to be newer and harder to learn.

Bad points: I found the order of the kanji cards difficult to get to grips with, as I don't think they are ordered in a way that helps you to learn them alongside traditional, conversational lessons (I can't be sure, I'm a home learner). For example, the kanji for the numbers are scattered throughout the pack rather than grouped together.

I have started learning Japanese about 8 months ago but have been putting off the studying of kanji. I find kanji rather terrifying and, really, I tried to avoid it as much as I can. However it is impossible to be proficient in Japanese without knowing kanji (which means being illiterate and stopping the learning process by not writing anything - which means not practicing grammar as effectively). So, after finding this kanji flashcards's set and reading the reviews I decided to buy it and I'm really happy with the product. This set has 284 kanji cards which help to prepare for Japanese Language Proficiency Test level 3/4 (the easiest one). These 284 kanji are very frequent and common in Japanese vocabulary studied by the beginners. Each character has it's stroke order written down on one side of the card and about 6 sample words made of that certain kanji. The set also includes a card with hiragana/katakana alphabet on each side (it is helpful when you forget them sometimes). Both on and kun readings are written, as they usually are, in katakana and hiragana. So no romaji is used for Japanese words.
The flashcards are great if you want to organise kanji into the groups of learnt kanji, recognised kanji and unlearnt kanji. It is brilliant for a quick review and studying. I really recommend these cards to everyone (and it's cheaper than to make one's own cards - I tried that too!).
