I have decided that I would like to try to pass the JLPT 1 in the next few years. Thus I started analyzing the amount of Kanji I would need to learn. The current list of daily use kanji comes in at roughly 1948 characters. Of which I immediately recognized something like 400 of, and was fairly sure I knew what another 100 meant. Leaving me roughly 1500 more to learn. Combining that list with the firefox addin called Rikaichan which roughly means “little comprehender” I can study all of them. I’m planning to make flash cards using a Heisig style story approach combined with an Anki/smart.fm style increasingly spaced out review.
Here I come Kanji study!
