When to begin learning Kanji

Asked 6 years ago

I want to start as soon as possible getting ready for the JLPT lvl 5, but when I started getting ready to start diving into some kanji, I started seeing multiple forms in which they could be used and things of the like. So my question is, before I start trying to add kanji to my drills, should I go ahead and work my way through all/most of the core lessons and get those down before diving too far into kanji?

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

Yes, I would recommend you to work on general lessons along with your kanji study.  If you don't learn kanji with their vocabularies, you won't be able to use them. 

Also, as you may know, you need to know basic grammars, vocabularies, and expressions etc. to pass JLPT5 not only kanji.  Our lessons have almost covered the content for JLPT5 and, of course, kanji for it.  We'll finish the beginner level soon, and when you finish the level, you should be ready for JLPT5!


Good luck on you study!

Thank you! I'm actually just getting halfway through the katakana lessons so I should be getting to grammar/vocabulary soon. Will the beginner level be done before December of this year?

Sure! We're almost done with the JLPT5.

Awesome! Glad to hear it! ^_^ In October I'm heading to the Yamasa Institute in Okazaki to start training in the Japanese language so that I can become a translator, so I definitely want to get the JLPT taken care of. XP

I learnt around 2100 Kanji before starting any vocab, grammar and such. It's very useful even if it's just knowing the meaning of the kanji. So I'd say go for learning kanji soon as possible!
