Kanji Koohii


This site is designed as a supplementary tool for learners studying the kanji using James Heisig's "Remembering the Kanji" method. You can make flashcards to help you memorise the kanji.

  • This is a flashcard tool created to help learners who are using James Heisig's "Remembering the Kanji" series of books to learn the kanji.
  • You can study the meanings of - and how to write - over 2000 kanji characters.
  • You can see a clear display of your level of progress regarding how many kanji you've memorised and how many you are yet to master. It's a good way to gauge both your achievement so far and the challenge that lies ahead.
  • You can share with others your own method for remembering a particular kanji, and when you get stuck you can refer to other learners' tips.
  • The forum is buzzing with activity, and is a good place to pick up lots of useful information from fellow learners.
