In order to improve the ability to use kanji, of course one must learn the characters, but it is necessary to know how they used in sentence structure before one can really begin to read and write kanji. Until recently, this aspect of teaching kanji has received no attention and, as a result, students have had trouble using kanji. The textbook developed by Machiko Kushida, Nobumi Tsukiji, Makiko Kanno and the speaker, Rumiko Mukai, solves this problem has proven to be effective. The speaker will introduce the textbook and their different approach to teaching kanji.
