What I love about language learning, or any kind of learning, is that you always find people doing similar things to you. I stumbled upon a cool video (at the bottom of this post) of a young lady explaining the Heisig method and she used nicely drawn pictures to help with illustrate the “imaginative story” party of Heisig. This was cool because I sometimes use art to more firmly imprint the meaning of certain Kanji on my mind. In the video below the young woman uses some amazing artwork to illustrate her lessons, so please don’t compare my cat scratches with her work! (; ^ . ^) but a few images of what I “scratch up” when i’m doing a bunch of Kanji are below, along with the vid.
A TIGER TYRANNIZES the villagers with his backwards BROOM. (you get the idea : p)
Gotta love mountain goats : p
So yeah those are my cat scratches to help with some Kanji. The video coutesy of the young lady from Culture Quirk is below! cheers.
Thank you so much for mentioning my video, I’m glad you enjoyed it! It’s awesome to see other people who use the same methods, it makes me feel like I’m doing *something* right 😛 And I personally like your pictures.. ^^
Thanks so much Delphine! What’s weird for me is that I just enjoyed blogging (very heavily) about my ups and downs in the process of learning Japanese. I didn’t realize so many people were on youtube chatting about learning/studying Japanese until after I did my first few video blogs. However, I don’t know if I’m trying to “teach” Japanese, just explain stuff that I am observing about approaches. Glad you like my pictures madame!
