JLJ 6: Tackling big Kanji (part 3 of 3 for transitioning from Heisig)

This is the last part of my videos on transitioning from Heisig (unless I figure out some other cool observations). Here I chat about tackling large groups of Kanji, and how using Heisig can help to break them up, and learn them. This was one of the most difficult obstacles I perceived when starting the journey to learn Japanese, and I feel its something that people feel too. Long chains of Kanji can always be broken up into bits to make them easier to read, and I give examples of this. Hopefully these three videos on “transitioning from Heisig to reading” give a sense of how using the Heisig method then using certain approaches can help with starting to read after learning Kanji in English.
