Jesse先生のお悩みは?!

Kanji.  Oh kanji.
 
If you have been reading my blogs, you know that I took a Japanese test recently.  There was kanji on the test, and I did really poorly on that section.  So, I have decided to study kanji more seriously, so that I can take the next level test in December.
 
I ordered a lot of different study materials on Amazon, and they came in the mail last weekend.  Now I’m trying to find a good habit for using them.  But Kanji is crazy!
 
One of the materials I got is a workbook.  It teaches me kanji one at a time, and it shows me the correct stroke order.  It has space for me to write each kanji 30 times, to help me remember the stroke order.  My co-workers were all laughing at me the other day during lunch, when I was writing the kanji for “one” over and over again in my workbook.  Yes, I wrote it 30 times, and then I did “two” and “three” as well.  I didn’t want to skip anything!
 
It seems to help a little.  Aiko sensei has tested me a few times and I can do the kanji for “four” with the correct stroke order on my hand, but I couldn’t remember how to do “five”.  I kept mixing it up with “nine”.  I think the numbers are probably easier than anything else, so next week when I start other vocabulary it’s going to get more difficult.
 
I also have a set of flash cards.  It has 300 common kanji.  Each card has a kanji on it, with notes about stroke order, both the on and kun readings, and a few examples of words that use the kanji.  They seem pretty neat but I’ve never studied with flash cards before and I’m not really sure what the best way to use them is.  So far I’ve taken 10 cards and kept them with me all day, and every once in a while I pull them out and look at them.  I’m not sure if that’s actually helping or not though!
 
Also, writing the kanji is one thing, and numbers are pretty basic, but I’m still very confused by all the other things related to kanji.  I only partly understand the “on reading” and “kun reading” stuff, radicals, how kanji combine, looking them up in a dictionary, etc.  Kanji is crazy!
 
I also got two practice test books for the big Japanese test, one for the level 5 I took a few weeks ago, and one for the level 4 I plan to take in December.  Practice tests are really helpful, so this time I will be much better prepared!
 
Any advice for learning kanji?
