The Kanji Learner's Course Green Book offers the most convenient way to practice the writing of all 2,300 kanji in the widely praised Kodansha Kanji Learner's Course.Even today when most learners are focused on learning to read kanji rather than to write them, handwriting practice remains essential. Integrating hand-eye coordination with the kinesthetic experience of each kanji's stroke sequence, handwriting improves your ability to recognize each kanji, grasp intuitively how it is put together, and distinguish it from lookalikes.Designed to help you use your study time most efficiently, this simple little workbook contains just the right quantity of writing spaces -- four large spaces followed by seven small spaces -- to give you enough practice for each character. It also offers you:* Convenience: Following the Course sequence entry by entry, the Green Book makes it easy for you to structure the right amount of handwriting practice into your study routine, experience a sense of creative accomplishment, and exploit the Course's full value.* A broad overview of groups of related kanji: Displaying forty kanji per spread, it also allows you to survey the Course's graphically related groupings, consider the similarities and differences among nearby characters, and fully absorb how each kanji's unique features and composition relate to its meaning.* A good solution for mastering stroke order: Each entry contains both a guide character and tracing characters, but deliberately excludes stroke order to allow you to develop an independent mastery of kanji composition. The main Course book provides stroke order diagrams for when you need them, but this will not be very often provided you follow the Course's graphically cumulative sequence and practice writing every kanji as you go.* Guidance for mastering proper stroke forms: Both the guide characters and the practice squares are cross-hatched to help you achieve precise form.* Savings: Standard genk�y�shi manuscript paper typically costs around US$7-12 online. The Green Book is priced toward the bottom of this range while offering unique convenience for users of the Kanji Learner's Course.

This book for the first time presents the effects of writing systems on second language reading and writing and on second language awareness, and provides a new platform for discussing bilingualism, biliteracy and writing systems.

The area of cognitive processing of Chinese and Japanese is currently attracting a great deal of attention by leading cognitive psychologists. They aim to find out the similarities and differences in processing the morphosyllabic Chinese and Japanese syllabary as compared with alphabetic language systems. Topics under the processing of Chinese include: the use of phonological codes in visual identification of Chinese words, the constraint on such phonological activation, recognition of Chinese homophones, Chinese sentence comprehension and children's errors in writing Chinese characters. Topics under the processing of Japanese include: the automatic recognition of kanji within an interactive-activation framework, On-reading and Kun-reading of kanji characters, processing differences between hiragana and kanji, the effect of polysemy on katakana script, and the writing behavior of Japanese and non-Japanese speakers. The interactive-activation model provides the phonologic-orthographic links in processing both language systems. The present volume should add greatly to our understanding of this topic. Many of the contributors are internationally known for their experimental psychological work.

Through the real-life context of one child learning to be bilingual and biliterate, this book raises questions and provides a context for pre-service and practicing teachers to understand and reflect on how children learn to read and write in multiple languages. Highlighting the social and cognitive advantages of biliteracy, its purpose is to help teachers better understand the complexity by which young children become biliterate as they actively construct meaning and work through tensions resulting from their everyday life circumstances. Perspectives regarding identity and language ideologies are presented to help teachers refine their own pedagogical approaches to teaching linguistically diverse children. Readers are engaged in understanding early biliteracy through a process of articulating and questioning their own assumptions and beliefs about learning in multiple languages and literacies.

This book investigates the current EFL market in East Asia, focusing on K-12, university, and cram school English education in Japan, China, and Korea. It explores prevailing educational practices by both Asian learners and teachers of English, contrasting them with Western practices, and illuminating why Western pedagogical methods have often encountered tremendous resistance from teachers, administrators, parents, and students in the East Asian classroom context. After establishing this cultural contrast of pedagogical norms, the book presents a series of practical means for adapting Western teaching practices and philosophies to better suit the learning styles of East Asian students and the cultural context and practical realities of the East Asian classroom, offering both Western teachers working in East Asia and native East Asian teachers realistic plans for turning theory into successful practice. These plans are divided by subsections, focusing on the linguistic subskills being taught: listening/speaking, reading, and writing. Each section includes two contrasting lesson plans to demonstrate how the educational theories and practices promoted by the author can often be implemented by making relatively simple changes to existing practices that incorporate a fuller understanding of how to actively assist students in developing new learning styles and behaviors.
