Abstract

The learning of Chinese characters (Kanji) is one of the most difficult problems for learners from non-Kanji backgrounds.In this study, the difficulties are examined from a cognitive perspective and several promising proposals for learning Kanji are offered with respect to (1) problems originating in the Kanji characters themselves, and (2) problems associated with learning environments.
