Hey there, fellow Wanikanians! So I moved house last weekend, and in packing and unpacking I came across a few old Japanese textbooks that I bought when I was in Japan some 15 years ago OMG 15 years ago srsly?? I’m OLD. I haven’t used them in forever, but clearly I thought I would since I’ve been lugging them around since I moved out of my parents’ house.
Anyhoo, I thought I’d share some pictures with you - I bet we all have some old textbooks we don’t use much but keep for sentimental reasons or “just in case”. Could be fun to share them, no?
So here they are. Kanji Master! (hidden the rest of the images for easier reading)
Does anyone know them? I used these when I stayed in Japan to study for a few months. I had every book in the series (there were four, if I remember correctly) but only have these two at hand. You can see I was a dork, too, writing my name and nationality on them for some reason:
I worked hard at Vol. 3, most of the exercises have been done and its covered in notes and comments:
As for volume 4, it’s pristine. Never got there.
It’s funny to note that at my WaniKani level I know most of the volume 3 book and a fair bit of volume 4. I’ll post a photo of the table of contents later, if people are interested… it’s also worth noting that these were produced back when the 能力試験 had only four levels, so it’s likely that the content organisation in these is a bit outdated!
