The Kanji SITE : A guide for students of Japanese kanjiCitation:
The Kanji SITE was launched in September 1999 as a way for its author, Chris Jennings, to practice his (er, I mean, "my") kanji in preparation for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). It originally covered only the 80 kanji required for Level 4 of the JLPT, but has since grown to include a total of 1,000 kanji, namely the entire official syllabus for Levels 4, 3 and 2 of the exam.
Since the launch, features such as random testing pages, a search engine and an automated mailing list script have been added. The site moved from its free hostspace on Tripod to a professional hosting service in May 2000, in order to escape the tyranny of pop-up adverts. A Russian-language version of the site was born in January 2001, and efforts are underway to get it translated into other languages too.
Most recently, in August 2001, the visual design and information architecture of the site was given a complete overhaul; the original colour scheme (purple links on a dark blue background - what on Earth was I thinking?) gave way to a much brighter, clearer look. This time I've gone overboard on Lucida Sans Unicode, but at least it's easier on the eye.
The Kanji SITE is aimed primarily at people who are studying for the JLPT, and as such the kanji are organized according to the syllabi for Levels 4, 3 and 2 of that test. The JLPT Level 1 kanji will start to be added in due course - i.e. just as soon as I've finished detailing the Level 2 kanji. Patience, Luke.
It will soon also be possible to study the kanji in the order that nature (well, the Japanese Ministry of Education, anyway) intended, i.e. according to the government's official Joyo and Kyoiku Kanji lists.http://www.kanjisite.com/ more Language: eng English
