This book introduces all 46 hiragana and all 46 katakana (including dakuten, compound hiragana, and compound dakuten), and makes them easy to learn! While you are relaxed, enjoying a coloring book, the information can more easily penetrate your brain to be learned, retained, and recalled when needed. Coloring slows the brain down long enough to more fully engage with the form - and sound - of each kana.This book is not meant to be a stand-alone form of instruction in the Japanese language, but rather, it is intended to be a fun supplement to beginner level coursework, classes, or other learning materials. This book can also be used as a great first step in learning hiragana and katakana, and an enjoyable way to begin the journey through the Japanese syllabaries. It can also be used to prove to reluctant learners that they CAN learn the kana - easily!!! Many people feel they cannot learn - or retain - the kana and working through this coloring book will quickly prove otherwise. Coloring only one page a day will result in a strong beginning, allowing students to learn and retain all 46 hiragana and all 46 katakana in a little over three months. More ambitious learners can easily cover more ground, more rapidly. It is recommended that students first read the sound each kana makes, then trace the stroke order with their fingers. Next, students should color the kana - following the stroke order - while keeping its sound in mind as they work. Simply slowing down and engaging with the form and sounds of each kana in this way allows the brain to more easily process it. After coloring in the kana, consider decorating the entire page so you will have a beautiful reference book - made by you - to review at the end of your study! GAMBATE!
