Description

Each page gives 20 kanji, called a "Set." This is an ideal amount for rapid review and it matches the amount of kanji on the corresponding workbook page. The kanji of each Year are placed in 50-on order (a hiragana alphabetical order), so each set presents the next group of 20 in the sequence.

Each set has a page for Practice, Test, Special, Example, and Description.

The Practice page allows practice of each Joyo List reading (pronunciation) for the kanji in the set. The Joyo List is a list of readings specified as "common" by the Ministry of Education in Japan; they are taught in schools.

The Test page gives a multiple choice test for each reading that was on the corresponding Practice page.

The Special page gives readings that are not specified by the Joyo List, and therefore are not on the Practice page, but are nevertheless associated with the kanji. Many Special readings are important.

The Example page presents 2 example words for every kanji. These are common words, and, when possible, they have been selected to give two different readings of the kanji.

The Description page presents the "elements" that comprise the kanji as well as a brief illustrative explanation of the pictographic meaning. Kanji Learning Today: Online 2 and Kanji Learning Today: Online 3 give only the elements.
