Kanji mnemonics

JISHOP is designed to be the core element of a kanji learning courseware. This courseware will be based on a special memorization technique: grouping characters by their Chinese readings and creating mnemonic stories that efficiently code all the information. Here you can read two documents about this technique:

"Learning Kanji through Plot Mnemonics"
(short article about the method published in the Daily Yomiuri in 1995)

"The Chain Method of Studying Japanese Characters"
(big and detailed description)
