    Hi Inhae,
    What jp-jp dictionary you recommend or use in ur electronic dict?
    Also abt studying for jlpt n2,
    I keep practising writing kanji and not progressing much. But just recognising kanji doesnt make me feel complete. Can you pls suggest some ideas, or how you have managed?

    Thanks

    • Hello,

      I’m mainly using the 広辞苑 (こうじえん) because the definitions are often short and not too difficult. But the main reason is that there is a shortcut to access this dictionary on my electronic dictionary, so it makes it easy to switch between the 広辞苑 and the Jap-Eng dictionary without having to re-enter the word. I hope it makes sense…

      As for the kanji, I must admit that I have more or less given up writing them. I can write by memory the most basic ones, but I could not write a whole text in Japanese by hand without checking up how to write most of the kanji. It is frustrating, but I have decided to focus my energy on recognising as many words as possible (to improve my reading) instead of practicing my writing…

      I’m sorry that I don’t have concrete ideas… but don’t give up, I’m sure that practice is key, even if we feel like we are not progressing.

      Good luck!
