JLPT – Details

Well, I installed, thanks to Nukemarine’s helpful youtube video, the Kanji JLPT checker and it says for my ‘own’ core2k deck:

Wow. It seems personally to me like the kanji are just a piece of cake compared to learning their respective readings, compounds and grammatical structures used in sentences. I dare saying here that people who afraid of kanji are just afraid of using some inconventional method, namely the one of Heisig. It works. It worked and still works for so many people. (At some point the knowledge about the meanings of a kanji will not bring you any further when you do not know the meaning of a vocabulary, i.e. a compound. But in a lot of cases it will. That’s what I experienced at least.)
