New edition of Preparation for Kanken level 8 (Wide version), a book specially designed to prepare the eighth level of the official kanji exam.
For this level, students will need to practice reading, writing and the correct use of 200 kanjis. This series introduces kanjis gradually, with varied exercises, authentic vocabulary and the kanji strokes. The graphic design of this series is attractive and educational at the same time, and some details such as the strokes visually stand out.
The book is divided in 34 units, each of them including 6 different kanji. They all include all possible readings, examples and a picture to help students remembering each character. Kanjis appear alphabetically ordered so it is really easy to find them. Once students have studied all kanjis, there are a series fo exercises in which students should write a certain character or one of their possible readings.
The book includes two complementary notebooks: One of them with the answer key and the other one with the order of strokes of each kanji.
This edition is different from the previous one because the pictures have been changed and also some exercises, but the number of kanjis remains the same.
This is the wide version whose size is 25x18 cm, there is a smaller versión whose size is 21x15 cm, both books have the same content.
