Kanji aren’t the nightmare people that imagine. True, there are lots. But then every language has a lot of words. So think of kanji as words. 

And when you are familiar with them, you can instantly grasp the essence of a block of text. 

I like the approach of James Heisig. Additionally, I developed my own kanji dictionary. I created a 5-digit code for each kanji. The first 3 digits refer to the direction of the first few strokes, and the final 2 give the total number of strokes.

I believe that the benefits of kanji may outnumber their disadvantages.

  1. I must get back into doing stuff with kanji. I've neglected them these past few months.
