On the Subject of Remembering Dragon Energy
With the help of the Genki Plus textbook and a lot of visual examples, all of these characters should be much easier to see and remember!
Let’s face it — describing the character on the module can be difficult. But, this character reference for “Dragon Energy” will make the module’s characters easier to visualize.
This character reference does not include the rules of the module, but only a mnemonic for each of the 30 characters and the applied Venn diagram on the last page. Refer to the original manual for the rest of the rules.
These next six pages consist of these columns.
- First column is the original Traditional Chinese characters on the module.
- Second column is the English meaning of the character.
- Third column is the pictogram description.
- Fourth column is the best possible name to remember the character.
Most examples on the third column include italicized quotes and pictures from the textbook: “Genki Plus: Kanji Look and Learn” by Japan Times™. The breakdown for each character in the “Dragon Energy” module is described with Japanese katakana letters and kanji. The Reference Tables 1 and 2 are only used to further visualize the shape of the characters on the module that can be easy to remember.
