JLPT N1 KANJI STUDY DAY 77: 771~780/1017

After doing today’s kanji study, all I have to say about them is… they look wayyyy too familiar. What I mean is, I appreciate that these are also, like the last couple of days, not too complicated in terms of strokes/stroke order, and pretty simple to read and write but… so many of them look like so many OTHER kanji that I have studied previously, I know that I’m gonna get confused with these in particular..

For example, I am totally going to confuse 沙 with 砂, 坑 with 攻, etc…

Well, practice makes perfect I guess so let’s get to it.

  2. 邦 ホウ くに home country, country, Japan
