how to expand your Japanese vocabulary 日本語の語彙力をアップさせるのには


If I would ask you “how can I expand my English vocabulary?” I wonder what your answers are.
I think most of people would probably answer reading newspapers or books.
On the contrary, if one was asked how to build Japanese vocabulary then the answer is most likely “to study Kanji” if he is a Japanese teacher.
I think it is very systematic because you can learn 4-5 vocabulary when you study one Kanji,
And also you can study Kanji step-by-step because Kanji books are sorted from easy to difficult ones.
