JLPT Level 2 Kanji Dictionary

This dictionary aims to provide a concise reference tuned for all the kanji characters and vocabulary which appear in the pre-2010 Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) level 2 examination. The document features 1000 kanji entries. Below is an example entry.


Another version available features the animations from embedded right into the document. I’ve successfully viewed the animations in Acrobat readers 9.2 and 9.3 with Japanese language supported installed and I have Flash Player 10 on Windows. The animation does not work with MacOSX native pdf viewer and also do not seem to work under Ubuntu. When viewing the document Acrobat will first prompt for permission to allow embedded content, after a small delay a the animation like the one below should appear in the document. Single clicking on the character should start the animation. After allowing the embedded content there is normally a slight delay, scrolling the document or clicking around seems to speed things up. If you don't see a Kanji character in top left for each entry it probably means your viewer does not support embedded Flash content.
