abstract

This essay deals with the definition of ‘kanji competence’ from the point of view of the three main approaches to language in Japanese: shiru (to know), wakaru (to understand) and dekiru (to be able). After outlining competence, the essay proceeds to investigate how to carry on a comprehensive teaching process which takes into account: ‘who’ (are the learners), ‘what’ (they need to learn) and ‘how’ (to teach). The considerations presented here are based on the Author’s personal experience as a former learner, now reconsidered in his role as a teacher.
