For detailed instructions, see the Component builder how to guide.
To find any kanji, first try to identify the components it is made up of. Once you have identified any component, search for it in any of three ways:
  1. Draw it in the drawing area
  2. Type the name in the text area
  3. Look for it in the list
Example: look up 漢
  • Notice that 漢 is made of several components: 氵 艹 口 夫
  • Draw any of these components (one at a time) in the drawing area, and select it when you see it
  • Alternatively, look for a component in the list. 氵 艹 口 each have three strokes; 夫 has four strokes
  • If you know the meanings of the components, type any of them in the text area: water (氵), grass (艹), mouth (口) or husband (夫)
  • Keep adding components until you can see your kanji in the list of matches that appears near the top.

The Kanshudo Component Builder can recognize any of the 416 components listed in the chart below the drawing area. Tips:
  • Draw a component in the center of the area, as large as you can
  • Try to draw the component as it appears in the kanji you're looking up
  • Don't worry about stroke order or number of strokes
  • Don't draw more than one component at a time

My current mastery of this grammar:
LOG IN to view grammar mastery data
For an adjective that describes an emotion, the がる construction allows you to say that another person is feeling (or acting as if they are feeling) that emotion.
For example:
  • ずかしい I feel embarrassed ➜
    ずかしがる he/she feels/acts embarrassed
  • こわ
    い I feel scared ➜
    こわ
    がる he/she feels scared
In the case of
しい (want something) and 〜たい (want to do something), がる allows you to say what you think another person wants.
For い adjectives, the い is replaced with がる. For な adjectives, the がる is just added.
