Kanshudo usefulness level provides an indication of how useful any Japanese word is for you to learn. Levels go from 1-12, with 1 being the most useful. Levels 1-5 include the 10,000 most useful words in Japanese, and can be studied directly from our Most useful words in Japanese collections. Read more about Kanshudo usefulness level in our comprehensive guide, How to prioritize Japanese words to study. Your default setting here can be changed from the ACCOUNT page.
Kanshudo classifies all kanji into seven rings, based on frequency and usage in the JLPT. The rings are used to create your Kanji Mastery Score and personalized Kanji Wheel . Use this option to select words containing only kanji in specific rings.
