Learning Kanji with Prof. Poop.
In 2017 a new Kanji Drill with the name "Unko Kanji Drill" was published where all sentences include the word poop (yes, really every sentence includes the word poop).
Unko is the Japanese word for poop and kids like that word so you can guess that "Unko Kanji Drill" is now the most popular book for learning Knaji.
It is said that the most efficient way to learn Kanji characters is to write them repeatedly.
However, as writing the same characters over and over again will become boring for children it is understandable that they lose their concentration.
The Unko Drill Series was produced with the aim of overcoming such problems when learning kanji.
The goal was to create a kanji drill that makes writing fun and it can be said that the goal was reached as it became one of the most enjoyable study book in Japan.
Adults may tend to avoid the word "poop", but for children, it is a word that makes them feel excited, a magical word that makes them happy just by saying it.
Learning doesn't have to be boring. Let's try that more and more children will change their minds about learning and go to their desks with smiles on their faces.
