[JLPT grammar] I always get the kanji for 右 and 左 confused.

Today I am going to share the Q&A quoted from my JLPT N3 course!



I always get the kanji for 右 and 左 confused.
But now I have forced myself to memorize that 左 has an「エ」and 右 has a 「口」lol


[My Reply]

If you are not left-handed, you bring food to your mouth and eat with your right hand, right?

“手 hand” and “口 mouth” are “右 right”.

It’s hard to tell similar kanji apart, I know!
Not all kanji have tips like this, but if you are always confused by a particular kanji, find a way to remember it in an interesting way.


I hope my answer helps you. 😊

In the JLPT course, you can ask me any questions as much as you want.
I will teach you until you get it!
