Abstract

The background of this research is the importance of mastering Kanji in learning Japanese since most Japanese transcriptions use it. However, the large number of Kanji characters makes it difficult for the students to understand it. This research is done due to the importance of mastering Kanji for Japanese language learners since almost all writings in Japanese use it. Kanji is one of the most difficult aspects for Japanese language learners especially for those who do not have a cultural background about it. This happens since they are targeted to be able to master 1945 Kanji characters. In addition, one Kanji character has more than one pronunciation. Thus, they find it difficult to memorize and use those characters. A big number of characters and the various ways of writing as well as pronouncing them make the students difficult in mastering Kanji. The objective of this researchis to find out the Kanji mastery level ofthe 5th semester students who are majoring the Japanese Education in the academic yearof 2015/2016. This quantitative research applied the descriptive method. The subject was 19 students of the study program. To select this sample, the purposive sampling technique was used. Data were taken from the scores of the students' Kanji test. The instrument of the research was an essay test which measures the students' abilities in writing the Kanji characters. Based on the research results, it is found that the students' mastery was in the "satisfactory" classification with scoreof 63,33.
