Hints for Students of Japanese

I've been studying kanji for years. One of the best tools that I've found is mule with EDICT and edict.el. I load the top stories for the Nikkei Shimbun into mule from the web and rapidly get the readings for the kanji that I am unsure of. I also find it useful to print the text out on paper in a large font size so that I can write the readings of the kanji above difficult kanji. To increase the size of the font, I use the -V option of psconv.
