This study investigates use of kanji learning strategies of students from non-kanji background. Questionnaires on kanji learning strategies were administered twice (after 4 months and 1 year following entry to the course) to 100 Malaysian students in a preparatory course for Japanese university. This study aims to analyze how the use of kanji learning strategies change as students' learning period of kanji extends, and to determine the characteristics of strategies used by students achieving high scores in an exam. Statistical analyses of questionnaire responses reveal that 1) as students' learning period extends, the use of strategies for organizing kanji increase and this tendency appears stronger among those who achieved high scores in the exam, 2) while the use of `repeated writing' strategy decreases, the use of other strategies for memorizing and compromising increase, 3) a `using kanji as often as one can' strategy is used frequently and continuously by students who achieved high scores. The result also suggests a possibility that the knowledge for organizing kanji introduced in the tutorials has an influence upon students' choice of kanji learning strategies.
