Anki . . . mmhhh


I’ve been searching and it seems anki is a very recommended option for improving in vocabulary, but for me its like very sturdy and hard to configure and to be honest i rather have a computer test me and make me type instead of me testing my self. So i’m trying to stick with KaniWani and see how it works, it would be great if you could share your thoughts on both KaniWani and Anki Decks.

Also, i’ve been trying to read some stories on Satori Reader, but so far really though. On what WK level do you think i shall start inmerzing even more in reading?

As far as grammar goes i’m at Lesson 15 on Minna No Nihongo


Honestly, you could start reading at any level. It’s not going to be fun, but you can definitely power through with a lot of dictionary look up. The question of whether you’ll understand anything you read lies more in your level of grammar than vocabulary. If you have a decent grasp of grammar, you shouldn’t have too much trouble even if your WK level is low. It’ll just be very annoying.

Personally, I don’t like Anki. Like you said, it’s just annoying to figure out, Wanikani is better imo. WK doesn’t have all the kanji though so at some point you might have to go back to Anki, but it won’t be for a long time.

I will say that grammar is not a problem in most of the books of articles. N3 level is enough to cover 90% of it, from grammar point of view. But kanji is a problem. Even at 30 lvl reading books will be very exhausting.

Well, if you didn’t know any grammar at all it’d be a problem. But once you do know about N3 level’s worth of grammar, the issue becomes kanji more, yes. It’s still readable, just annoying as hell to keep searching up stuff.
