2 month in, reached level 7 yesterday. I have a problem, maybe.
I would like to have only On readings be taught as the main reading for Kanji. Always.
How important is it to be able to remember which of the readings i know for any particular Kanji are the Kun and which are the On?
Because i mix them up in about half of the Vocabulary.
To be more precise, i tend to mix them up alot more in Vocabulary where the Kanji used
was taught with Kun as the main reading.
I understand that the reading taught with the Kanji is choosen based on usage.
By now i understand most of the rules about which reading for which type of Vocabulary.
I see a Vocabulary, i recognize the Kanji, i know what it means, i can type it in Japa… wrong reading again.
Its not that i dont know which reading to use its that i have the wrong type of reading learned for the wrong use of the Kanji.
The fact that Kun and On readings are taught wildly mixed with each other causes confusion for me and adds an unnecessary layer of learning to the whole thing.
If the reading for the single Kanji was always the On, that reading would be associated with the lone Kanji and i knew that it would be the On without having to put in extra active work to remember.
Having 2-3 Vocabulary after that, with the (most used) Kun reading(s), to learn and memorize those
and we have the same effect of association.
