This is my first time posting. Be gentle with me.
I’ve been using WaniKani for some time now and I really enjoy it. I find it rather easy to learn kanji and the included vocabulary. My problem, though, is that I have a really hard time learning vocabulary outside WK. I’ve tried Anki and some other SRS systems, but the vocabulary just don’t seem to stick. The method of first learning a kanji and then learn vocabulary associated with that kanji works like magic. Trying to learn new vocabulary written in kana, though… Not so much…
Do you have any tips or resources for how to gain new vocabulary? Are there any “WK for vocabs” out there? I like the way WK forces me to type the words and not just recall from memory. But I haven’t found any good resource for that when it comes to vocabulary.
Help me, Obi-Wani Kaniobi (I do not regret that pun!), you’re my only hope.
