Just wondering if any has considered making (or wants to make) a little companion app which uses the wanikani data to improve listening recognition.
Here’s how the iKnow Rapid Choice game works. You listen to a Japanese word and have 3 seconds to choose the English meaning (multiple choice of 2). In 4-5 minutes, I can easily get through 100 words, so it doesn’t add significant study burden, but it does add quite a bit of value.
Later, the words more easily pop into my head and “sound right” when I’m doing wanikani reviews. I also notice the words more during Japanese conversation. So, it seems to be working (or I’m happily delusional).
A companion app like this for wanikani could make this easier. Wanikani has audio for all vocab, so the data is already there.
Vocab could be added automatically after it’s wanikani lesson, and the listening queue could be similar to the SRS levels (backing off with increased familiarity).
Missed items could be given extra attention to help avoid leeches, or other clever optimizations…
