Complementary study material for Kanji


#1

Hi everyone,

I recently started learning Japanese in my spare time. I have toyed with Duolingo and Human Japanese. And soon I will adquire Genki I to formalize my learning.

WaniKani seems like a great app to learn Kanji, and I’m tempted to buy the lifetime subscription. But before that I would like to know if you, as WaniKani users, depend solely on WaniKani for kanji learning, or if on the contrary you complement it with alternative resources. I understand that in any case personal practice and reading are necessary.

Thank you very much in advance.

I don’t practice kanji other places, but I am currently going through the Japanese Graded Reader set from White Rabbit Press.

I plan on doing Skritter once I’m done on WK. This will take a while. :sweat_smile:

It’s best not to rely on wani kani only.
Try some anki decks if you can.
that being said, i only use wk for kanji lol but i also dedicate the rest of my time to workbooks vocabulary building and writing.

For Kanji, the most important of my other sources is www.kanjipedia.jp

Personally, I almost solely use WK for kanji. Occasionally, I’ll run into kanji that aren’t covered by WK, but in those instances I just use a free online dictionary or app to look it up
