So I have been around awhile and learned my kanji on this beautiful website and am currently at level 16. But know as I begin to experience troubles recollecting the meanings and readings of all the different kanjis and vocabs, I came to think that I might have been going at learning kanji the wrong way.
Up until now I have always done my reviews as often as possible and whenever I had a few minutes on my hands. I usually average about 90% of correct answers in the longer review sessions which is all fine and dandy. But recently I spend less and less time learning the mnemonics of a given kanji and just try to remember the damn thing completely without it. This is partly because I have less time for my WaniKani sessions than before.
So the natural effect of this is that I either remember the kanjis meaning on the spot or not at all.
As my percentage isn’t dropping dramatically, I question myself if that even is such a big deal. But I fear as the number of kanjis rise and it isnt about clear distinctions in meaning anymore but small nuances, that I am walking a very dangerous path doing it this way.
Should I take a break at progressing from level to level and spend more time on going back and learning the mnemonics again to ensure that Im not getting overwhelmed?
