There’s Torii know!
There are already a handful of SRS vocab learning tools out there, speaking of Anki, Memrise, iKnow, HouHou and so on… They all have their pros and cons, however, none of them work in the same way as WaniKani does.
That’s why I’m considering developing a new vocab learning application as part of a university project. But first I’d like to know if there’s even demand for such an application.
Here are my thoughts on a WK-like vocab learning app so far:
Vocab database: Core 10k.
Just like WaniKani, there will be a leveling system.
As you’re making progress and level up, more lessons will come available (50-100 words per level).
Audio and example sentences will be available as well.
You are shown a Kanji/Kana and have to type in the correct meaning in english (like WaniKani)
you are shown an english word and have to type in the corresponding Kanji/Kana (like KaniWani).
The way the SRS works will also be very similar to WK.
-) add your own vocab words
-) add notes and additional example sentences
-) whatever else may be needed…
Would you use such an application for vocab learning?
- YES, but only if it’s free!
- YES, I’d pay for that! (less than $3/month)
- YES, take all of my money!!! (comment your credit card details below)
- No, the existing learning tools are sufficient.
