I’m considering learning stroke order when I’m doing lessons and I was wondering if that is a good idea or not. The reason I’m asking is because I have a seriously large amount of time available on my hands and I don’t actually really know what to spend that time on. I know that the reviews are going to pick up the farther I get in to WaniKani, but the amount of time I have is 4+ hours every day (except on very few days its 3 hours). So, I was wondering if learning how to write Kanji now as I go through my lessons would be beneficial for learning them, or if it would be a waste of time and I should learn how to write them after I reach level 60.
My schedule is this right now (along with grammar each day):
- Do all radicals lessons at once, 1/3 available kanji, and 20 vocab on my first day in a new level
- 1/3 kanji second day + 20 vocab
- 1/3 remaining kanji third day + 20 vocab
- 20 vocab and so on
What I was thinking because this still leaves me with a lot of time left after practicing grammar and reading, I would instead spend more time in my lessons going over the mnemonics and learning the stroke order. This in return would result in practicing writing Kanji every time it shows up in a review as well.
Just curious what people’s opinions are on this based on my situation. Would it be better to start now since I have the time to? Or wait until I know the Kanji. Either way I’m going to learn how to write it, I just thought since I have the time, and I also have a feeling it will help me learn the Kanji and not forget it.
Let me know if you think this will help me learn or just drag me down/ slow me down too much. Thanks.
