Ive noticed in the recent levels that the kanji and vocabulary I learn in Wanikani takes me sometime to identify on signs or if im reading but if I’m doung the reviews its easier to remember. How can I overcome that?
The reason for this is likely because you get used to the way WK is displaying it to you and that’s how you’re remembering the vocab/kanji. Honestly the best way to overcome this is to keep reading, the more you encounter them while reading the more it will stick.
As with any vocabulary/kanji/grammar structure, the single best way to get used to seeing it is to read a ton, and to keep encountering it in the wild. You may have learnt the stuff, but you need to get used to seeing it actually used in a context.
This is the same thing that happens if you meet someone in a school/office setting, and get used to seeing them in their office/school outfits. Then, if you bump into them on the street for the first time, it can take a few seconds to recognize them.
How do you overcome that effect? Bump into them on the street more often (aka yes, keep reading).
Have you seen the font randomizer? You can get a bit more surprising variety with it.
