Hi, so I realise this doesn’t quite fit into the educational format this site has been built with but I just want to point out the elephant in the room. Wanikani has been tremendously useful in aiding me in my studies of Japanese. The amount of vocabulary included in the course allows me to learn Kanji at a higher pace and also helps me see how to construct words. Despite being low level still, I am already starting to spot some patterns. This wouldn’t have been possible without daily practice and Wanikani succeeds at making this an enjoyable experience rather than a chore. I definitely learned Kanji thanks to Wanikani rather than my class textbook.
One thing that became obvious very quickly is despite being able to recognise kanji and read them, I am struggling to write them, especially if I am trying to translate from English. On Wanikani you always start with a character but when writing, unless you are copying something, you start with pronunciation or word in a different language.
I feel like Wanikani can create a different SRS stream which will display a word in English and/or pronounce the word already learned in standard Wanikani set, and user needs to trace the characters by hand.
This would complete the kanji experience and cover all bases.
Would love to see something like this and would even consider paying extra.
