im currently starting out with wanikani and im still at level 1 and id like some feedback and possibly some tips.
What im having problems with is learning the vocabulary.
The english meanings themselves i can remember quite easily but i have alot of problems differenciating between On’yomi and Kun’yomi and when to use which one and i can really remember the hiragana writing of them. The mnemonics dont really help either because most of the time i find that they dont really have any connection to the actual word that the vocabulary means.
Also its really hard to differentiate between things like “size, big, great” and the above or below versions. Though thats probably due to not enough training.
Which brings me to the main thing. Do you and if so how do you learn the kanji inbetween reviews?
For me its always like for example:
First Vocabulary in review: 大きさ (oh that must be big or something) (which is wrong)
Second Vocabulary: 大した (oh that must be either big or great then which leaves me with great because i can remember that big ends with and い so i just pick that)
But the problem with all of that is that its gonna be just the same next time because i kinda just guessed.
Well whatever maybe i should stop rambling now. Do you have any tips or something for me? and how long does it usally take to finish the first level?
