Now I’m just embarrassed that I posted this topic at all. But I learned from it, so that’s good, I guess.
Perhaps because I’m a teacher, I do want to stress that I’d never design anything assuming that it’d get me to fluency by itself. When it’s time for me to practice production, I fully intend to do lots of talking and writing! I’m just trying to think of ways I can strengthen that process the way WaniKani has strengthened my reading.
I don’t know of any, unfortunately. My verbal issues might be ADHD rather than dyspraxia. My dyspraxia usually manifests as difficulty with perceiving how far away objects are from me. Basically, I’m extremely clumsy.
My sister has dyslexia, but I don’t seem to have that. I’ve never had characters in any language switch places on me or anything. I do misread kanji a lot, but I think we all do that here!
Yeah, the mathematician in me has always struggled with translation not being an invertible function. I was hoping I could mitigate that, but I’m finally convinced that I was chasing a unicorn!
I’ve been making anime cards for a few months now. I fought them at first because the setup was a huge pain, but I have to admit they work well for when I know a concept but I can’t put words to it. And they’ve solved a problem on the other side of the coin for me as well: when I can put a word to them but I’m not thinking of the right definition of the word.
I’ve had a thought like that a lot: Bunpro would a much stronger resource if they randomized subjects, objects, verbs, and pronouns. From my own programming experience, though, I know that sort of thing is a lot more work retroactively than it would’ve been at the design stage. Personally, I’d be interested in helping in such an effort, but I don’t know enough to do it myself. Because I have the exact same problem: I subconsciously memorize sentences rather than things to say.
