While learning vocabulary, I have tried a variety of apps like Memrise, Anki, Quizlet, etc. I am often troubled when faced by a card that has multiple valid answers, only one of which is accepted.
This tends to happen for English -> Japanese, but it can also happen for pronunciations. IIRC in Memrise, the questions are multiple choice, and the answers would sometimes contain more than one right answer (e.g., valid katakana and hiragana for a pronunciation). Naturally, the underlying system would only accept one of those answers, which has annoyed me quite a lot. Many of these apps do not have an override, so I’m forced to accept being “wrong”.
I have held off on KaniWani since I know this issue is going to be an even bigger problem. Due to the limited kanji we learn, we have a multitude of ways for expressing the same vocabulary (e.g., “society”, “first”, “girl”, “trip”, etc.) I know I can add synonyms, but it seems like it’ll be a pain.
I am certain many of you have faced this problem too. How did you overcome it?
