So, I’m at 11th level and after a short trip to Japan I lost the motivation for about a year.
A couple of months ago I tried to go through my 852 reviews, but, even though I remember part of it perfectly, the rest is extremely painful. I don’t remember the vocab (i.e. master-level), so I lookup the kanji. Then, it turns out I don’t even remember it’s radicals (i.e. enlightened-level), so it’s difficult to remember any mnemonic.
The problem is, I cannot really learn the vocab if I don’t remember kanji+radical, and, as they have high level, they doesn’t show up in the SRS often enough.
So, is starting from scratch the correct solution for me? Did anyone here have a similar problem and got through it?
