Having trouble learning new kanji

  1. The easiest way is reading a lot of native material, but you need to have at least basic grammar knowledge in order for that to be comprehensible, so it depends on whether or not you already learn grammar outside Wanikani.

  2. Use mnemonics. If Wanikani mnemonics don’t work, try using others like KanjiDamage, or make your own mnemonics.

  3. Use Self-Study Quiz Script to drill all the lessons outside review time.

For me, it’s reading a lot of native material that works the best, but your mileage may vary of course.
