After learning hiragana i decided to take the plunge and start learning kanji on wanikani.
Everything was working swimmingly for a few days, radicals, kanjis, all getting commited to memory…
…And then vocabulary started and I am getting absolutely crushed with a 15-20% of correct answers and that’s only really because of the vocabulary pieces that are identical to the kanji that goes with it. I’m not entirely sure why but I just can’t commit the spelling of each to memory. The meaning is typically fine, but somehow I can’t get into my head the alternative spelling(s) and end up answering something random.
Any advice for a newbie?
