So I’ve been using Wanikani for a while. I’m taking it slow but having fun. However, there’s one thing that always trips me up and that’s when a kanji has many common readings. Specifically, it’s remembering which reading is used for the vocabulary word.
The worst offender for me is 日. Sometimes the reading is にち, sometimes it’s か, sometimes it’s じつ, sometimes it’s shortened, and it’s always a problem for me. 月 is another bad one, trying to remember if it’s げつ or がつ. There are obviously mnemonics to help, but I’m still having a really tough time remembering which reading I’m supposed to use for each vocab word. I’m wondering what you all do to remember which reading to use for these kinds of Kanji when they appear.
