Yeah, I just grabbed that to show there was a basis for it and that’s why they were trying to determine the mechanism for it. There are plenty of studies on this, but do you really need a study to know that you learn more in a relaxed state? What does your experience tell you?
The fact is, allowing yourself to make mistakes enhances learning, so it’s probably good to become comfortable with doing so.
I do allow myself to make mistakes. And then I fix them Unless I’m working on a browser that doesn’t have my extensions or I press enter too quickly, which happens some times.
People are getting pretty deep in the weeds on this. It really, really doesn’t matter! My approach is just slightly different than everyone else’s. I am still going to be fully literate in Japanese - I am well on my way.
I can promise you that the difference in my proficiency and the proficiency of other WK users is not going to come down to the Ignore button. It’s going to be depend on who is immersed in native material and is more committed to their literacy. This is such a small thing that makes WK more enjoyable for me. Don’t spend your time obsessing over optimization - just enjoy the process and you’ll get there.
