I’ve been thinking about this for a while; how do you guys remember your kanji lessons initially?
No matter how many times I read the descriptions, look at radicals included, and the mnemonics, when my first review comes up I get it wrong like a thousand times before it sticks.
Sometimes it’ll be the reading, others the meaning – if I’m really unlucky both. I even write down the kanji by hand (correct stoke order only fellas!) but still for some reason, I just can’t get my first few tries down.
There may be a few obscure vocabulary I have this issue with, but its mainly a kanji issue for me.
Maybe I’m just overthinking this and it’s the obvious answer: DUH of course you’re going to get them wrong the first few reviews they’re new kanji what lol
I guess a rephrased question would be: What do you guys do when you are learning new the new Kanji? Do you just get it wrong the first 8996408 times you review it until it sticks?
Sometimes I’ll learn a new Kanji on WK and feel like I’ve got no other choice but to go to the vocab sheet and see words using it first.
