Hey community !
I decided I’m going to spice up a bit the way I learn Japanese.
There’s this game, Trails of Cold Steel 4 which is only japan-released as of now, and I’m going to order it and play through it all.
This raises the question : How ?
It’s a really text-heavy based game, with dialogues some times light, some times really heavy with politics and stuff happening.
I make my mission to translate for myself everything before going to the next action. Translate every menu, every item name, and speak to every freaking pnj in existence and understand all the freak they want to talk to me about.
So I come here with a question, kinda, how should I approach it ? I’m going to be exposed to a very great deal of unlearned kanjis, vocab, and all. I need a way to quickly find what word is what, and if possible, I would like to be able to keep each vocab/kanji I get presented with somewhere with it’s translation so I can learn them and also don’t have to make the same research twice once I got the translation once.
I ask you community, which tools would you use ? What can I do to :
- Quickly find what kanji/vocab I am looking at.
- Finding the translation
- Add the kanji/vocab + translation somewhere so I can find it back easily if needed.
- In a perfect world, maybe even quizz myself with the knowledge found, wanikani style, so I can memorize most of it ?
I need you help.
