So, I basically never use mnemonics when learning a language because they just tend to distract me. Here in WaniKani, I’ve just used the silly names as an additional memory game since there’s not really anyway to not learn them (I tend to cheat with them, though). But now to my question;
Has anyone used the actual names of the radicals and learned them by adding them to the notes? Such as ⼉ (ひとあし), ⼫ (しかばね), 气 (きがまえ) etc… I suspect that the Japanese school kids learn these at some point as well?
