As funny as " level 1 advice " as a title is to me, I would appreciate some feedback.
I want to really get into this but doing the standard way is setting me back.
Something I think WK doesn’t really touch on is different types of learning.
For me, it’s easier to cement something into my memory by actually writing it out.
Ive been sorta just brute forcing my way through lessons but the more that’s added on, the more overwhelming it is and the less Im actually remembering when the lessons done.
The thing is, I remember through the Tofugu guide on learning actual writing of kana and kanji is pushed to the side due to the emphasis of how important stroke order is.
Is it too distracting to go through wanikani WHILE trying to learn stroke order? Is stroke order truly that vital/will it lead to me picking up bad habits through hasty chicken scratch? How inefficient would it 10 or more levels down?
I didn’t go into wanting to learn japanese handwriting, but I dont necessarily avoid it.
For me its as simple as writing out:
上げる ( ‘-’ < dash or square in a designated color to que me in that its vocab )
to raise ( definition )
あげる ( hiragana )
to raise an aardvark( あ ) above my head ( mnemonic )
This method of note taking is directly correlated to how I learn pretty anything that’s info heavy… I’m assuming if anything, this is just going to just physically slow me down more than the average user.
