New People Questions! ~~~<3 [Lost?! Confused?! We're here to help!]

I don’t usually plug my own app, but if you’re an Android user, you may want to try Flaming Durtles. It has an option to quiz on’yomi and kun’yomi separately. Meaning that during a lesson/review for a kanji item, you are asked separate questions to give both the on’yomi and kun’yomi, and the lesson/review isn’t complete until both questions (plus the meaning as usual) have been answered correctly. This is only for kanji, for vocab only the normal vocab’s reading is quizzed as usual.

Upside is that you’ve seen both on and kun by the time you see your first vocab for the kanji. Downside is that you only get a mnemonic for one of the readings, so you’re on your own to come up with a way to remember the other one.

Reading the last few posts in this thread, I was thinking this might suit your needs better than the normal WK system.
