Not too surprising, as you said, with the technical limitations. But even so, I probably wouldn’t classify game text as a “serious” context, so it wouldn’t surprise me to see it in a modern game.
That’s true. But it is my personal favorite context
this might be quite a stuptid question, but whatever
I have been focusing a lot on Kanji way more than on vocab… and surely I am getting some difficutlys because a lot of vocab have a diffrent sound than just the kanji… And well I just thougth if I know the vocab I know the kanji, so maybe it is better to have my main focus on the vocab insted
Or do you see any downside to it? thanks in advnaced
The way I see it is that if you just read manga, news, play games, books etc. you will encounter the kanji you learn here in a vocabulary form, and in doing so learn them by just doing things you enjoy. Doing this will help you remember the various vocabulary easier than to just “focus” on one aspect or the other here on WK.
As much as I love Wanikani I do only see it at a supplement to my main source of learning japanese which is through reading, listening and speaking. And atleast when I do that, remembering vocabulary comes naturally and a lot easier than to just remember words that pop up here from time to time (this helps too ofcourse).
A great website is satorireader.com, I highly recommend it for easy reading, and vocab learning.
Thank you so much that looks amazing, I was acutally looking for something like this for a while now
Will take a closer look as soon as I get home
what is discord?
okay, so I have an account now - what do I do next or what it there to do?
Well, actually I don’t know
Discord is a little bit like the modern version of IRC . So, usually you would know people first you then like to chat / talk with on discord.
As for WK, there is now official channel. But I think there might be some unofficial channels. Some of the book clubs have a regular discord meeting as well. E. g. the yotsuba weekly live readings.
Sorry I can’t be more helpful… maybe someone else can help out as well
Do you mean no official channel?
You could join the Speaking practice via Discord server.
At least that’s what I’ve come cross in the forums here. According to the following to discussions there is no official WK discord channel.
There are channels / servers (not sure what the correct term for discord is…) that are run by WK community members though. The ones still active seem mainly (but not exclusively) to be study related. This is what the forum search gave me:
Does this help?
EDIT: now I’ve got it Yes. I meant there is no official channel. (completely misleading typo in my previous post… sorry) Thanks for clarifying.
yeah, the WaniKani team has somewhat condemned the use of discord as part of the WK social life because they have no way to moderate anything and don’t want to be held responsible should anything go wrong. but they can’t really stop people from joining servers, so essentially you just do it at your own risk. but yeah, they certainly do not have their own official server.
hi! my new person question is: what the heck are userscripts and do complete beginners need it?
They alter the functionality of WaniKani in various different ways, from cosmetic to… allowing cheating. No, you don’t have to use scripts - vanilla WaniKani works perfectly well - but their intention is to customise the experience.
If you look at the The New And Improved List Of API and Third Party Apps, you will find a short description for a lot of the scripts available.
How do you change the user description? Mine is no longer up to date, and I only remember the old way from the old site layout.
On the main wanikani site, you can go to settings->profile->about, there’s a textbox there where you can edit the description.
Thank you! I wasn’t aware the forum page and the main page gave different options. Big help!
