Hello all, I’m very new. I know that I will get past this but I’m having issues so I’m going to ask here and then read the rest to see maybe if it’s been covered.
Basically, I keep missing review questions because my brain automatically types the katakana sometimes, for example. It’s not always that but essentially I replace words with the thing I already know them to mean, or like that example.
The only one I’ve had this issue with this time was the radical “fins” which I keep calling “ha” or “hat” (because for some reason my brain is mnemomnicniczizing the fins shape into ha katakana. The other times for example “ground” I keep typing “one” or “ni” somehow I got over this but I just keep doing it with “fins”.
I don’t really know how to ask the question but essentially like how do I avoid this in the future? I think maybe I’m missing a step between learning hiragana/katakana (i got this down 100% in like 2 days) to where I am now, which is that I’m having almost 0 problem with this because I /know/ what it is but I keep using the wrong “phrase” for the WaniKani system. I do realize this is my own fault but I’m worried that it will become a real issue in the future with something I have yet to learn perhaps. Obviously there’s no point in worrying about it right this minute but I figured maybe I’d see if anyone has had a similar experience or any pro tips. Thanks for reading, sorry for the book, lul.
edit: also I was curious, sometimes it says “did you know this has multiple meanings” like on “prison” but when I look at the pop up thing there’s only the one meaning? I’m clearly missing something but I don’t know what (i’m clicking the “info” button at the bottom (maybe it’s an eyeball?) it’s in the middle ish.
