Sucks when I have super early level stuff that I get wrong right before burns damn those irregular readings. Anyone got those kanji??? Care to share which ones?
Still waiting to come up on my first burn… I’ve been wondering how much old stuff I’ll space out on.
I don’t mind getting stuff wrong, I still need to learn it. I hate when I put a correct synonym and it’s “wrong” though, if anything I know those ones better because I know the meaning, not a specific English analogue. Oh well, I doubt there’s an easy solution to that.
There is a easy solution! Just add your own meaning. Even in your language, why not.
I have to tell myself that burning the Kanji means nothing if I can’t articulate it. But yeah, it feels bad to be certain you know something and then space on it.
It never happened to me right before a burn but I always have issues with kanji like the kuny’omi for音 , the ony’omi for 歩 or the reading for 死亡. I never seem to remember wether they end with a う or not.
Yeah that works for next time, but by then you’re already back at guru.
I always tend to miss whether it’s asking for the meaning or the reading, especially if the reading is a single kana. I just type too fast sometimes T.T
Use the Override script. It’s a lifesaver.
I think this is the appropriate time when the ‘ignore script’ should be used (and not abused). The Tsurukame app has an on the spot synonym correction/addition too. I’m not making WK a typing accuracy contest either, shaky trains and big thumbs are already a challenge.
This is one of the reasons I recently started using an anki deck for my kyoiku kanji. I drill myself on a minimum two readings each, and whether or not they are on or kun. It might be redundant SRSing them on top of WaniKani but the reviews only take a few seconds each, so not long in the grand scheme of things, and I feel the relatively small amount of extra effort has improved my use of them massively. I have all the time in the world to get to level 60 and the way things were going for me before, I’d be messing up on kanji from 8 levels ago when trying to read material, so something had to change.
This is by no means a recommendation for what others should be doing, just my own experience. Perhaps starting to learn how to write the kanji could be a good system for you (and also fun).
yeah i’m having one of those days today, i put double “k” in “eight days”, typing ru as ri when its clearly right in front of me, and several other stupid mistakes that knocked me down to Guru on a few things that i know!
i can’t use the scripts on my laptop so i have to suck it up and think ok that is one i WILL remember next time!
have started using the Tsurukame app on the phone and that has been a lifesaver with the fat finger typo’s.
Why can’t you use scripts, if you don’t mind my asking?
So tempting… I’m scared I’ll abuse it though. Maybe.
It’s my work laptop, blocks from downloading anything onto it unfortunately
How do they block you from installing browser add-ons? Seems a tad excessive.
Definitely the kanji with only 1 vocab. Just off the top of my head, 坂、是、昆. When there’s only 1 word to apply it to (itself) you haven’t seen it at all in 4 months you’ll find that it’s quite hard to remember
I failed the burn on 々 because it asked for the reading, and I had completely forgotten that it even had a reading.
There are ways around this but they are doing the right thing… The laptop is not his property… And you can get into a heck of a lot if trouble with your own it group… Stuff that isn’t a big deal can quickly become a problem on a corporate network that you’re just a user of.
You’re doing the right thing… Just study on the phone or tablet and you can still override if you need to and add synonyms.
