I am here at level 2 for the second time. I remember the first time when radicals and kanji popped back for a review after a long time and I went ahead answering with the Vocab answers, many of which were different. The background colour was the way to understand, but still difficult.
I am loving WK but finding this a weak point: its difficult to distinguish between the On’yomi and Kun’yomi with the reading mnemonic’s.
Think about mountains talking to each other, calling each other by their names and adding the Japanese name-ender san (さん) to each of their names. “Hello, Everest-san.” "Oh hi, Fuji-san."
What are you doing going up into the mountains? You’re hunting for yams (やま). Go ahead, imagine yourself doing just that, climbing up the mountain (it’s hard work!) and then digging in the ground with your hands, then pulling up that sweet, delicious yam! Mmm!
Both entirely plausible in themselves, but which is which?
Does anyone have a good way to distinguish them generally for the road ahead?
About 山 - I also just want to share this: https://youtu.be/Vou_KYfiCCY
In case the Yam mnemonic wasn’t enough for you…
Its from the film 茶の味 (the Taste of Tea), a little bit strange but highly recommended.
