Hi, I just started leaning radicals on WaniKani and currently am at level 1. I can say though that I was able to learn Kanji radicals and even a few basic Kanji faster than I expected. Back when I was learning Kana, I used to sit down and study every single day writing kana down over and over again. While I did this everyday, I sometimes forgot different characters, which just pushed me to write more.
When I started using WaniKani though, I noticed the less frequent reviews and quizzes I got on the content that I just learned. That confused me so I looked into SRS, I was able to understand the basic concept of SRS and what it’s meant to be used for. I do have a couple questions though, that I wasn’t able to find an answer to.
What are the time intervals that you guys wait until you review the content again (example: review after 1 week then review after one month).
I know a good amount of basic radicals, but I wouldn’t say that I have them fully engrained in my mind yet (I remember most of the time, but sometimes I forget the radical). Do I keep reviewing them first and then when I have them memorized I begin using SRS? (Basically how long after the content is exposed to me should I review it).
Is it possible to mess up SRS? For example when I was learning kana I would sometimes try and recall characters in my head (would that mess up my memorization of the topic)?
If something is fully memorized, should I still use SRS?
