I’m planning a small review app that will to help me mimic how I expanded my vocabulary in other languages.
I would prepare a list of a few dozens words, pronunciation, approximate meaning in the context at hand, a sentence using that word in the that context. I would then go through the words and mentally recall their pronunciation, meaning. Then I would go through the meanings and recall the respective words and pronunciations. Bonus points if I recall the sentence. I would repeat this until recalling takes less and less time and is practically automatic. Then again with the same set of words some time later.
Have you used the same / a similar method to expand your vocabulary in other languages?
Are you using the same / a similar method while learning Japanese?
Do you think that using this method while also using Wanikani would be considered as cheating?
I wonder whether Wanikani’s SRS may not be intensive enough for my way of learning. What I mean is that perhaps I need more repetitions more often than Wanikani’s SRS, hence my idea to supplement my studying with a review app. Have you had a similar experience while studying with Wanikani?
I look forward to hearing your opinion and I’m especially interested to hear from those who have learned a number of languages and/or have reached advanced levels in Wanikani.
