When you are reviewing Kanji, do you consciously parse the radicals and get to the meaning? Or do you comprehend the entire kanji as a whole, and trigger off of that?
I am mostly only reviewing the radicals during the lesson and the first one or two reviews, and then recognizing the kanji on sight after that. My worry is that every once in a while a Kanji pops up and I completely blank and all I see are the radicals and I have to try to recall from that. Since I don’t go through that process every time, it can be hard to recall.
On top of that, I’m worried that I am learning the font as much as anything. Might be time to setup the font randomize script.
So do you force yourself to review the radicals, chain that to meaning, then reading?
