After using WK for a few months consistently now (after using it on and off for years and finally resetting my account), I feel like I’m getting the hang of it and finally finding ways to tailor my experience so i learn best. And after that other tips thread… that went wrong last week, I thought we could all share our favorite tips and tricks that work for us to hopefully help each other. I found a bunch of study tips threads and beginnings tips, but not one as general as this.
Here are just a few of mine -
Making use of the “reading notes” section and writing any and all thoughts on that item that link it in my memory, or places Ive seen this kanji or word before. Ive lived in Japan so I have some vocab in the back of my mind already that sometimes i can link to kanji as i’m learning to help memorize quicker. or just taking a minute to write something, ANYTHING, that moment of pause may help you down the road.
Liberally adding synonyms to words to make sure they make sense to me. Sometimes i’ll add a synonym that is all of the meanings of the word together to make sure i remember multiple things, sometimes ill have to add little phrases to make sure i’m understanding the context of how the word is used. sometimes ill add jokes that stick in my head (like puppo instead of dog, thicc instead of thick, or simply ew instead of testicles)
This one is really obvious but, scripts. changed my life.
please share yours
