I’m wondering if also japanese children have to learn radicals. Exept the elementary ones as mountain, river etc, I think the others are kind of useless. I have the impression that you just invented them. For people that don’ live in the States or belong to a older generation, as I do, a lot of them are hard to remember; I even have to go on Google to look up what you’re talking about. The result is that I make relatively more mistakes with the radicals than with kanji and vocabulary.
I appreciate WaniKani a lot (I’m at level 17), but sometimes I find the examples very hard to understand; they are too long and too difficult so that I don’t even try and that’s a pity because when I get the simple ones that I can understand it gives me great satisfaction. Does somebody else have the same problem?
