There’s just too much of them per lesson, with redundancies like having a separate items for suru verbs with the suru and without it, or フランス人 and アメリカ人, that the amount of reviews become overwhelming as levels progress. As someone who had studied Japanese before starting WK, I found it really frustrating not to be able to choose what vocab I wanted to learn. Like I already can read things like 火曜日 and 中学校 really well, and because of WKs random lesson ordering there’s no way to avoid words you already know.
I’ve heard people say “it just reinforces the kanji” but there’s so much vocab that unless you do it every day, reviews can easily pile up into the hundreds. I end up not finishing reviews and then end up not getting to words that I really do want to learn.
I’ve started using the reorder script and just doing kanji and radicals on WK and then doing an Anki deck for vocab, but I wish I could just do it all in one place.
I know that the Kanji mnemonics are built upon the radicals, I’m not arguing for skipping those. I just feel like there should be like a checkbox on the vocab page so you can take off words you don’t want to learn
(Someone please tell me there’s a script for this )
