Hi everyone, I’m new to WK and I’m trying to get a hang of things. One of the things I’ve been advised against by other Japanese learners is spending time learning kanji, especially focusing too hard on the readings. They state it’s better to just learn vocab and pick up on the readings naturally, so to speak. Then others say learning the barebone meanings of Kanji is useful. WK seems to have a fairly kanji-heavy focus. I’m actually okay with this.
But what I don’t understand is the readings. I’ve researched all over online and couldn’t find anything particularly specific or useful. Does WK only teach On’yumi? If so, why? Is On’yumi used more frequently? It seems to me that Kun and On are both used frequently. Why only learn On’yumi?
