Some kanji can have readings or more and that’s an awful lot to remember AND remembering which particular contexts and words takes which reading is very troublesome. For that, the deck “Remembering the Kanji writings ” is excellent. Before I hsisig through RTK, I trk probably familiar with around of the most frequently-used kanji. Working through the deck can be time consuming, but the pay-off is worth it.

Hi Micah, you really put in alot of effort here. The method requires the student to invent their own stories to associate the keyword meaning with the written form. There is only one suggestion that comes to mind.

Thanks for telling us to become familiar with Anki, saying it’s really easy, and then not telling us how to actually do it. Thanks for your comment: Shortcomings to the system The system itself has a few disadvantages which are worth mentioning, even though in my opinion they are crushingly outweighed by the advantages of this system.

All the kanji are analysed by components—Heisig terms these “primitives”—which may be traditional radicalsother kanji themselves, or a collection of strokes not normally identified as independent entities.

This can be a daunting task to contemplate, and this is only for the worse since as far as I know, this system will not be effective if it is interrupted.
