I used to do kanji to keyword and I could recognize them fine if I came across them in text but the keyword to kanji is good for writing stroke order but like I said the keyword doesn’t pop right into my head like it did with the other way of doing kanji… any advice? Now I’m just going through J-E sentences as I mentioned before, soon to hit the 1000 mark, but I’m wondering if redoing RTK at this point would be beneficial in any way, seeing as I’d already forgotten most of what I had learned from it.

Since you have to go back to #200 anyway, I’d take a look at my RTK Mod deck since it already has all the Japanese keywords. But if you are the type of person who wants to finish all the rtk first, that is completely fine, and the end results will be fairly similar. Has anyone else tried the memrise program? obscure (231) “It’s being really helpful for me to do it, ’cause I can do more and more reviews every day.”, But if you are reviewing everything in two places you are also making the SRS algorithms less efficient (since the point of those algorithms is precisely to need as few reviews as possible…). Thanks for the response! If I don’t want to study long, I don’t. i’m worried about what will happen when i get to the kanji from the end of the book where i left off. I am using your RTK as a reference for my own deck. Thanks for rephrasing it for me! How long after the sentences did you start to speak?

No, you use them since they are very beneficial in the short term (~1-2 years). But for now, this is being good. The Japanese keywords I added (or that you will add) are common Japanese words that have the specific kanji in them. When I used these years ago before I came to japan they were really good at giving me a kind of small base and now with over 100 hrs of beginner/lower intermediate podcasts to listen to should be good. My short-form/casual speaking is def. Once you have learnt the Kanji from the keyword (as in you are able to write the 2000+ Kanji) can you change the order they are shown in Anki such as to show back (keyword) and front (kanji) alternatively? I just wanted to ask one more question about RTK. Name Ankit or (Ankit) means Conquered. ; According to a user from Arizona, U.S., the name Ankit is of Indian (Sanskrit) origin and means "The Ocean". Dictionary, Rikaichan on Heisig’s Kanji Index, Google, chiebukuro, etc. The “び” in “月曜び” stands for 日, which happens to be read as “び” in that particular compound (by the way, the compound is 月曜日(げつようび), which means Monday (the day of the moon)). However, do whatever keeps you motivated, and if that is doing both together, then go for it. I might have missed the answer to this question but, do I have to learn the kun and on readings? Probably, when my Jalup RTK deck reach the same level as “Remembering”, I’ll stop doing it and keep up only with Anki. it wasn’t the shoes, it was you, all along!” so it’s kinda for me like, “see, anki helps, but your brain is learning the kanji and the language, and anki is just a (very) helpful accessory.” So don’t forget to just enjoy the process and thank your brain for being such a biological miracle. I looked for that kanji and get stuff like nightwatch which doesn’t really help and since I don’t get what he specifically means it’s hard to construct a story or set it apart from other Kanji which might have a similar meaning to it (or not depending on whether my understanding is correct) Could someone pleas explain this keyword to me? I CAN make the cards show up in a random order when reviewing, but then I’d end up reviewing cards I haven’t actually “studied” yet. What was your method? While regular books also contain important vocabulary and grammar, nothing matches the order and clarity of a beginner textbook. Q:  How long should I do reviews for on kanji? You could turn session limits off and pay attention to when you particularly feel like quitting and set it for something less than that, you could try different numbers and see how they feel, or you could just leave it at 10 if that’s working for you. I can now say I feel comfortable saying I know 500. Here are the “new” numbers so far: I haven’t personally used it, but it looks promising based on what I’ve seen, and the people that like it. Do you know why that happened or how I can fix it? Give them time. See English/Japanese keyword Is that what we’re expected to do at the beginning, only read things with furigana?

Sorry to ask a stuid question, but because you have now uploaded your RTK deck, is it still a requirement to purchase the actual RTK books? – You would be facto be spending your energy memorizing the keywords themselves, which are ultimately just a temporary crutch (and note that while it might seem at first sight that you would then at least know a “meaning” of the Kanji, the keywords only correspond to meanings in lots of cases, not always). Required fields are marked *. What would my senpai recommend? You can just go to http://kanji.koohii.com (Creator of RTK made it) and look at the top rated stories other people made, It’s just a lot easier. And you tag along the “actual” kanji?

Unfortunately, you don’t know which ones you don’t need to know until you get to a pretty far level. After that I’ll get into grammar and then kanji using this guide. Also, don’t even consider doing your reviews on that website (they offer a SRS of their own). With it not all converting to kanji or such, it’s just that the IME creators didn’t want to add it. And you really should be using Adshap’s deck linked above, which includes both Heisig’s keywords and Japanese keywords on the front side. It also has multiple choice questions, which I know you don’t like, but that help me review. I also started Anki when I already had a good background of Japanese and went straight to Japanese. While the J-E sentences are less important, which is why using a textbook with preset sentences is recommended , I fully believe the J-J sentences need to be from your own input. I’m not the worst at the techy side of things but sometimes i do get stumped by anki! I am interested to know other people experiences with RTK in anki. This is because many times the Heisig keywords don’t capture meanings perfectly(and sometimes not at all…), so as you start learning actual words it becomes better to use those to remember the Kanji. However, you may find that once you’ve finished your Anki-prescribed reviews, your remaining time is best used toward other forms of study. See Part 2. If you were right, hit space/3 (I sometimes give myself leniency if I miss a tiny stroke) What can I say, it works favorably, so again, many thanks for sharing your methods. But you need to abide by what I talk about below if you want to get the most out of RTK 3. graft (313) The main price I would expect someone to have to pay for this is that the stories would have a little more trouble setting in (since like you said, they are linked), but you’ve already been repeating your stories for a while now anyway, so that should help with that…. Thanks! The name Ankit having moon sign as Aries is represented by The Ram and considered as Cardinal . The English keywords are only approximations by Heisig made to fit in -as much as possible- with as many words that contain that kanji as possible.

I’m currently doing around 50-60 a day. You’ll catch up to it in no time.

I had been doing it over and over again until I got it right, which I guess is the cause behind me getting frustrated, But it seems like that’s the best way to remember it, but obviously it’s not working for me. I’m going to try it with the textbooks I have as well but I’m also reading a book in japanese (aka translating all the kanji I can’t read) I’ve read in english and was wondering if you think it’d be helpful to put those sentences in as well. So, correct me if I’m wrong but this would be a good setup to use: I’ll be posting this deck probably this upcoming weekend, so if you can wait, you might want to use that. And now you can finally start reaping the benefits from it! improving quite well and I try to speak and text as much in japanese with my girlfriend and friends as I can. I’ve been doing keyword -> kanji for quite a while now, and since mixing it in with sentences have started to get quite a bit of confusion regarding the keywords, to the point of thinking of switching to kanji -> meaning. It would feel a little weird going through it all again, as I have all my kanji in box 5 on the reviewing the kanji website, plus around 700 sentence cards – but I’ll give it a shot anyway. I actually did this about 2 years into my studies when I first discovered Anki. metaphor (308) Gender : Boy. cleanse (149) I’m sorry if you answered this question already, but I still don’t get it. I might be mistaken, but I think what he means is when encountering them in the wilds outside the Anki deck. You downloaded the Full RTK 1 + 3 pack. I do recommend AnkiMobile (the dedicated anki iPhone app.) For example if the kanji is 朝 you might choose the Japanese keyword word あさ which means morning. What does Ankit mean? In the morning, he’ll bring it back, so don’t worry.”. I’m glad this site has been able to help you out. It is to remind you what keyword is actually proper. Oh my god~! It’s not really fixed. Feel free to share this method. You learn the readings of a kanji naturally through sentences (and all other immersion sources). The steps I take are: 1) Create a new empty Anki deck called “RTK review” (you could also use your integrated deck, but it needs to be separate from the JALUP RTK deck). We start with only RTK, and once we’re done with that, or a good way through we start on J-E ?”. Will it help ? This method is actually time consuming though. Try to write out the kanji by hand, mind, or finger. Gender Masculine. chair (206) Of course that is what is supposed to happen, since you will be able to read kanji just fine and keywords and stories are irrelevant. Before you read any further, check out the Anki website which provides tutorials on the basics, and even has videos taking you through the mechanics of how to use the program. At first, I’ll use Hiragana for the words that I don’t know the Kanjis, and, when they are due again in a time that I already know the Kanjis for them, I’ll edit them including the Kanjis. Hope this helped, otherwise ask again! sly and trentbent are the same person. Over time, I’ve learned to really just concentrate on just the hirgana portion of the example word. Don’t do them together. English words for 安危 include safety, welfare and fate. Since RTK 2 provides keywords, it wouldn’t hurt to use. Keep it up! (though, I think my English is no where near fluent and I’m still working on it,too :( ) That fact does slow me down a lot because all of my materials are written in English. Ankit Raaj - Ankit Raaj is an Indian television and film actor and model. Posted this but then thought I should do it as a reply :D, Thanks so much for the reply. I just memorize the way the kanji is written and its intrinsic meaning, but how do I know how to pronounce it? In Japanese, "~ san (~さん)" is a title of respect added to a name. Going forward you’re definitely better of reviewing all your cards in the same place, I’d say, and I really recommend Adshap’s deck. Thank you. By isolating this element, and doing it in a storytelling aspect, it makes the whole kanji acquisition process leagues easier. There is nothing surprising in this: both names have the same origin or the same numbers of numerology. So with your example with the Japanese keyword ぼう険 and kanji 冒 (English keyword: risk), you aren’t learning the word 冒険 (adventure) now. Even though you say that… How would I ever understand the pronunciation, even in context unless, say, I was only reading things that had furigana above every word? Wouldn’t that “kind of” be time consuming and even might be confusing if you unintentionally mix up all radicals and primitives with your Kanji reading and compound and what not? So if you always do something until you get tired of it and then stop, you’ll remember it as it feels when you’re tired of doing it and be less inclined to do it again. Any answer would be so much appreciated! Basically, should I use anki to review kanji before I’ve finished Heisig, or use the heisig guide on its lonesome until I’ve finished 2000 in there, and then review them on the modified deck? I found that having your JE cards looking exactly like you want takes time to figure out(for instance, you might want to figure out how to use the furigana and text to speech plugins, or how to go about adding pictures), and this kind of thing is better handled before you are going all out on the sentences. What is wrong with that? I didn’t know anything about RTK Lite, but it looks like it is the 1000 kanji for the JLPT 2? If even that hurts, at the very least, visualize writing out the strokes in your head. When learning a Japanese word you are trying to merge all three of writing, reading and meaning, which all feel very distinct initially, and at first you’ll find yourself being able to move in some directions in that writing, reading and meaning triangle but not others. Very useful little guide, thanks a lot. Sorry I have so many questions, and im sure you answer the same questions daily…. I know I have this problem where I’ll be reading manga and will encounter a kanji that I know I’ve covered in my RTK deck…but can’t for the life of me recall the meaning. I understand everything you’ve typed here so i’ve no questions, i’m not sure how far RTK Lite goes but do you have any opinions on it? Yes, you will not be as good at recognition as you see kanji in the wild. Already figured it out :) working good..ESP with golden week coming up I can rly focus on the book.told my girlfriend about it and she was pretty amazed by the concept and keen to see how I do :).

Many people say that the readings are very important while other say it will come over time. “By write from memory, I meant could you sit down and write off random Kanji by thinking of the keyword – but that was a silly question anyway.” This is where the extensive reading comes into play, huh? oh and also I have relatives and other close family friends that speak japanese and I have buddies in Japan who are willing to speak to me.
