I only have time to come on the site once or twice a week and I've been taking notes on all my lessons so far. But I'm in a bit of a pickle. I can remeber a single hiragana and what letters(sounds) they are an equivalant to but I can never remeber the words and their hirigan combinations. I haven't even gotten to the first quiz yet because I'm having such a hard time memorising words. I've tried flash cards and they helped a little bit but I was wondering about what methods others use so I can try them and see if they would work for me as well.
