Adding Kanji to the Kanji drills

Asked 5 years ago

I'm really struggling to learn kanji on here with my normal method of learning (doing the lessons and then normal drills), and even though I've only had 2 kanji lessons I struggle with some of the readings. I'm learning kanji elsewhere, but I'd like to streamline my learning here- I tried adding a couple of words to my kanji drills but somehow just added them to my vocab drills, so I'm not being drilled on the readings, just the meaning.

Is there a way for kanji to be automatically added to kanji drills after each kanji lesson? This would make a lot more sense and make it much easier to quiz myself on those kanji.

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

In the kanji lessons, the large kanji characters should be clickable to take you straight to the dictionary entry for that kanji. From there, there should be an "add to drills" button which would add the kanji to your kanji drills.

I also struggled with kanji. For me, the practice sheets helped me remember the kanji. If you're in a lesson there should be a practice sheets button at the top. From there you can search the lesson's title (ex. "Let's Get This Kanji Started") and the search results should include the practice sheet for the lesson made by nihongomaster staff.

I write down the kanji a few times in the practice sheet and cover up the on'yomi and kun'yomi and try to see if I can recall them. If I struggle with an on'yomi or kun'yomi I sometimes write it down a couple times. For some reason it's easier for me to recall what characters I wrote down. After I successfully recall the on'yomi and kun'yomi for all the kanji, I then wait 10 or 20 minutes and see again if I can recall them again. That helps it stay in my head a bit better for the next day. I also listen to the audio files for the kun'yomi and on'yomi.

I try to do a lesson every weekday, but for me those kanji lessons always end up taking 2 or sometimes even 3 days. It is hard learning kanji!
