A friend yesterday showed me the kanji cards he is making by hand. And the other day I was reading Roy’s post about kanji cards. These two things combined with the JLPT results being released have got me thinking I should start revising my kanji.
I have my first set of Tuttle flash cards which I have never really used. The idea of making cards by hand just sounds ideal but I know I’d never get around to it – or complete it if I started.
But what I realised after studying for the 2 kyu JLPT is that while I can recognise far more kanji compounds I can probably write fewer kanji than when I was studying for 3 kyu. So, firstly I’m interested in revising the kanji I should know and being able write basic kanji without straining my brain for 2 minutes before each stroke comes to mind!
Back to repetition? The daily (as much as possible) diary seemed to help a while back. I guess it just comes to down to sticking at it, whatever way you do it.
