Kanji kanji...hic, I'm really tired to study Kanji. Can u guys recommend me some ways to learn 2000 kanji in 3 months?
I don't know if it's possible to learn 2000 kanji in 3 months, but it's possible to learn kanji quickly if you use spaced recognition. Anki is the best software to use for this method.
Just for contrast, I found spaced learning to be the least effective method. I'd get shown the same card 20 times in a row, and it'd be forgotten by tomorrow. Heisig worked because it "glued" the kanji together memory-wise.
Were you just looking at the cards or were you writing them?
Were you learning them in isolation or in context?
download an app like Anki (free on android, use the web version on iphone www.anki.net) I was able to learn them all in 5 months with anki (including stroke order and reading) you may be faster cause I didn't learn consistently every day. oh and a tip from me do NOT learn the readings of single Kanji. I know everyone is saying to learn them but don't. What you need to know are the words not the on and kun readings. learn that 誕生日 is read tanjoubi and you will automatically notice how 日 has the reading bi here and 生 the reading jou. No need to look at the readings beforehand, just learn the words and you're good to go because you'll automatically learn the readings too. Good luck!Kanji kanji...hic, I'm really tired to study Kanji. Can u guys recommend me some ways to learn 2000 kanji in 3 months?
