Each kanji and each non-kanji primitive is assigned a unique keyword.

Is there a way to disable the keyword to kanji cards? This method gave me solid progress, but there were also some terrible realizations.

The majority of the new kanji are introduced according to their traditional radical. There is only one suggestion that comes to mind. See the “minimum information principle” discussed in the Anki manual, and in the Heixig article the manual links to. The very well chosen examples wordsthe info about jlpt, jouyou, frequency really made me satisfied. I see they Kabji on your google docs spreadsheets, though? But I’m pretty sure that this doesn’t affect much when you learn with this deck, it’s the ALL in one kanji deck anyway: Thank you so much!

Also very rarely the keyword will be wrong but, again, this is something you can easily change. This practice takes around 20 to 30 minutes a day. It was quite embarrassing to not get them right in front of the class; that provided a good incentive to study.

I haven’t been looking closely at any of that other information because I haven’t been using it; I’d worry that it also contains a lot of hheisig. This index file is typically useful to seed flashcard heissig to help students using Remembering the Kanji.

I tried to remedy this first by creating my own flashcards for Ankia flashcards software based on spaced repetitionto review the kanji I had learned in class. Is that a beginner fault in anki?

This leads to confusion during study, which ruins the whole purpose of RTK. A visual study method for Heisig’s Remembering the Kanji Learn how to learn Kanji with Heisig’s Remembering the Kanji and a study method that makes the most kanij of visual memory.


Other than that, the deck is fantastic. And even more discrepencies come from this pack having entries that are not contained in the book.

Here, too, the kanji that has a sun above and an eye right below looking up at it has the meaning of risk. It uses mostly the same imaginative memory technique as Remembering the Kanji I, though some katakana kanjji prompted to be learned as simplified forms of their hiragana counterparts.

However, in my personal opinion, learning kanji outside jouyou list just doesn’t make sense, those kanji will take you a LOT of time to learn and even doesn’t help you much in reading general japanse. The difference between ‘affix’ and ‘post a bill’ seems to be the sort of thing that was edited in for clarity, as an example. One thing to look out for: The reality is that although I have fun with this method if this all heosig studying I did Geisig would get bored and quit. Unlike the first volume, this book does not rely on “imaginative memory”.

It was of huge help in my Kanji studies.

A kanji’s written form and its keyword are associated by imagining a scene or story connecting the meaning of the given kanji with heiaig meanings of all the primitives used to write that kanji. Another constant road block was the often cited problem that many of the Heisig keywords, the meanings you learn for each kanji on the book, are often very vague and quite similar to kanni other.
