    I need your help Posted by: Wesley 1 month ago

    I need your help with something.

    I would love to hear your thoughts on how to make my kanji app easier for new users.

    What were some struggles that you had when you started learning throughout the website?

    What did you not understand?

    I want to make the interface a lot easier for new people.

    I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

    Oh! There's a way to add cards in bulk without having to go to each card and add them one-by-one? I must've missed it lol. Thank you!! I'll tell my friends!

    Perhaps a way to batch add new kanji cards to study? One issue I run into when trying to convince my friends to join me in this app is that they don't want to study the cards they already know, but if they have to add the ones they want to learn one-by-one...really it's only a minor inconvenience lol but I think it could probably help push people who are on the fence about switching to this app rather than others with similar uses.

      It's already there! On every card page you have insights. Here you can add and delete cards yourself. You have total freedom at mykanjiapp, you don't really need to study everything the app says.

    I like the app and website both very much. I've actually slowed down on other apps because of the understanding that this ones gives as opposed to just rote memorization. The main thing I would say to help improve is to add some way to review previous lessons through the cycle again to help keep the information fresh without having to restart the level (n5, n4, etc) again. I'm not just saying looking at the cards, but being quizzed on them again occasionally to help make sure it's deeply ingrained in our memories.

    THis program has been very helpful. I was so excited when I just went to Japan and FINALLY could read town names. I am excited to be back and progress to thenext level. The example sentences are really helpful. I wish we could listen to them spoken as well.

      I'm working on that and also adding them to card reviews.

    It would be really nice to see basic sentences used in everyday communication like Ajikisjin has mentioned. Also being able to practice kanji whenever we want, so if I wanted to practice writing the kanji cat a million times I could and see arrows showing which direction to go along with stroke order.

    I think enabling radical lessons by default would be good. Maybe lessons involving which radicals comprise individual kanji, too? It's hard to think of suggestions aside from the usage suggestion that's been mentioned several times. Even I'm not particularly sold on lessons about which radicals go into each kanji. This app is already the best I've seen so far. You've done a fantastic job.

    I think it works well. As I wrote to you in my last, a colored kanji will help us to figure out which line is the first or the second one in the kanji drawing. I know your app was born to teach the kanji world, but with Japanese phrases, we would learn how to use them.

    Personally, i believe the learning process is good as it is. if your intention is to help users practice letter alone. maybe integrate sentences and phrases into the learning, if you wish to help users practice communicating it? and the app/website tends to be very laggy. it makes it hard for me to choose the right options when reviewing. it would make the process much easier without the lag. but so far so good!

      Thank you for getting back; we are currently working on the sentence part, I will look into making the website faster. :) Your input really helps.

      Thank you! I hope to have fixed the laggy part today, I have rebuild the question part and it should be a lot faster now.
