Where to Learn Kanji
Something I am beginning to think of (even though I am only just finishing up Hiragana 4) is where I am going to to go in order to learn Kanji once I have finished all of the lessons Duolingo has to offer me in Japanese. I haven't really done any serious searching for a good website yet, but as I am sure they are out there, do any of you know of some reliable ones? I'm also asking this because I'm not hearing too many great things about how Duolingo introduces Kanji, or how it lets the learner use it. Now, the way I think of Duolingo's introduction to Kanji may be a bit biased (I myself have not yet tried it) because of all of the negative posts I've seen relating to it. I'd appreciate it if any of you could tell me how it really is!
The site I use for learning kanji is WaniKani! It's far better for kanji than duolingo imo
You will indeed meet a lot of kanjis in Duolingo, with not many explanations about how they must be pronounced here or there (i.e. not hiragana translitteration).
This brought me to despair and I lost my motivation to learn Japanese with Duolingo (although I am currently also learning with a Japanese teacher).
Fortunately, other users mentionned the Lingodeer app. I very strongly recommend it. I tried it and found it far more easier and progressive in teaching Japanese in general and Kanjis in particular. It gave me a new energy.
There is also a very nice set of about 2000 Kanji cards for the Anki platform. You should consult this link
Unfortunately for me, french speaking, the mnemonics for the kanjis are in english which doesn't help a lot.
I use WaniKani, which is free up to level 3. That's about 350 items right there. I think they have 60 levels, earning you a total of 2,000 kanji learned. They use mnemonics to help you memorize each kanji.
