So I’ve been doing wanikani for a little over a month now and just started using Kitsun a few days ago. I’ve been doing the 10k deck and I’m wondering if I should have all of the layouts active under Layout Filtering like I do right now. Seems like its making a lot of reviews but if that’s the best way to learn then I will keep it that way.
Nice to see you here! I agree that the number of layouts in the 10k set can make it go a lot slower than most others. I think it’s totally fine to turn off some layouts as long as you’re practicing them in other sets or in other ways. Personally, I would turn off the sentence comprehension sets. They’re pretty useful for sure, but you’ll hopefully be hearing/reading the words you learn in the set in other contexts anyways. The real advantage of that layout is the good translations here, but once again, not a huge deal if you turned it off.
Also, at the end of the day, I would just turn off whatever you don’t feel you’re up to doing. The goal of course is to keep on learning Japanese period, so it’s better not to make it a burden in favor of learning in the “best way.”
My opinion is that you should only focus on Meaning and Reading layouts and disable others. The rest of your time is better spent immersing to understand first-hand how the words you’ve learnt to recognize are actually used in real life.
Also I’m not sure about anyone else, but I seem to be having the problem in the deck where I’m feeling like a desync between the vocab I’m learning and the sentences I’m reading in that set. Might have to do with the vocab I hibernated.
