Urgh, Flashcard…” you said…
“I’ve tried it and it didn’t work” you said…

Yes, it is the old, ordinary flashcard, but there’s some bit of detail which will create enormous difference when applied. It’s a psychology thingy,tehee…


1. Use your own list of words/phrase you want to memorize.
This will create a good foundation for your brain. Your brain will not memorize something which doesn’t seem useable/relevant. By learning words you saw on your book, your brain thought “Oh, I’ve seen the words in that book before, I didn’t know what it was, i need to memorize it so I’m able to read it later when I see it again”.

If you memorize other people’s list, your brain said “What is this list? Why do I have to memorize it??” and thus will not take it too seriously.

2. Write more than just the definition of words or the reading
This is the very important key point! Write the conjugated version of the word you found on the book, meaning of each kanji, describe the shape of the kanji, create a weird sentence that can relate to some of each word, etc

For example, you would like to memorize “歌手 Kashu: singer”
What you can write beside reading & meaning:
• 歌 uta: song
• 手 te: hand
• Singer hold mike on hand and then sing a song!
• Kardashian Sucks as a singer (Kashu)

Note Yes, we recognized that SUCKS is not SHUCKS. But note that you don’t have to find a 100% similar words, just 60 – 70% similarity would do as great to help you with memorizing, as long as you find the word & sentence make sense. Finding words with perfect similarity will be much harder than just to memorize it directly! _:(´□`」 ∠):_

3. Review your card everyday, and add new cards when you see fit
Key: Review EVERYDAY. Your brain logic: What you don’t use = junk and need to be erased from database.

Happy learning! 。゚✶ฺ.ヽ(*´∀`*)ノ.✶゚ฺ。
