Have you tried making and using flashcards?

When you study kanji, I recommend you to study the different readings (both on-yomi and kun-yomi) with different vocabularies (one word for each reading); for example, for 月, you study 月(つき), 月 (げつ)ようび and 5月 (がつ). If you just try to remember different readings, it will be almost impossible. がんばりましょう😇


Please let us know if you have any question :)

I am having a hard time on kanji.

Its hard when it doesn't have mnemonics and I was having a hard time interpreting them when two radicals are joined.😢
