I want to learn the readings of the kanji using Anki, but idk what to use. I hear a lot about something called Core 2k and I see it on Anki, but I don't see a book for it. How am I supposed to review flashcards on Anki that I've never seen in a book?
And is there any book out there that teaches you the readings of the kanji and only uses them in vocabulary words, not sentences and has an available deck on Anki?
You just start reviewing the core 2k/6k cards in Anki. At the beginning you'll fail a lot, but it'll get easier and easier as you make progress. You don't "need" to have "studied" them beforehand. Eventually they'll stick, especially when you start to see how a certain kanji is used with a certain style of vocabulary, always using one of the same few readings.
You could have done this even without RtK but it certainly helps quite a bit to have a "feel" for each kanji.
RTK 2 seems to do what you intend (I don't know if there's a RTK 2 deck, but it's probably included in the RTK ultima deck), but a lot of people don't do it, or maybe just the pure and semi-pure groups (beginning of the book), stating it's not profitable to be isolated from context at this point (so they just do the Core). I guess you'll have to read it and see for yourself (*cough downloadable cough*).
So I just got RTK2 and noticed that ghey don't have all the readings for the kanji. ie: for the kanji, 文, its supposed to be BUN and MON. But te only have BUN. What's up with that. And they also have absolutely NO Kun readings. Why?
Btw, idk how I made this post. Can someone tell me how to make a new one. Thanks in advanced.
