I see a reasonable number of people on the Internet criticizing RTK. As a Japanese language learner, I don't care if their arguments are justified or not, I care about whether those who criticize RTK can actually offer any alternatives or solutions. Based on what I've read in the past: That's why I did RTK: Because there does not appear to be any alternative ways of learning Kanji. Or at least, not decent ones.
For example, Heisig's RTK is a method. You only build new Kanji from primitives from the ones you already know. In the short term, you remember the Kanji using stories.
In the long term, you forget the story and simply remember the Kanji itself. In order to aid recall, flash cards like Anki is used. The only other alternative I know of is the traditional Japanese way. As a Japanese Japanese language student living in Japan, you learn a couple of hundred Kanji in the first year, a couple of hundred the second year, etc The Kanji learnt is ordered by commonness.
After 5 years, I don't even think they have reached yet. On the other hand, they already truly mastered the ones they already know know all the readings etc. The disadvantage of this method is that we are not Japanese, we don't live in Japan, and we're not Japanese children living in Japan learning Japanese for the first time native language. Any foreigner who attempts to learn Kanji this way would probably give up.
Instead of reading textbooks, you surround yourself in Japanese stuff.
When you read a book and you come across Kanji you don't know IE. And you do this every time.
I hesitate to call this a method. The advantage is that you see Kanji in its natural habitat and in context. The disadvantage is that looking up Kanji you don't know all of them gets very annoying, very fast. The other disadvantage is that you're simply looking up the Kanji, not actually studying them closely the same way you would do with RTK.

Probably not before , but now that RTK exists, maybe they would give up when they know there's a better alternative. That's what the thread is about, alternatives. To submit a translation request, visit here instead. This is not the full list of rules.
Please also read the full list of rules on the wiki. I am picking up studying Japanese again, and noticed that the Sixth Edition is out, and it contains new characters introduced for general use in I haven't been able to tell if anything has changed other than the new characters that may make it worthwhile in addition to the new characters.
It's not a big deal. If you go through RTK 1 and can't learn the additional new Joyo kanji on your own, you've done something wrong. But if you try and work through RTK without using whatever the community is using, it pretty much always fails because vanishly few people are clever enough to make enough good stories fast enough to make the system work fast.
I always thought the "RTK Lite" that they came up with on forum. Even Heisig might have realized that because the Chinese version splits the kanji into 2 books with more common ones in the first book so that you can either study them at the same time, consecutively, or just skip the 2nd book entirely.
I don't know of the RTK lite thing or even if the forum. It's not a new system just some additional Kanji, but if you are studying with other people who are using the numbering system for whatever reason, you might want to update.
The kanjikoohi site gave up on using numbering with the release of the new edition, and instead organizes by the Kanji. I'd say it might be worth it to instead spend the money on the alternate Kanji memorization book that came out recently.
It's getting good press. But that new book has stories for every kanji already. Stories might not stick at all if the person reading it aint familiar with the images presented, so Koohi community is always your best bet.
But it took me a huge amount of time and so much effort to look for suitable stories THEN make cards out of it, I wouldnt recommend anyone else doing it the same way. Personally I worried about which story at first, but then realized I was being slow until I realized I just needed to get done as fast as possible.
After that, if I could not recall it one time, I just changed stories. But I was also toying with the idea of writing my own book at one point so I don't consider my time wasted. Unfortunately I cant.
Actually since I couldnt use English mnemonics stories, I had to make a deck in my 1st language. Outstanding recommendation on the book.
I've heard of his method before, but I had no idea it was this effective. I will definitely look into this book as well as the other's you've mentioned. I'm surprised at how much my memory is absorbing these new elements of languages!
The mnemonic technique is splendid. I'm doing the Japanese course backwards -- it's 'quite hard'. I've been self-studying Japanese for about three years now, and I'm still completely rubbish; it's the hardest thing I've ever tried to learn. Make use of dictionaries on the web, beta. I think wanikani has a great balance between drilling the kanji and setting it in context with vocabulary.
Wow, now I'm thinking of doing this as well.
