Well it turns out that after learning those ten characters the only ones that are really useful to know at this point are :是不在個他. I will most likely forget the others soon. I have therefore decided to choose certain characters from the list to learn first.
My selection method is as follows: If I’ve seen the character before, I choose it, or if I know the meaning/pronunciation, I choose it. This way I’ll learn quickly and I will remember what I’m learning. It is a much better method than any of my three previous methods. One was learning random characters that I found in my book, the second was learning characters by theme, the third was learning the most common characters.
I’m not even going to update the Known and Unknown post with the other characters. Only the ones listed here
