I need some help regarding the mandarin radical deck for simplified Chinese. I just started learning the radical and often ask my wife (who is Chinese) for help. She has told me that most of the radicals and characters that I am learning in the deck are old traditional characters or that she cant recognise them. For example the radical for Gold 金 = in the deck is mentioned with 鉄 = Iron as an example. These are the old symbols even though I specifically downloaded the simplified deck. Am I missing something? Also, I also found it very confusing that Chinese and Japanese are always together in the posts and download material.
Thanks for your help !!!!!
