    Although Eliots comment got negative thumbs or whatever you call it... the link he gave is extremely important. That site is ... ahh I cant even put it in words.. its a lifesafer. There are many tools that will help you besides the normal dictionary function.

    The others already reviewed your readings... so I will say something different. I also started to learn the kanji with their readings... but that might be a bad approach. I find it insanely difficult to remember them like that especially if their numbers add up. Maybe you should try to learn the readings together with words were the kanji are used. Being able to recite 6 different onyomi readings of a kanji like a dictionary isnt really that useful.

    Ahh.. way too long... in short.. I would learn the kanji with their writing and meaning... and after that the reading together with the vocabulary.

    Almost all of them are correct.
    however "早" means "early", but is scarcely used to mean "fast".
    "速" does.

    even native speakers often confuse "早い" with "速い".


    Add から、あ.く、あ.ける、むな.しい for kun yomi.

    I didn't find このむ in my dictionary. Where did you get it?

    Again, my dictionary doesn't have キ for 虫. Any example?

    You may add つと.める for kun yomi.

    FYI, there are couples of more difficult readings, which are used only in historic or Buddhism context. I don't think you would need them indeed, but I can give them if you just want to know.

    I looked up 旺文社国語辞典 and goo国語辞書( based on 小学館デジタル大辞泉, as my references.

    i can help you~
