I’m sorry if this is a stupid question or has been covered already in here, or if I’m unclear as English isn’t my native language. Anyway, right now I only use Wanikani for my Japanese studies. I’ve found great resources on grammar as well. But I’m quite confused about how I should go about learning vocabulary, which I want to learn so I can actually immerse myself in the language asap without it being super frustrating (as I have to look up almost every word). My problem exactly is that I have no idea how you should learn vocab that uses kanji that you don’t know yet? Trying to memorise the kanji in vocab as just some kind of vague “form” that you might be able to recognise when you see it, but probably can’t that reliably really since many complicated kanji especially look rather similar, doesn’t seem very practical. Then again learning it only in kana doesn’t seem practical either since then you can’t read anything? And learning a new kanji along (almost) every new vocab word seems like wayyy too much of a hassle plus I just can’t seem to make kanji stick very well without Wanikani.
How have you tackled this issue?
