I’m perhaps late to the party, but here’s my input:
- Bunpro: not for learning grammar in depth, but great for finding out where to learn it and for reviewing it in SRS. Satisfying to see progress.
- LingoDeer: what Duolingo should have been if it actually tried to teach Asian languages. Fun.
- Kamesame: Not worth it if you sign up for Kitsun. More on this below.
- Kaniwani: Less worth it than the one above at this point.
- Torii: As above.
- Kitsun: Uhmm. Hell yes. Definitely a good idea for the 10k deck, the verb conjugation deck, and EN->JP practice. The fact that you get EN->JP for vocab content that is also on WK and that you get so much content in a beautiful interface is why 3, 4, 5 are not worth it.
This is why I call the trifecta: WK+BunPro+Kitsun.
I love Bunpo (android app, not the same as Bunpro) for the grammar explanations. It’s where I go for simple explanations when I need just enough to get the gist of things without getting bogged down.
LingoDeer is where I go to bum around and make slow but sure progress.
I haven’t started using Renshuu though I have it. Looks good, but I only have so many hours in the day.
Would you be able to give a self-assessment of where you were at in terms of grammar (N5, N4…) after each of the decks you did? I’m curious about this approach.
Tae Kim is what I currently use, and Tobira is what I had in mind for the next step. It’s very reassuring to see someone actually following this specific path. How is that working out for you? I think I will use Imabi as a more in-depth source as needed though becauw sometimes Tae Kim leaves me with questions.
