So I’m in a bit of a situation right now. I started reading to build up my vocab. I would read something, and when I find an unknown word I add it to anki together with an example sentence. If I have not yet studied the kanji yet (as with most words for now) I usually include the word with furigana attached. But I’ve found that it’s really difficult to understand a word for kanji I have not yet studied, since I have no clue as to what they might mean (for eg; I had a hard time with the word 業界 until I learnt both the kanji, and now it’s pretty easy). But on the other hand, studying words of only the kanji you know sounds limiting.
What do you guys do? Study the words of kanji you know? Or words you don’t know too?
