So it’s really frustrating to know a fair few Kanji (Only level 7 but I’m seeing so many recognizable\readable things now) but not be able to actually string even a simple sentence together. I have had multiple conversations die due to my lack of being able to from a coherent sentence on Hello Talk.
I’ve tried a few things now (free things, obviously) and nothing seems to be sticking as well as WaniKani does. 文プロ is good in that it uses reviews and SRS like WK but I find it attempts to tell me too much at once, like it teaches me that てもいい means is alright to, is okay, can, may (which is hard enough to grasp anyways) but then also presents a sentence that requires のんでもいい and marks てもいい as incorrect.
It’s probably just me being dense but remembering 4 different variations on the meaning, with no mnemonic, all in kana and having to remember that even though the lesson is titled (I can’t be bothered changing IME right now) temoii its actually nondemoii is rather difficult.
The websites it links you to are ok but vary wildly in both their specificity and explanation on usage.
I’ve looked at Tae Kim and every time I even try to read that my Brain goes “Nope” and just gives up, I tried Anki but find it too hard to have whether I’m correct or not entirely on my shoulders.
I don’t mean to be like “Tried that, it sucks, that does too, nope, no way” but I’m a really slow, painfully bad learner and literally have myself and only myself to lean on, no foreign friends, no friends undertaking this journey with me and my family tells me to stop babbling gobbledigoop whenever I try and speak.
Is there anything around that teaches you things, one at a time, as if you’re a total dumb***?
ごめんなさい for wall of text.
