I have about 100 hours of active listening since last month and I only started learning Japanese at the end of October. I only have around 300 vocab words (all N5 words) that I’ve learned, with around a rough estimate of 25-50 words (excluding numbers) I can almost automatically understand if I hear them in audio. My question is when I’m active listening (not using subs) to a show and I hear a word I 100% know is a word I’ve learned, but can’t quite recall what it means, should I take the time to try and remember what it means and then confirm it with the subs? Or… should I just let it pass by and continue listening. The reason I’m asking is because whenever a word comes up that I know is something I’ve learned, I end up focusing on this and I stop listening to what is being said. I then lose active listening time, and I spend a minute or so focused on one word. Another reason is because after confirming it with the subs, to my surprise, there are quite often words I knew in the sentence that I missed (which is most likely due to me zoning out the rest of the sentence and focusing on the familiar word). Anyways, it’d be greatly appreciated for some advice here. Feel free to bring your own idea in as well if you have one.
