I’ve been trying to integrate immersion - switching my OS to Japanese, trying to understand various things in Japan Town, etc… - into my Japanese study. Unshockingly given I’m level 10 atm, I frequently encounter kanji/vocab I haven’t learned through WaniKani (yet). I can think of a few different approaches here, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who has attempted this. I’m curious for feedback about each approach, as well as other ideas!
Only focus on trying to understand what wanikani has taught me so far, ignoring other things. (Not my favorite option, but maybe I should stick with the WaniKani way 100% ?)
Every single time I encounter a word I don’t know, throw it into anki. (WaniKani keeps me pretty busy, and I’m not sure how far down that path I want to go)
Looking up words kanji I don’t know, but don’t worry about drilling them SRS style.
