Blockquote Wait, what do you mean by this? If you’re talking about looking up the Japanese word for ‘look’ and then memorizing synonyms, that is a bad idea. You would be better off learning vocab with Kanji like in Wanikani , a core 6k or core 10k deck , or from reading (which should be the ultimate thing you are striving towards)
perhaps I should be more clear. I use gtranslate more along the lines of learning new Kanji combos. Or if I am trying to learn a new word that wanikani has not taught me yet then I will use it. There is a crazy number of combinations of kanji that means diffrent things. So for a quick reference I put the kanji combo I am not familiar with and see what it translates and then kind of learn the vocab that way if that makes more sense. then I also need to learn the grammar proportion of certain words in which I figure out the context if that makes sense. Just because I’m using Wanikani to learn Kanji dosen’t mean I need to follow the EXACT order of wanikani I think. If there is a Kanji I wanna learn and Wanikani has not taught me it yet. Why not use it? something a long those lines
While I admit my way of learning at the moment may not be the most practical or the best at the moment, it’s what I currently have, known and use. However, I am here to learn and open minded. If anyone can tell me what would be a better tool, or resource to use to translate things but also learn from it. that would be nice. in which seems like what I am getting.
