Hello fellow WaniKanians!
First of all I have pretty much knowledge of most of the grammar in the books, but I desperetely needed some kind of workbook, since I have used Genki for a while but I can’t get into it as well as I wish.
So I recently bought book 1 and 2 from the Japanese from Zero series, and so far I totally love them! I just have some questions on how I should progress with everything, and I guess that people with some knowledge about the books are better off with responds.
So I thought that starting with book1 would be really good for reviewing and then take a step into book2 and learn more from it. The thing is though, that I know all of the Hiragana/Katakana (and several kanjis obviously) but I have never learned how to write them (as the book also teaches you). Now I’m about half way through book1 and I feel that my writing skill in Hiragana is still pretty much terrible, so should I stop for a while with progressing in the book and practice more of writing Hiragana outside of it?, or should I just keep moving on and write everything in the book (even though my hiragana is a total mess?).
It feels a bit demotivating for me to do all the excercises in the book, trying to write all the hiragana that I have learned, when my writing looks like crap. But do you think that going through the book will advance my writing skills to a better and better level just on Its own?
What was your experience when using a textbook where you write everything in Hiragana/Katakana or even your experience with the Japanase from Zero book series?
I would love to hear!
