I’d love to know what people think of the plausibility of this technique?
I was planning to learn 16 new words a day plucked from various sources. From signs/posters/road markings in immediate surroundings, anime & tv, words I hear in conversation, children’s books etc… put into an Anki deck.
I would then supplement this by watching/listening to lots of TV & Anime.
I do live in Tokyo so I have a lot of native listening material around me too.
16 x 365 days = just under 6000 vocab = JLPT N2. Of course this is rough and patchy so may or may not constitute N2 but for me it’s just meant to be an engaging way to learn by plucking out the words and phrases that I want to understand.
1.What do you think about this approach?
2.With a fair vocabulary will the grammar reveal itself with enough listening comprehension?
3.Will it be silly to have such a patchy vocabulary with vocab of all levels?
4.Has anyone tried a similar approach of learning tons of vocab?
