I have noticed recently that while I am learning kanjis and radicals from level X, I am basically starting learning the vocabulary of level X-1. With numbers: I have just started level 10, but I have so far learned only 39 of the 119 vocabs of level 9.
I guess this is because at some point I had too many apprentice items that I stopped learning new vocabs for a while ( and just learned radicals/kanji with the sorting extension ), thus shifting the lessons back.
I am wondering whether this is a good thing or not. Maybe learning vocabs from the previous level helps to strengthen the memory of their kanjis. Or perhaps, this makes learning more difficult since you don’t apply immediately the kanjis you learn with real words.
What is your opinion?
