I’ve finished Genki I and II and even read the first chapter of Tobira.
My problem however is that whenever I try to create a sentence with stuff that I already went over (in speaking or writing that isn’t これはペンです) I have to open up the books and look things up. For obvious reasons I’d like to move past that stage. Recently I have been starting to use HiNative to ask for corrections. But it happens quite often that the correction they give me is using some grammar point I haven’t seen yet, so I am not sure if I am at the right level to use these kind of resources yet.
How do you suggest for me to continue?
Should I leave Tobira be for a while and keep practicing Genki stuff?
Or should I just go on with Tobira and worry about solidifying the knowledge later?
Or some complete different approach?
Maybe someone else is experiencing the same problem or managed to surpass that stage?
Thanks in advance!
