New People Questions! ~~~<3 [Lost?! Confused?! We're here to help!]

When I started I intentionally used Human Japanese as the first volume is kana only, making it easier to focus on learning grammar without having to look up kanji terms. I’ve since gone through Genki, Japanese the Manga Way, and I’m currently tackling Imabi.net

As for the other aspects of my study plan I eventually integrated kanji writing practice and conjugation practice in a composition notebook. I don’t really do it for the sake of writing, just to help improve recognition and help learn the kanji more thoroughly.

Leebo uses the iverson method which is a pretty solid learning tool as well. In the end I’d recommend trying different things until you find what works best for your situation. In the meantime check out the additional resources thread for more tools and helpful advice.

PS: At 10 items a day you’ll finish the main levels in just over two years, which is about average.
