I’m pretty new to Japanese language-learning, and I’m only on Wanikani level 3. (Just got my subscription a few days ago, yay).
Anyway, I’m playing Pokemon X in kana-only mode (no kanji knowledge lol), and I was wondering if that’s a bad thing. My vocabulary is actually not non-existent, and for some reason, I have an intuitive grasp of a lot of the grammar although I couldn’t point out which tense or form it was if you put a gun to my head. (maybe it’s all the hours watching anime).
So basically what I’m doing is having Jisho open on my laptop and using it to understand the words I’m unfamiliar with (like 90% of them). This way, I’m learning some new vocab every day (I put it into Anki, in both the hiragana, kanji). Will this benefit me in the future, while associating kanji to vocab I already know, or with the vocab I might gain from this game?
Or do you think I’d be better off doing something else?
I use Bunpro for grammar, and WaniKani for Kanji. I’m around a quarter of the way through Bunpro’s N5 grammar, so I know some basic things.
