I’d like to have some tips on learning new vocabulary.
I practice writing and reading and do grammar exercises.
My study time/homework time is about 1-2h per day since I work full time.
The problem is sometimes I do reading practice or just grammar practice sheet.
Most of the time I have no problem with grammar but the main problem is I don’t know a lot of the kanji and when I keep reading and I don’t understand I end up looking up each kanji meaning, my brain “disconnect” and I can’t focus anymore.
The other problem is, it takes quite some time to learn one Kanji (well for me anyway) especially if I have no knowledge of the Kanji . New word with kanji I already know is not a problem because my brain makes the connection.
So my question is, should I stick to easier texts and exercises until I get more vocabulary or is there a good way to practice all the new stuff I see?
I started using an Android app with vocabulary from JLPT5-1 other than Wanikani .
So, I’d like some advice from other fellow Japanese language learners because maybe the way I’m doing things is not good .
