Hey everyone! So I have been learning Japanese on and off for a while now but as I am living in Japan I thought I’d give it a go and study it properly.
So I have gone through both Genki textbooks, but I feel that I did not go through it properly. I didn’t use the audio (as I didn’t have a CD player, I have the audio online now) and I felt that I rushed through the books. I also didn’t do some of the exercises from the workbook or textbook. However, if I was to go back to Genki 1, I feel that some parts (especially the beginning) would be too basic.
I’m at the point in my Japanese studies where I use Graded Readers (currently on level 2) for reading and Bunpro for Grammar, which both have been a big help. But should I go back as extra practice? To reinforce my listening skills which are the worst. Or should I move on to Tobira which I have purchased. I feel that I am maybe between JLPT N4 and the very beginning of JLPT N3, just some sentence readings and speaking that might be basic I struggle with. Thanks!
Hope it made sense!
