How much of a problem is it?
It’s currently not too bad, but the reason I wanted to ask at the beginning, is because this is exactly what happened to me when I had to learn French, haha… I struggled with certain vocabulary for no reason, whilst others were extremely easy to learn and master. I’d rather ask the question now, if you get what I mean.
Japanese Graded Readers
That looks like a great resource, thanks! I’ll definitely take a look at it once I’m back home tonight. Something like that, is probably perfect for me; it’s basic to begin with, but then has different and more harder variants.
Words in own sentences
Maybe this is just me, but I find at level 6, I don’t know enough vocabulary to actually form a sentence, and I get bogged down by looking up that new vocabulary, rather than solidifying current vocabulary, if that makes sense.
Do you have any games, movies, music, shows, etc. in Japanese that you can listen to?
I find that learning Japanese media is difficult. Most the time, I find myself reading the subtitles, and not hearing the Japanese, even if I’m supposed to be listening out for vocabulary. It’s probably just the games and shows I watch though, seeming as they are quite high-level Japanese anyways. Is there any media you would recommend, that I would at least be able to get a general gist of what’s going on, without subtitles (or alternatively, Japanese subtitles)?
I do use them, but certain ones just won’t stick in my head. For a few, I’ve made up my own, and that’s worked, so perhaps I should be doing that more for ones I find difficult…?
KaniWani or KameSame
I reset my KaniWani to level 1 a few days ago, incidentally, as I had the same thought. Hopefully that helps out.
Sorry for the rambling post, or if the post is sorta hard to follow; I’m about to head into college, and it’s still quite early, so I just wanted to reply with a bit of information before I head out. Many thanks for all of your help, though, I will definitely be looking into some of these methods or techniques!
