[Edit: changed the name of this thread to be more general because I like the idea of a place where people working through Tobira can go to discuss it]
Getting ready to start Tobira and wanted to ask: for those of you who have gone all the way through it self-studying, what methods emerged for how best to tackle each chapter and retain the material?
I’m just generally interested in hearing literally anything about how people used the book. It took me most of the first book of Genki to get into a routine and I’d like to figure this book out faster if possible.
I’ve seen a lot in different threads about methods for using Genki: tips for getting through the books more effectively (i.e. people recommending learning the vocabulary a chapter or two ahead), what order people use, what to really focus on, what to skip, etc etc
But other than a little bit of convo here, I’m not finding much of the same about Tobira. I know it has a reputation for being less approachable than Genki and would love to hear anything that might give a head-start at… approaching it.
Side note, how I feel as I close Genki for the last time:
