I’m still new to the Japanese language. I’m enjoying Wanikani a lot, and I’m probably going to subscribe soon to access level 4 and beyond. But I’m a bit unsure as to how to progress my study plan, and maybe some of the more experienced learners can help me with that.
Basically, I wonder how much I should worry about grammar versus vocabulary and kanji this early. I have the kanas down, so that’s good. But then my next step was starting Busuu, which was actually very fun, until I noticed a drop in quality with the lessons just throwing a lot of vocab at me. I also felt like it didn’t properly prepare me for some of the grammar that was required to complete the freeform exercises.
So for vocab I went to Wanikani, which has the added advantage of teaching kanji as well, and for grammar I started with Kim Tae’s guides on Youtube/Tofugu. Both resources have been excellent so far, but there is a lot to go through with each. How do you think I should balance the two at the moment, and do you know of any good ways to practice the grammar I’ve learned (preferably through free means)?
This question may seem trivial to some, but I’m kind of bad at charting a course for long-term goals like learning Japanese. I guess any progress is better than none, but I’d rather be following a plan that I know is able to produce good results.Thank you!
