What are some good steps for me to take as a beginner

A textbook would be good. Genki is one of the more popular one and I know it’s used in university classrooms. Quite frankly you don’t need RTK if you’re using WK. If you get Genki also get the workbook. For vocab I would recommend using one of the Core decks for Anki. For listening practice I do podcasts. You don’t need to understand anything when you start, listening is good either way.

Furthermore, have you seen this thread?
