Hello, folks. I’d like some advice.
Since I’m used to begginner/low intermediate grammar, when I reached level 20s~ here I threw myself in the wild, trying to consume several different types of content (nhk easy news, visual novels with dual lang, mangas, raw rpgs etc).
As expected, there are many words and sentences that I’m not able to grasp. But there is another situation that’s triggering me.
Sometimes I find a vocab that I’m sure I’ve studied on WK before, but I can’t remember the meaning at all (and I can’t figure out from the context).
In this situation, what do you guys usually do?
a- stop whatever activity you are doing and look for the meaning;
b- write down the vocab and look for the meaning later;
c- ignore and move on, hoping for the WK review to arrive soon.
Usually I look at the translation (if the content has dual lang), but most of the time there isn’t, so by now I simply move on. On one side, I wouldn’t like to stop everytime it happens, specially if it’s a game and I’m not in a “study” session. On the other hand, idk if I should stop and look for the meaning/context right away, so I get more used to the word.
I’ve also thought ab creating an ANKI deck or something similar just for these words, but I feel that it will mess up with the SRS intervals/will be too much hassle bc there will be a ton of words.
What’s the approach of you guys when you are not really studying, but face this kind of situation?
Best regards to everyone.
