I have been focusing on JUST learning kanji and vocabulary since last July, as I only have so much time per day.
In parallel I have been going slowly through Human Japanese and Tae Kim. I can “read” and “understand” a lot of the samples, but I would like to force myself to read something in full japanese BUT…that is also kinda mapped to my current kanji level (should be 13 in the next couple of days, so still a beginner), and that is also “cool” to read through.
Could you share some beginner samples of “interesting” reading material? (Hiragana + N5-N4 Kanji?) It can be regular reading, or manga, whatever you feel is easier.
I tried to test my current status in anime but while I can recognize phrases and vocabulary and a lot of the grammar structure, I get lost EASILY. So I would like to start by reading a lot more before bed each day…
Thanks in advance!
