Hope this isn’t taken as a petty complaint, because I really am enjoying WK and have made a ton of real progress here. But, am I the only one who finds the usage sentences unnecessarily convoluted and impractical? There is an element of attempted humour in them that is getting tiresome as I would much rather read a few boring old standard textbook sentences than one mammoth one about Koichi’s father running off to join the circus or something.
I find this to be a real drawback, as seeing the kanji in a simple level-appropriate sentence is a great way of internalizing the word and expanding one’s verbal fluency. Yes humour is important and good, but I feel the site prioritized whacky/zany examples over applicable and educational ones. There are just so many useful sentences that are required of daily life in Japan, why doesn’t the site feature more of them?
If anyone knows of a good online resource where I might find practical sentences featuring the kanji in context I would appreciate hearing about it. Thank you in advance!
