I hope this is the right category…
I’m trying to decide whether I should add in grammar alongside my WK lessons and reviews. Don’t get me wrong, I know I will need to tackle grammar EVENTUALLY, the question is not if but when.
A little background: I am a low intermediate speaker, conversant with basic grammar and vocabulary covered in say Genki 1 or Japanese for Busy People 1. But things like compound sentences, using clauses, passive and causative verbs, those are beyond me.
Obviously I wish I could spend several hours a day on both, but that’s not possible because of all the Adulting. So I’m wondering whether adding in grammar studies would help me be more efficient overall or would result in a net slow down as I get behind on lessons. I’d love to hear from veterans about what they would do (or have done) in a similar situation.
tl;dr: Is it better to do a little grammar and WK simultaneously, or to finish WK and then use all that time that was being spent on WK to work on grammar?
