The approach I've finally decided to take is to mix in both words and sentences, and only use the latter when I feel a particular word needs context to properly understand. Makes a lot more sense to me than to spend hours writing out sentences from books just to test basic nouns or whatever. For a language like Chinese, however, such an approach might actually be preferable insofar as fluditity in reading sentences is concerned, no matter how basic the words might be. I also find that the more advanced I get, the less need I have for sentences and I can switch largely to words. Even basic sentences are good to test in the beginning, as they get you used to the structure of the language.

Sounds interesting, mate. I still favour the "sentences" only method, and use words only for place names 箱崎 for example or words which still allude me

What does that Kanji read? I know that the first Kanji is "bako", but what is the second one?
