Well here I am... My first language log.

I wanted to learn a totally different language compared to English. As an anime-fan,
the decision wasn't hard: I want to learn Japanese!!!

My Goals:
  • Basic conversations
  • To be able to understand/identify simple
    sentences in animes
  • Read simple mangas/articles

Low priority: (hand-)writing

My Resources:
  • Pimsleur
  • Textfugu
  • japanesepod101
  • Genki I

  • RTK
  • Kanjidamage
  • Wanikani
  • Anki

I started a week ago... with Hiragana & Katakana. Basically just memorizing them with
the help of Anki.
Now I have started with a few pimsleur, textfugu & jpod101 lessons. But I can't really
decide on a kanji learning-method yet.
I have tried RTK, Kanjidamage & wanikani, but each of them has their disadvantages.

RTK: No pronounciation help (but maybe I don't need it yet)
Kanjidamage: needs lot of groundwork
Wanikani: too slow for my taste

But do I need to learn Kanji this early?? Or should I focus on vocab/grammar first?

We will see...

No. You should focus on vocab/grammar first, though I am not the one to talk because I prioritize Kanji more than grammar due to my former crush sometimes replies my chat with Kanji.
