Hi, I’d like to ask how others have studied kanji.
I have just done memorising Katakana and Hiragana.
Currently just started using Genki for studying at home. I also bought a Pimsleur CD from Aldi to listen while driving to work (it’s a long drive to work daily so I can get through each unit by the one I get to work/home)
Now I am done with the Kana it was obvious to start Kanji.
Now my plan was to use a Kanji lesson book where each lesson has about ten characters.
Each character has the kun and on readings followed by some examples.
I was happy to go along his format but I recently discovered on r/learnjapanese they recommend learning kanji the other way round, ie pick a word and learn kanji that way.
I prefer following a guide like the kanji lessons because I’d feel so clueless which word to start and there is no format/guide to lead me along.
As the redditors were telling me, if learning the reverse way is more beneficial than why don’t textbooks teach reader the reverse way?
Or is there tips/structure on learning kanji from vocabulary rather than from characters? Thanks for any advice
