Hello! I’m Stéphane, 22 years old, from France .
I just started to use Kitsun after reading the topic on Wanikani
I’m using WaniKani since the beginning of the year. I finally wanted to get serious about learning Japanese.
Anything I’m doing, or most of it , is related to Japan for around 6 years :
- Japanese videos with EN subs
- Anime with EN subs
- Playing Japanese songs on my piano.
And I still can’t speak or read anything. Kana and few Kanji, that’s it.
Now it’s starting to slowly grow after 1.5 month of WK; but I want to improve my vocabulary as well. I know only a very limited amount.
It’s also been 3 weeks that I’ve been using Anki with the Genki 1 deck that I was trying to do at the same time as reading Genki 1. I learnt until now with it but I’m looking for something a little bit more intuitive, natural. That’s why I’m interested in trying Kitsun
The problem is that there are a lot of resources so I don’t know what to do.
Concerning Kitsun, I just took the Deck 10K, and I already know the first words given, I think I’ll have to wait a few days to have unknown words (unless you advise me to do more lessons until I find unknown words… maybe ).
Using WK and Kitsun will definitely help me for the reading and vocabulary part; even though there are still some other problems:
- Listening or speaking practice.
I heard about some things like Bunpro or JapanesePod101 and I’d love to hear what you’re doing and what you would advise me
Time to get serious so that I can finally better understand what I do and what I listen daily And one of my goals is also to stay at least one or two years in Japan before I’m 30, no matter what and no matter how.
I really hope that Kitsun will be able to help me on this long road; that would make me really happy in the end.
I look forward to getting to know each other
