Just so you know, this balanced approach you're talking about (a bit of traditional learning + a bit of immersion) is literally addressed by Stephen Krashen in the video I posted earlier. According to his research, while this approach makes intuitive sense, it turns out to be wrong on the whole. Watch the video from 4:52Thanks for your insight. I'll still be sticking with Genki and the Human Japanese app, so I'll have some structured, tiered learning as well. Hopefully by combining the two methods I'll start to soak things in and piece things together a little more rapidly. Now that I'm home from work I'll definitely check out the MattvsJapan channel.
ytma!Stephen Krashen on Language Acquisition Part 1 of 2 (14:19)Filmed talk by S.Krashen - You can watch as is or you can use Self Access note-taking Task THP V 9 on Self Access page in your wiki
to hear his take. But I suggest you watch the whole vid (and part 2). I never get tired of watching it because he's so eloquent. Stupid nerd me :D.
Make what you will of that obviously, and I'm not necessarily against the notion in the very beginning of your learning... But yeah.
