>>143164032>>143164128>"I don't particularly support learning vocab before you encounter it in the wild either, you should do Core to get a foundation but after that all my words are mined when I encounter them.
And what makes you think there's a difference between finding vocab through reading then adding it to a vocab deck and encountering a vocab for the first time in core itself instead? In core you have the example sentence, when mining you have the context. Both slip into irrelevance after like 3 lapses, or do you know even half your mined vocabs' origins?
Whether you learn grammar before or after seeing it in native material and whether you learn vocab before or after first encountering it while reading doesn't matter. It's not something you can't understand without "true" Japanese as your context, in the end everything grammatically right works as context.
Stop preaching your own learning method so hard, it makes it really obvious that you're just trying to convince yourself you're not doing anything wrong, which is already a pointless worry in itself."
Different strokes for different folks, kids
