Vocab not kanji

Post by noisyturtle » Wed 10.10.2007 6:49 pm

So everyone says to learn vocab and not kanji. I have no problem with that but I am wondering how you would say it in Japanese.

漢字だけではなく、熟語も勉強するのが必要です。

Really the phrase should be "vocab in addition to kanji" rather than "not". There is value in studying the readings and meanings of kanji, as long as you are at the same time studying other things as well.

I would say something like 漢字よりコトバを大事にして.

言葉を習う同時に漢字を習ったほうがいいでしょうね。
