Vocab not kanji

Postby 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.

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.
