I'd say since you already started AJATT: keep on doing it!

Though I can't tell if you actually found AJATT or MIA (Mass Immersion Approach), because the latter was created by a YouTuber called Matt vs Japan who became fluent through AJATT but improved upon it to make it easier to get into and eventually branched off and called it MIA.


The MIA progression, as far as I understood it, starts with immersion and Kanji Study (Seems like you do immerse and already finished the Kanji and only review them).

Tae Kim is only meant as a small start into getting familiar with basic Japanese grammar, sentence structure etc.

From what I've seen, the current recommendation for MIA is to just read through Tae Kim without worrying about mining the sentences in there and to sentence mine from the Tango N5 and maybe the N4 book (N5 here and the N4 here) and alongside that, to sentence mine from the native material that you use for immersion. This is supposed to give you a good foundation in terms of grammar knowledge and vocab. At that point you should have have mined at least 2k-3k sentences and should already be quite proficient in reading.

At that point, you are supposed to do the monolingual transition, meaning that you ditch almost all English in your studies and try to just use Japanese. You do this mainly by sentence mining native material and looking up the Japanese definitions of words you don't understand.

You should never learn single vocab, only sentences, so you learn vocab in context and have a better understanding on how the words are used.

Now that is just a rough outline of the process. While I am definitely not fluent, all I wrote you can verify yourself by watching Matt vs Japan's YouTube videos, in which he goes into more detail (Don't get discouraged by the length of the videos, they can be quite "rambly" but still contain valuable information about the whole process).

Other than that, there is an ajatt sub where people asked all kinds of questions, probably yours as well.


All this goes against common sense and is quite different from the traditional, textbook-oriented approach, so don't let people tell you that your approach is wrong and you should do X or Y.

Watch Matt's videos and decide for yourself, whether this method is something you really want to follow.

I remember using

another good resource is

it is japanese website but don't worry, search for the word you want and scroll down for the sentences, most of the time they are very short and pretty good..

I can suggest this book , I personally didn't used it, it has 1000 words for n5 with a sentence example.

personal opinion: I think just move on, even when you are not 100% sure about the word usage, specially if you are beginner. The material you are learning now will come again enough for you to fully grasp them while you study other words/grammar. :)

good luck

The book is "JLPT Tango N5 1000" also known as "はじめまして日本語能力試験 N5単語1000".

Here's my video review.

I like the JLPT Tango vocab books. They have a red sheet so you can test yourself, and you can download audio for the sentences. They have books for N5-N1 vocab- here’s a link to the N5 book

Ask’s offerings for JLPT vocab are excellent. Words are grouped by theme/situation, sentences are virtually always i+1 and grammar builds progressively also. Audio is available to download for free, and Nukemarine has Anki decks (up to N3, I think) that he’ll give you access to if you send him proof of purchase.

There’s been a lot of discussion around these books and many people believe them to be superior to Core (I am one of those people).
