I am an absolute beginner. Only level 2 on Wanikani and I've gone through a couple of chapters in Genki. I would like to read something in Japanese and Japanese Graded Readers are famously good choices.

Given my ultra beginner status, I'm still unfamiliar with even the level 0 vocabulary. Should I wait until I know the vocabulary, or should I just translate the pages?


I suggest looking at resources here: Resources for learning Japanese

I suggest using the kanji teacher app (ios) to learn hiragana and katakana (meories and draw them) then get a japanese teacher to help guide you through the genki book (and help you do the practice questions) as they can correct you on pronunciations and your writing. However use the link above to find what is best for you.
