So, I am in the tail end of finishing Genki 1, tobira beginner 1, and みんなの日本語 １ and I am curious of where to go next after these books. I really was not a fan of how genki 1 did things, but tobira beginner also had a lot of issues. meanwhile minnna no nihongo had a ludicrus amount of vocabulary (plus no english, and i never bought the english translation. thanks Bunpro for having all the vocab for it!) so I want to know what did you guys do after the first book? I want a mix of formal and casual speak (minnna was all formal, while the tobira was mostly casual) and was wondering if you know of any other resources outside these 3 big ones in terms of textbook learning.
Sorry for any typos, my keyboard is not working properly and misses keys.
