An intermediate-level learner with an unhealthy fascination with kanji.

Strong dislike for all "One true way to learn Japanese" pronouncements.

In particular, you may be interested in the online courses section of our resources list.

comment Finding explanations for uses rather than literal translations
You might find our resources list quite helpful for this sort of thing. I would particularly point you in the direction of the books section.

comment Different usage of 五
I suspect the 五 relates to the 五段 asked about in this question. No idea about how (or if) it would be pronounced though.

comment Difference between 獣{しし} and 野獣{やじゅう} (beast)
Everywhere I could find it, 獣{しし} is marked as outdated or archaic. Where did you come across 獣{しし}?

comment Is saying 「XはYは…」 acceptable?
Why did you believe it was incorrect? What rule did you think the construction violated?

comment Q: Should a new Japanese learner stop reviewing Chinese Hanzi?
Welcome to the site. A question of this type can generate many interesting responses. Unfortunately it is very difficult to establish factual, canonical answers to questions of this type, and as such we try to avoid them here on JL. As a general rule, the entire category of how do I study questions are generally marked as "offtopic".
