Welcome to what I'm going to call... THAT'S NOT HOW YOU LEARN JAPANESE!
The idea is to associate Japanese words with English context, similar to how a person might learn a more complicated word by looking at the simply-phrased sentence where the word is used. I may also make other associations between Japanese words to show how they're related.
I'm doing this more for my benefit, but if it helps anyone else who is learning Japanese, I'll be glad to hear it.
Thanks for reading!
