How to use Free Software to learn Japanese, and more.

I just quit WaniKani after learning 1,300 kanji. Should I do JP1K or just jump into sentence mining?

Just go to the next step. Do the N5 and N4 levels of Ankidrone Starter Pack, then jump into sentence mining.

JP1K is made for beginners, for people who don't know any Japanese yet. Before you start sentence mining, you need to reach the point of kanji fluency. If you have learned more than 1,000 kanji, then it is highly likely that you already have kanji fluency. There's no need to continue studying kanji in isolation or with a JP1K deck. You just need to start sentence mining. The kanji you don't know yet can be learned through learning whole words.
