    Neither, just use the milk carton you get with school lunch.

    today I learnt

    tree - 木
    dog - 犬
    cow - 牛

    Thats about all the kanji you need for jlpt 4.

    i think it depends on what kind of japanese you want to learn, i also think that a bit of book study maybe necessery to start a good conversation at a bar....but bar all the way in my book....lets drink studying!

    how much japanese do you know? if you know literally nothing, you're obviously going to want to start out with a textbook so you can learn the basics.

    what is your goal? do you want to eventually be able to read and pass 2kyuu/1kyuu, do you just want to fuck girls who don't speak english?

    Well if you want to be one of these people that is 'im so shit hot at Japanese' but not be able to write basic kanji then bar.

    If you want to be like me and resort at times to passing back and forth a piece of paper with written japanese on it because your listening and speaking skills are not so crash hot, textbooks.

    If you want both then both.

    It depends on your goals.

    If you want to learn the details and sound intelligent, use a textbook.

    If you want to learn how to speak at a bar, practice speaking at the bar.

    That said, limiting yourself to only the textbook and/or the bar is not a good idea. Expose yourself to as much as possible in as many forms as possible to reach your full potential.
