I am very new at learning Japanese. I have done some Rosetta Stone, but my friends suggested to me that I try back my study up by reading "Japanese for Busy People 1, Kana version". The Kana version, of course, required that I also memorize the basic kana. Once I finally finished doing that, I went back to Japanese for Busy people, and discovered that I actually can sound out the examples now. While I'm very excited about this, I find that sometimes, I read something and it just sounds really wrong to me. Just from a few days of trying to read in kana, I'm finding that I'm already quickly adapting. At first, it was extremely taxing to read even a few words. Now, I'm already skimming through them a little. However, my occasional confusion over words that just sound clunky to read has me concerned that there may be major gaps in my kana reading knowledge. Before I get past that "brand new learner" stage of reading kana and things set in, I want to make sure I'm not learning things wrong that I will have to work harder to correct later.
How can I solidify my basic kana reading know how before I continue to get used to reading kana in actual practice?
