    As for self-experience, it's better with hiragana first, because it's hard to read quickly a new alphabet, so then while you learn vocabulary you can do it in hiragana and train both at the same time. Same for katakana.
    Good luck!
    To learn some vocabulary will help you to learn more advanced japanese.
