beginner ukulele lesson

is it better to learn and be familiar with chords or is it more effective to learn actual songs? i wonder if i'm doing it backwards... i feel i am just memorizing the chords for a particular song but i'm not confident, if someone blurts out the name of a chord, that i'd be able to strum it off the bat. i suppose it's personal preference but i'd like to hear any suggestions from the experts.

I used to enjoy learning songs while learning chords. Each song I would learn new chords and build my knowledge slowly.
Learning just the chord shapes is one thing but being able to switch from chord to chord during a song is a completely different task.
So I guess I'm saying a balance of both will be a good way to go at it =)
