I finally broke the 1,000-word barrier. (Barrier? Is there a barrier?) Sorry if the picture is too big. I don’t know how to make it smaller.
I’ve never known this many words, even at the end of my undergrad. I guess this is the new peak. At some point, I need to jump back into grammar so I can use these words, but I’m pretty excited to be at this point. I’ll probably take up grammar at level 16. Koichi recommends 20 is better, but at 95% of N4, I think 16 is fine. I think that will cover any words I’d come across in Genki1.
