When I started with WK in feb '22 I was kind of anxious because I was 49 years old (now 50) and wondered if it somehow would be too late to study Kanji. But nope, age doesn’t matter, 368 days later I got to level 60
It was intense doing this, every single day from the moment I woke up to when I went to sleep. I did all reviews as soon as they became available, mostly because I dreaded big review piles so I kept having smaller batches this way. The last 15 levels or so, the fast levels, were absolutely brutal though. With around 400-500 reviews daily there was no way to keep them in smaller batches anymore.
But it’s all so rewarding. Being able to read Japanese without having to look up too much is awesome. Sometimes I do forget Kanji or vocab which I already burned, but by looking them up again I feel like they burn into my brain even better.
About the first level - 3 years ago I made an account and did 3 reviews, I decided to learn Japanese and was just testing out all the different available apps and study methods. On feb 22th 2022 I really started using WK. That’s why the first level is 627 days :-/
Now that WK is done I do need to find some structure in the rest of my studies. I need to put much more time in grammar. So for now I use BunPro, Nativshark (so cool to be able to skip all the Kanji lessons there), and to keep practicing Kanji I use the Kanji study app, which has tons of example sentences.
I’d like to refer to 2 posts about this amazing app in case you don’t know it -
where VegasVed explains a very easy way to implement all the WK Kanji into Kanji Study, so you have them all sorted nicely in the same levels als WK has.
My thanks to the WK team, to all the script developers (you made my study so much more convenient) and to the people on this forum who were always so helpfull.
To celebrate I asked my girlfriend if she wanted either a cake or sushi.
So tonight we’re celebrating in our favorite restaurant:
