Background: I’m an N1 passer and have extensive experience with Japanese (I use it for work, etc.) but out of pure laziness I stopped studying after reaching approximately 1,000+ kanji. However, even without knowing all the kanji I am quite literate due to sheer exposure–I learned more kanji from reading, and am usually able to figure out kanji/words from their context in the sentence, but weak at identifying them in isolation. So I probably need to take a step back and learn the radicals (which I never did properly).
So I just started WaniKani a few hours ago and like the radical approach, but am unhappy that I can’t skip levels, or at least power through them due to timed review constraints. I like learning the radicals but since I already know most of them I just fly through them…and I expect the next 1,000+ kanji would be the same.
I just really need to learn the last 500 or so kanji, but how long do I have to slog through the course before I get to finally learn what I need?
Is WaniKani not for me, or is there a faster way to do the course?
