It’s only a small CONCEPT this Level 14 trauma. How hard can it be? Could it be SOOOOOOO 想 hard that I don’t know which 想 is coming next…and who will it be partnered with? I can 感 work it out surely.
It will not beat me. I’ve got donuts and gin ready to help me through!
Soon it’s gonna be my turn as well
Because I already know many words with Kanji from this level, it is very easy actually. 映画、銀行、感じ you come across very commonly
If you’re having a problem with this concept, you’re probably not going to consent to the employment of other groups of synonyms you’ll come across as you progress further.
I remembered concept by thinking: When Japanese people graps a concept, they say そうですね～
Level 15 was around the time my correct answer percentages started to take a dip. It’s even worse for me now.
I’m almost through with level 14 - less than 10% left on the kanji!
That vocab though…
I probably won’t finish until level…infinity.
At least level 15 has some easy looking (i already know) kanji to look forward to!
I’ve finished Level 14 today!! Hurray. It actually took me less than my average time to level up which is exactly 10 days - and Level 14 took me 9 days and 20 hours. I don’t kill myself to review things at fixed optimal times or any of that jazz - I generally review 2/3 times a day and do all my lessons when they appear. What I notice is that the more I get wrong right at the beginning of a level the quicker I learn them - which is what happened with Level 14. It’s almost as though I need to get them wrong in order for them to stick. All in all the Level was fine in the end. Level 15 is looking much nicer in comparison though.
I’m expecting this to happen to me too Marumara.
Yay you made it through to 15
Sidebar: During Level 14 I got 私 wrong. Bahahahaha. I blame my teething non-sleeping baby.
Thanks for noticing! And congrats to you too on level 15!
Loving the level 15 kanji so far - they just make more sense.
I don’t do well with those kinds of vocab. I still have them swimming around in apprentice and guru region. It’s a vicious cycle
I don’t think it’s 想 bad.
At around level 50 though, I swear there are thirty different words for “regret,” “neglect,” and “sluggish” that are still giving me a devil of a time… now I’ve got the “hate” ones mixed up with them too
Gawd yes the synonyms. I’m stuck in kan/sou/jyou hell too. I really wish there was a way to skip (as in not study) some of the superfluous vocabulary words. Like pick 2 that are useful and make the others optional.
So how is it going? I just got to level 14 this morning. It actually feels good to have to learn only 6 radicals finally
15 is good. I’m getting bored for the first time though - so I’m adding variety by reading news websites and browsing random Japanese language articles too. My motivation dips a little every now and again. I don’t fight it - which I think is key. I accept it and just lower my expectation until it returns again. Which it always does. Plus I found I could read almost a full article on NHK business news the other day which was great for upping the motivation again. I do have a degree in Japanese though - I’ve just forgotten the kanji over the years and some of the more advanced grammar.
