Already having trouble at level one

A lot of people have already given a lot of good advice, so I’m just going to throw in some words of encouragement. :slight_smile:

I can relate. I started September 27th and part way through Level 2, I got frustrated, felt lost, and reset to level 1 on October 6th. I’m doing far better now, and learning is smoother three weeks after that reset. (About to be level 4.) Stick with it and I know you’ll go far. A very friendly @KyokaJiro shared a quote with me the other day:

But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!

Remember one thing: Wanikani is “gamified learning” but that doesn’t mean you’re competing to be the best/quickest/most accurate/etc. The gamified part makes your habit building far easier in my opinion, but everyone is going to have their own pace.

jprspereira’s Ultimate Guide is jam packed with a ton of useful information, and should you choose to venture down the very deep rabbit hole of userscripts, the Self-Study Quiz lets you study without affecting your SRS timings. If you add the additional filters script that is on the same page, you can do leech training, which targets the items you keep getting wrong.

Best of luck, and remember that we’re always here to help! :slight_smile:
