Hello all! I was hoping to get some feedback about a few minor topics that I feel may be impeding my development in Japanese/Wanikani (or perhaps others who may be thinking similar thoughts).
I work a full-time job, doing mostly outside work, so I have little time to work on Wanikani during that time. Currently I’m working on doing Wanikani for two hours every day (1 in the morn and 1 in the eve). How does this compare to what most people set aside for it? Is it enough? Do I need more time to do it?
Leading from that question, there are some times in those two hours where my reviews are not taking a full hour and my lessons are complete. Aside from every once in a while keeping up on Katakana and Hiragana, what else can I do? I’m currently at Lvl 6 (just about to bust through to 7), but Wanikani/Tofugu recommends not starting Grammar or other studies until Lvl 10. That being the case, aside from watching anime or picking up little blurbs here and there on websites, what else can I do to fill the time and round out my studies? What have you done in the face of such doldrums?
And finally, because I have difficulty sitting down for more than 40min, these hour sessions are rough. My body throws everything at me to keep me from doing it (sleepiness at the keyboard, spontaneous hunger, fleeting distractions, the usual), and it’s tough to keep going. This would be another reason for the second question, asking how I can make my studies more engaging, as I’m starting to become… well, disenchanted. I don’t want this to happen, as I want to stick with this. Which is why I’m attempting to look outside myself for guidance in these matters. What about you? Have any of you struggled with these same issues? How have you overcome?
Thanks for taking time to read this, and I look forward to your suggestions!
