Usually I try to do all the lessons in the same day, reading all mnemonics. I feel I learn a lot more this way. even if in the first few days it feels like it’s not sticking, and failing a lot of reviews. this is why the mnemonics are important for long term retention, as in the next few days, weeks months, etc when your doing the reviews although you don’t remember the whole mnemonic story completely the key points of that mnemonic will pop out at you in a mental image. and it will confirm the answer. on the subconscious level the brain is figuring it out, and usually with in day or 2 it can be re called, so say for instance you do 130 lessons in a day, you may only get 50% - 75% correct in your next review, but thats still 65 - 97 new vocab your getting right with in the first 2 - 3 days. wheres if you did 10 new vocab a day and got 100% correct you would be getting 30 vocab correct in 2 - 3 days. also I would recommend inputting all your burned vocab into Anki if you want the highest retention rate possible. even if you just read a lot you would still have a higher retention rate you used anki to input burn vocab alone. but I would recommend doing both.Wanikani is only the beginning even if you study all jlpt 1 grammar points and reach level 60 in wanikani also even if you study learn 20000 words on to of that and can read a lot… you still won’t be able to understand spoken Japanese if you don’t do a lot of listening practice. also I should add inputting into Anki avoids the issue of having to reset if a lot of burned items can not be recalled. sure inputting burned items into Anki would take time, but not as long as you think, because you can already read most of he vocab so you could do like 50 reviews in less then five minutes. but in the long run this will prevent getting all the way to level 60 and then feeling like you need to reset back to level 1… in the long run you will save alot more time doing things proly from the start then 中途半端。What is truly learned is not a choice, you just have to keep taking in a lot of stuff and some stuff you don’t expect will stick and things you want to stick will take longer. so I guess learning to be calm in uncertainty is a powerful way to advance learning.
