Does anyone else have this problem?

You don’t have to do them all right away!

This happens when you guru a whole bunch of kanji at once and suddenly unlock all of the associated vocab lessons, as well as the new batch of radicals, kanji, and some vocab for the new level. But unless you’re trying to rush to level 60 as fast as possible (and even then, there’s a strategy that allows you to avoid doing huge lesson binges), you don’t need to clear out the whole lesson queue immediately. You can chip away at that number by doing just 10, 15, 20, or however many lessons you want each day!

If you want to avoid having a large vocab backlog at the beginning of a new level, my suggestion would be to download the lesson filter script and distribute the kanji lessons throughout the level instead of doing them in huge clumps. As long as you aim for a ratio of roughly 1 kanji to every 3 vocab lessons, you shouldn’t end up with a huge backlog of vocab. Doing 3 kanji a day and 9 vocab (for a total of 12 lessons a day), for example, is a pretty good pace that’ll get you to level 60 in under three years. 4 kanji and 12 vocab (for a total of 16 lessons) would be a bit faster, or 5 kanji and 15 vocab (20 lessons) if you’re feeling more ambitious. Using this script would mean that you guru kanji in much smaller waves, resulting in a more gradual stream of lessons.

But really, having a bunch of lessons isn’t really a problem (unless you’re using a script to only do kanji lessons and are skipping all of the vocab). I actually deliberately cultivate a small pile of lessons so that I can always do my daily 10-13 lessons every day. I don’t want the number to reach 0 until I’m at the end of level 60, haha :sweat_smile:
