Anyone high-level hit a low-point with WaniKani? I’m at one now!
I’ve been on for almost a year and am only at Level 12. I rocketed through the first 8 or so levels, but ever since then it has been a slog, and I think the last two levels have taken a total of about 6 months (!!!). I think I tend to try and rush through them in the morning, and end up with scores as low as 50-60%, so my Apprentice kanji don’t go down much, and I get stuck on a treadmill. That combined with the lure of vacation mode has put me in a bad position.
Here’s how I’m dealing with it. I figure if I write it down It’ll make it a more real commitment:
DO IT EVERY DAY - duh.
DO A MAXIMUM OF 50 REVIEWS A DAY - powering through 100+ reviews is like throwing time in the garbage. You can’t cram Kanji and expect them to stick. I know my focus is limited, so i’ll stick with what is doable.
DON’T RUSH 'EM - Gotta put an end to stupid mistakes and typos from trying to crush Kanji as quickly as possible. FOCUS!
Thanks all! Anyone else hit a wall and had to regroup? Let me hear your stories of perseverance and how you pushed through!
