Hi guys !
Now that I’ve reached level 4 and become a paid member on Wanikani I feel that I’ve taken a new step forward with my learning; I’m quite happy for that .
So far my experience has been great. Not learning grammar is not really an issue since I’ve studied the Minna no Nihongo before and also from other resources; so when it comes to learning Kanji, I feel that Wanikani definitely beats other options (at least the many I have tried so far).
I created my account on February 11, 2021, so it took me a little bit less than a month to get here ! Although it seems fast, I felt that I took too long in level 3. Mostly because I was a bit depressed due to life stuff and even though I did not lose my daily discipline, my performance was reduced and I found myself making more mistakes. So I guess that I will have to avoid being sad for future levels .
I’m quite happy to have become a paid member ! I just really like the community and the wanikani app. I think it is always great to contribute to the projects you believe in !
I hope to keep on improving ! I really want to read Japanese manga . I’m a strange person, because I care more about reading manga than about having social interactions (lol). But what matters here is that I do love the language.
BY THE WAY ! for those who are around my level… What would you think about trying the Wanikani Leaderboard? I found out that this a great way to keep track of someone else’s progress. I know that probably many people already use this tool, but I’m a bit late to play with those guys . So for the new generation of Wanikani users, keep me in mind ! Also let me know if you want to participate to write your name down
Good luck !!
You’re in luck, this forum is basically Strangeland
Congratulations Some levels take forever… Some you pass fast
I think what really matters is the effort to come back to working for your goal after demons mess w u
That’s it ! We gotta keep trying till the bitter end.
And someday we will become almighty level 60.
…Then we can read Korean manga, but in Japanese.
Hi! I really like that you’ve gotten so far! I’m glad you’re liking WK! I’m kind of a newbie here too—I started in like… late December-ish? I would love to keep motivated & join in the Leaderboard! I wasn’t really sure if I should go there, or just stick my comment here, so I chose the later hehe. my username is sabayo_m hehe, 頑張ってください!
@sabayo_m ! Just added you. (see picture below ). You’re my first Wanikani friend - or rival - now.
Also, I had some issues installing the Leaderboard script… I found out how to by reading more this thread.
Let’s keep in touch @sabayo_m ! ! Perhaps a Japanese call on skype when we get to level 10???
Thank you !! . Let’s keep moving forward to a brighter future full of Kanji.
Right back at you! I look forward to this challenge! 私わ負けない!
Let’s Skype! Or whatever! Great idea
or… I should say first official friend/foe! I just think the rest of these doodz are cool
That’s it !
Look forward to reading your story post when you get to level 10 too !!
Count me in :)) just got to level 4 myself, after delaying level 3 due to exams.
Let’s do it @Razvanel !
Just added you ! Don’t forget to reach back when you get to level 10 ! would love to keep in touch Perhaps in the future we can actually practice some Japanese speaking → Or perhaps find ourselves in Japan as tourists. Who knows ! Endless possibilities, let’s just keep on learning
Ah, a fellow person of culture, I see . うれしい！
You can add me ok the leaderboard as well guys.
Dunno about you…but I m really really impatient. I want to read manga and watch anime without subtitles as soon as possible… I know it’s not easy peasy lemon squize… but, dunno how to put it. I had a strange experience with learning Spanish. I was obliged by the circumstances to watch Spanish Dramas - telenovelas, each day, for several years, like 7-8 years. Basically all my childhood. I didn’t enjoy it, but watch it nonetheless. When I ve started to learn Spanish, couple of months ago…basically I’m intermediate. I have difficulties speaking, but my comprehension and reading are almost 90% spot on, making it very easy to study the grammar. I ve also read Harry Potter in Spanish in my first week of learning, with almost 0 help. I think the same principles doesn’t apply to Japanese, even though I watch considerable amounts of anime, because…dunno, it’s the difference in alphabet? I must say I fell a little bit discouraged. I’ve learnt all the kanas but I am able to read them so slow…maybe it’s just me being a slow learner, but I’m gonna push it nonetheless
Hola Rushian ! Cómo estás?
Por su puesto que te incluiré en el Leaderboard . Siéntete libre de incluirme a mí también.
By the way ! When you get to a higher level, let’s say level 10 - Don’t forget to get in touch with me ! Perhaps we can practice a little bit together (and give us anime recommendations ?).
Wish you the best luck ! Never give up.
Estoy muy bien mi amigo. Claro que si.
At level 10 maybe we can create a Discord group and party watch some animes or Japanese movies without subtitle together. I think it can be fun
Esa es una excelente idea !
Te recomiendo que además de Wanikani también estudies gramática en otras webs, hay muchas muy buenas .
Would be awesome to make friends on this platform ! Open to that.
Let’s try to know more Japanese first though, or we may lose focus ! After that, we can create that discord group, sure
Hey, Im a little late to the party.
May I join in with the leaderboard and collaboration thingy?
Hey @karakuja ! Sure.
I have just added you ! Feel free to add me too
So far the idea is that if we get to level 10, we should get in touch. So you can come back to this post or send me a message . So let’s see how many more people kept the discipline and also who’s actually interested in creating a group !
