I have a question about progression to the users who are at an intermediate or advanced level of Japanese.
How long did it take you to get to the point where you understand just about everything you read?
I realize it might be a dumb question, but I have to ask someone with more experience, since I’m an incredibly inpatient guy when it comes to my Japanese learning. I’ve been using Wanikani since January 1, and gotten to level 16, which is roughly one level a week. And I’ve also gotten to chapter 16 in Genki, also one chapter a week. So I’ve gotten pretty far in a small amount of time I think(Though I bet some people of done it alot quicker), and I can say alot of different stuff, but I’m still not able to read very much written by Japanese people. I’m only sometimes able to read whole sentences, but really rarely.
So when did you feel that you got to a level where you could comfortably read most sentences? What level on wanikani and what chapter(and what book)?
I kind of assume most people don’t even notice it since learning a language is such a gradual thing, but I still have to ask, since the question keeps itching in my head.
