Good Progress?

Hi all,

I just got to level 3 in a little under a month. I am enjoying this program and wanted to know if it would be possible for me to advance to level 10 by the end of the year.

Thanks :smile:


Definitely possible :slightly_smiling_face:
Theoretically you can finish Wanikani in under a year. Most people don’t have that time though, lol. If you want to set a nice goal for yourself, level 10 before 2021 sounds very reachable :grin::heart:
And congrats on level 3! :partying_face: 鰐蟹へようこそ :crabigator:


It’s possible, and a nice goal to set for yourself, I think. You could take a little over a week per level.


I’m a graduate student with a lot of free time because of covid so that’s why I kind of decided to take up Japanese right now lol but thank you! I’m really looking forward to advancing. I’m already able to read a lot of the beginner Kanji I encounter in my grammar books.

Definitely possible, even at a fairly modest rate that should be doable, if you’re doing your vocabulary lessons regularly :slight_smile:

The best progress is a) continual, and b) makes you feel good about what you’ve achieved. Don’t get too bogged down with all the levels and numbers, unless you’re on a strict timeline :wink:

That said, passing 7 more levels in 2-ish months is something many users are able to achieve!


You should be able to do a level in 7-10 days if you follow a regular schedule. There’s around 100 days left till 2021, so you can aim to level up around 10 times.
