Not sure if it’s possible to private message here. If I find out how, I may contact OP about this.

It’s not possible, by the choice of the staff.

Ok, thanks for the info. OP, you can use this product the way it is, use a different product or track your own learning. Up to you.

oh ok; I mistooken the radical ‘slide’ for the radical ‘barb’ dumb mistake I know… But anyways thank you for your help! ^ ^/

I wonder why they refuse to implement an option to speed things up. Not all people come to this portal with zero knowledge of the language. I’d rather start doing actual learning instead of checking the phone every couple of hours for 3 months straight.

You should check out the guide/review @Naphthalene wrote for reaching Lvl 60. It focuses specifically on the usefulness of WaniKani for advanced learners, maybe it’ll help answer some questions you have :slightly_smiling_face:

They have answered that question many times.

They should probably post the answer somewhere obvious so people would stop asking then. I googled, found nothing.

Did you try looking at the FAQ/Knowledge Base?

You know is a new year when it suddenly overflows with this kind of questions.

Yeah, they really should. Why didn’t they think of that. I was talking about the mumbling koichi does at his desk.

You mean beyond the stickied post that’s called the Unofficial FAQ? It’s pretty hard to miss being the second highest thread on this board…

No need to keep checking your phone. You can just do reviews and lessons once a day. On higher levels may be worth splitting up but at the start I think only worth checking once a day. There are tons of other stuff to do in the mean time.

I am impressed how this community still stay calm and answer this question again and again on other boards they would rage … cover everything in fuel to see the world burning… or consider smashing their head so hard on the table to pass out and escape at least for a few hours…

To go at max speed, you need two to three reviews per day. (Unlock of new items, 4h and 8h)

But not that many every day. Just twice a week. The other days you can do it a bit more freely.

It depends on how you spread your lessons. I like(d) to spread my vocab lessons across the whole level to avoid huge review spikes (it also helps with retention), and I don’t like to do lessons if I have reviews waiting. So I used the three reviews schedule pretty much every day, except when I had no lesson left, then just morning and evening.

I am currently facing this huge review spikes for the first time… that is pretty annoying…

And here I was about to make a post asking about how to find more time…
