'Bout 8 months in and Level 21… I’m sorta cruising slowly because I’m not in a super rush to get the lowest time per level.
I know I’m not Level 30 yet but in terms of reading, I encounter a fair amount of vocab and kanji I’m not familiar with, but constantly whip out the dictionary so I’m not actually sure how much I’m capable of reading on my own. I’d estimate that I search up maybe 10 or so kanji/vocab per page of the book I’m reading currently. Some of that is searching up stuff I already learned because I always second guess myself
With a dictionary I can translate a light novel, so… it depends on how good your grammar is too because even if you recognize kanji, not knowing the grammar will make it hard to read text.
