A year and a half. No resets.
As a wanikani toddler I am able to walk and talk. Still in diapers though.

there’s a free web magazine written in easy japanese, with N level after the article titles:

Also, search for graded readers, which can also e.g. give you N4 material.
And maybe you’ll enjoy Yotsuba, which is a great beginner manga, i know i did :slight_smile:

Around 2.5 months now, by a quick mental calculation.

It took me a year to get to level 27 or so. I am working on level 29 now and hope to reach
level 60 by the end of 2022 or in early 2023, averaging about 2 weeks a level.

Balancing speed with accuracy is definitely a trick. I tried slowing way down to eliminate
leeches but found that counterproductive - I started to lose motivation because it felt like
I wasn’t making any forward progress.

I’ve been at it almost a year and a half, and I was just doing reviews as I was able, but also struggled with recalling some items so they’re bad leeches haha. I also had a couple of months where I didn’t do anything but didn’t realise there was a “holiday mode” so they just sat there and I had to cull just shy of 3k reviews which is the second super long level haha.
I did build my custom dashboard a little while ago which has been good and helped me, but recently my average days have increased per level cause I built in a “disable lesson buttons until under x number of apprentice items” setting to the dashboard and set that limit to 110 haha and I limited myself to 10 items in each lesson session, which has been great reducing the review load since I have fulltime work, lessons, and regular life things. I need the reduction because otherwise I’ll let it rule my life like obsessively checking all notifications and emails, which is not good :sweat_smile:

All that being said, I’ve… been pretty decent in terms of progress over time, which I’m pretty happy about.

Zoomin’ through so far. I think when I hit the fast levels I might at least keep the same pace rather than speeding up, because I don’t really want more than my current 150-200 reviews per day here. Doing anki as well is already pushing me to about as much SRS as I can tolerate, need to keep time for immersion.
