This is my first post on the forum. It’s super cool to be here! (:
Maybe you can help me with some advice because I feel like I’ve still not wrapped my head around the whole range of possibilities on wanikani. >.<
I am really serious about learning Japanese and have been studying it for two years, but the area I’m still by far worst in is kanji. I can write around 400, and read probably some 600 to 800. That’s why Wanikani seems perfect for me. Since I’m only 15, I can’t afford lifetime and my parents aren’t willing to buy it for me as a Christmas present. So, considering I can get a discount, the most sensible option is subscribing annually (which is already great, of course!). Now, my question is this: If I try to reach level 60 within a year, how much time do I have to invest in Wanikani every day?
I know there are userscript tricks allowing you to rearrange lessons, so you don’t lose single hours. And also, I have completed the first three levels already. So I would only have to do 56 levels in a year (after which I can purchase lifetime for 60$). Is that correct? If I use all this information responsibly, how many hours a day would I have to be on wanikani on average?
Thanks a lot in advance!
PS: As a secondary question for those who have done wanikani at full speed: How much life were you actually left with when you did it? lol
In my personal case, the thing is that I am also in an “elite” sort of programme that allows me to assist in university math courses and people are obviously expecting me to achieve, so I’m kind of worried how that may develop. But I am prepared to work as hard as I can!
