How to decide how many items per day one should do.
You’ll need to use the reorder script for this.
There’s 3 different types of items:
- radicals (Group 1)
- kanji (Group 1)
- vocabulary (Group 2)
Divide average number of vocab in a level by the number of words you can learn per day while maintaining an efficiency around 85% to 95% in reviews (100% means it’s too easy for you and that you can learn more). Example:
Your 85 to 95% number is 10 words/day.
130 words per level/10 words a day = 13 day level.
This vocabulary will be spread throughout the level.
Now let’s think about the other 2 types of items:
- Radicals should not be a problem. Even in higher levels, you’ll easily get less than 10 radicals per level.
- Kanji come in two batches: the ones available right after leveling up and the ones unlocked after guru’ing the radicals.
With this last point, you can then divide each level in two phases:
- Radicals + 1st batch of kanji (Phase 1)
- 2nd batch of kanji (Phase 2)
Again, vocabulary will be spread throughout the level.
Assuming that the time spent guru’ing radicals + 1st batch of kanji = guru’ing 2nd batch of kanji:
13 days per level give you 6 and a half days to finish each phase. This means that:
- You’ll have to do the radicals right away after leveling up.
- You’ll have to spread the first batch of kanji throughout the first 6 and half days.
- You’ll have to do the 2nd batch of kanji around the day you unlocked them.
- All the vocabulary will be spread throughout both Phase 1 and 2.
- All numbers are based on my initial example of 10 words a day. You should adapt the number based on your abilities, routine and goals.
- The number of vocab per level decreases the higher the level is. 130 words/level was an example.
Find the numbers that work for you Eventually, you’ll be able to have an organized routine on WK in terms of how your progress should look like
