I would like to hear stories from anyone living in japan or that used this website solely for their Japanese lessons

I wouldn’t recommend using WaniKani as your sole source of Japanese learning, nor would many people, I think. There is, in fact, an excellent thread called The Ultimate Additional Japanese Resources List! where you can find all the things that have been recommended for people to help reinforce their learning.

WaniKani is primarly for teaching the most common Kanji and Vocabularly, but won’t teach you a lick of grammar, so no, this can’t be your sole source for learning. It’s great at what it does though - which is provide a structured system for memorising 2000 Kanji and around 6000 vocab items :slight_smile:
