That’s it. A plush toy would make my WK experience complete.
But to offer some encouragement to other newbies like me, this has been much greater for my Japanese learning than I expected, and I regret waiting so long to jump in. I’ve been trying for years to learn Japanese (off and on), and always thought learning to read would be too tiresome and not worth the enormous effort. Because I’m kind of an old and thought my learning capacity somewhat limited.
I was so, so wrong! Before jumping in to WK, Japanese was just a jumble of syllables, and I couldn’t make any sense of the words I was learning. Even at level 8, though, I’m better able to connect the dots between the sounds and the meaning and how words are related. If anyone’s thinking about whether or not they should jump into the WK pool… do it. You’ll gnash your teeth through the first five levels or so as you’re stuck in the shallow end. But pull on those floaties – you’ll be happy you did!
