Inspiration for you slow durtles

hey guys,

throughout WK I’ve been doing 3-9 lessons a day. I do this because there was a point where I felt really uncomfortable around level 8. Idk why but I just wasn’t remembering the kanji for that level well at all. Vocab wasn’t much of an issue and I don’t think radicals are that hard for most people, but the kanji was killing me.

I resolved that I’d go slow so that it never happened again and I could enjoy my slow but steady wanikani experience.

That’s all well and good. At the end of the day it’s not a race unless you’re jrspierera (unsure of spelling).

Anyway recently I decided maybe I should take on more workload and see how I handle it. Normally I get around 80% accuracy rate. Somehow, despite taking on more lessons than ever before, I just scored a 92% on 100 flash cards, and I did them FAST. My progress bars on each item are nearly identical and it feels so good.

For those of you going slow… Maybe TRY going fast for a bit! It could… help… oddly enough. Idk if I’ll stay at this speed, but if I don’t, I’ll definitely be doing “surges” of lessons every now and then cause this is great progress. I just hit lvl 12 and I’m almost done it already.

Maybe this new found superpower will allow me to correctly answer my biggest leech… “annually”

Your accuracy has increased because you’ve got more immediate short term items in your queue, whereas before your review queue probably consisted mostly of late guru-enlightened items, which are more difficult for obvious reasons. At least that’s been my experience and the experience of coaching my friends who were also going VERY slowly
