I am currently on level 48 and will hit level 49 in about 10 hours after only 7 days at level 48. What I am noticing is that as you get up in levels Wanikani gets easier. I feel that it is due to the following:
- Upper level have fewer radicals and kanji per level so less to learn and remember.
- Most of the upper level kanji are based on radicals learned in the lower levels so it is easier to figure out the meaning by looking at the radicals in the upper levels.
- By the time you get into the 40’s you are starting to notice that certain radicals in a kanji control the pronuciation and you get used to those and know how to say the kanji as soon as you see it.
- For me the closer I get to level 60 the more motivate I get to finish so I seem to try harder.
