How bad do you want to learn Japanese? After 11 levels (and for other newbies like me, after three free levels), how do you find wanikani? If you feel it’s good and suitable for you to go all the way, how long do you expect to burn all wanikani items? Let’s say you take it slow and burn everything by 3 years. That’s 36 months. 200/36= 5.56. 5.56x4=22.22. Let’s round it up to 22.50.
Thats 22.50 of your currency per month you spent learning Japanese. What can you buy with 22.50 in your country? What other things you spend more than 22.50 every month and you have nothing to show for it?
That’s my motivation to take the lifetime plunge. I won’t rush to finish this (it’s not like I can, I have work and family). Definitely not less than 1.5 years just to make it to level 60. WKstats says it’ll be sometime in 2020!
To me, no point in doing 30+ lessons per session, then not able to recall correctly, then be burdened by tonnes of reviews, then burnout, then give up. Been there done that. Take fewer lessons per day if it makes you recall better. We’re in this for the long haul.
Come to think of it, the longer you take to finish, the more you get your money’s worth.
