Never would I have imagined I could reach level 60 in 363 days. Consistency is not a word I relate to, but WaniKani has kept me so motivated throughout. I felt compelled to appease the Crabigator everyday (and will continue to do so until almost everything is burned).
I am so grateful to Koichi and the WaniKani team for producing such an amazing way of learning kanji. It was something I thought would be beyond me, but it just…works! WaniKani helped to remove the stigma that kanji was a gatekeeper to learning Japanese, and instead a really fun part of it!
I’m also grateful to the WaniKani community for your posts. I’m not the most active member, but your posts have been very encouraging. It was always nice to know that we were in the same boat, regardless of our circumstances.
So, what now? As the title suggests, I’ve come to realise more and more that there is so much more to learn besides kanji. Grammar is an absolute priority for me, and is something I neglected throughout. My listening comprehension is also not great. I hope my knowledge from WaniKani helps a bunch going into these in earnest!
Again, thank you WaniKani for making Japanese something seemingly unapproachable to an absolute blast to learn. I can’t begin to imagine the doors you have helped to open in my life.
