So I recently moved to Level 4, breaking past that free tier and becoming premium
Although not a big deal for me as I bought a lifetime account back when WaniKani was in beta. Having an account this old is actually causing one annoying thing though. My wkstats are horribly skewed, even though I reset my account (two or three times over the years actually) - but oddly enough its only level 2 which is messed up. See below:
Also the projection for level 60 is 2061…
Besides that though I’m really getting into the swing of getting through my reviews. Pacing my lessons is working as well. At level 3 I just did all of the lessons in the same session and found it took me ages to move through them. Big reviews where I’d get around 50%. With level 4 I tried to do around 15 lessons a day. It’s possible that this will make me take longer to learn everything, sure - but it helps keep the motiviation there when I can consistently be at least 75%+ in reviews.
Out of curiosity… I’m going to Japan for 3 weeks at the end of the year. Assuming I got to level 20-25 before then (and kept going through Genki for grammar) how much do you think would be possible on my own? Obviously not expecting to be able to read newspapers or information plaques - but would it be possible to read signs, restaurant menus, etc (at least be able to get a “… I THINK it might mean this…” level of understanding)?
