Congrats! I kept seeing your level climb up there as I lurked about. I feel so slow when I see those charts of how fast everyone levels. I want to go a little faster. Any tips? :wolf:

Don’t worry about how fast other people are going, go at the pace that is comfortable for you. If you really want to go fast, follow this guide https://community.wanikani.com/t/wanikani-is-too-slow-and-the-radicals-are-useless-also-why-cant-i-just-level-up-in-one-day-instead-of-7/27040/51?u=rysingdragon

Thank you! :wolf::sparkles:

And RysingDragon beat me to it, but yeah that guide written by @jprspereira is awesome and comprehensive in explaining how to level at an effective pace ^^

For me, and as mentioned in that guide, I use the reorder script to prioritize the new unlocked radicals and kanji so that I can do those lessons first and get them into my review queue, then I split up the vocab lessons over the remainder of the level (i.e. I always make sure to do all my vocab lessons before the next level up). Then I try to do the reviews for those radicals and kanji as soon as they’re available (for max leveling speeds)

As you keep leveling, you’ll find that you get better at learning Japanese, and learning the new kanji and vocab will become easier! But don’t worry about “going fast”, as long as you’re moving forward at a pace comfortable to you, you’re doing incredible progress in my books ^^

Thank you! I think part of the problem is the time I do my reviews. I did recently get the reorder script for the start of level six and it is nice. Anyway congrats again! :wolf:

those 3d10hr levels… i did 46 alone at max speed, and then faced with like 200 lessons i couldn’t imagine keeping up that pace. let alone waking up in the middle of the night for some of those… @_@

welcome to the forumcongrats!

Can you give any advice as far as the 3 day levels go? I just hit 49.

And I agree with @bblum I did level 46 fast. And then on 47 on 炊 and put COOKING instead of COOK and pressed enter too fast right when it was going to GURU and messed up my streak. I was so angry. Haha.

It’s so stressful making sure you’re right every time and getting your reviews done.

Also how did you handle the wave of reviews piling up?

It was definitely pretty crazy the first couple times around, but tbh you just get used to it! I kinda don’t remember what it was like not going at this 3 day pace, it kinda took over my life for a bit there :laughing: but thank you! All that matters is that you make it to 60, I’ll be seeing you there! ^^
