Last week, after 416 days of Wanikani, I hit level 60…and then I made a Japanese Cheesecake to celebrate!
When I started Wanikani, I had just learned Furigana and Katakana the week before. I didn’t know any Japanese. For me, finding Wanikani was invaluable. It took the stress out of learning Kanji and introduced me to words I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. It also gave me structure, which is invaluable to someone like me who has anxiety and OCD.
In addition to studying Kanji, I am using Bunpro for grammar. I generally learn three points at a time there and then use the other resources I have (Tae Kim and Japanese grammar dictionaries) to solidify my knowledge. I can pretty comfortable read beginner to intermediate text. I am also able to play through VNs as long as I have my dictionary handy for new words.
From here, I plan on continuing to go through my grammar studies and learning more Kanji after I burn what I have in my backlog.
Anyway, here is the breakdown of my levels!
Congrats on hitting level 60!
also I love the cake, it’s so cute
the cake is absolutely gorgeous and since you already have one, please have a cuppa to go with that
Level 60 requires persistence and dedication.
congratulations! and what an amazing cake!
That cake is adorable!
Congratulations on reaching the top!
Congratulations! Well done!
That cake made my morning! It’s a delight! Well done on the big six-zero and best of luck with everything that comes next!
Congrats on that massive achievement !!!
I also own grammar dictionaries and I was wondering how are you using them, do you come across a grammar point that you don’t know and then look into them to find it or you read the whole dictionary to know it all ?
Best of luck on your future studies
Congratulations! You made a quite a speed run thru WK. And this cake is AMAZING!
I love that you made a cake. I can’t wait to make my own “graduation” cake when I get to 60 next year.
If I come across a grammar point I don’t know, I’ll read about it. But also, since I am using Bunpro, my grammar points come in sets of three. I read all of the information that Bunpro gives on the point, then I read all of the example sentences. From there, I look them up in the grammar dictionary. If I still don’t have a good grasp, I refer to Tae Kim. I try to read something everyday and some of the points come up more than others.
congratulations! Love your cake…
