Let there be cake! ( A Lv. 60 post)

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 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

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.
