Let's climb Tokyo Skytree - level 60 in spring 2022

TBH the only word I never encountered was "ford’ which for me was only the brand. :stuck_out_tongue:

Wow, I never thought of that :joy:

You can add synonyms or mark it as correct answer. The goal is to learn the meaning and not the exact word used by WK :slight_smile:

I am still frustrated by a few words and it used to piss me of a bit in the past. But, I don’t mind too much about it these days, If I can’t remember 100 or 200 words out of 6000 JP words , I can live with that :wink: At the end of the day, the goal is to read/speak Japanese and WK is a milestone in that process not the end goal. Once we read enough material, our recall will automatically improve. I think having that perspective may help us with handling our frustrations better. :grin:

The second month of 2021, also known as February in some cultures, has passed and 82 new climbers have joined us. Welcome, welcome!

We’re now at a total of 643 climbers and I begin to wonder: How many active WK users are there? I don’t have a clue but this thread must unite a large share of them. Soon we will be able to overtake all of WaniKani :smiling_imp:

Oh, and some first climbers already reached the top. But one year too early! You were supposed to reach the top in spring 2022, people! Read the topic of the thread! :unamused: :grin:
No, seriously, you’re awesome :+1:

And the animated gif of course:

The last climb does so fast! These fast levels.
I won’t manage to increase my workload. Unless I abandon my 0 lesson 0 review streak before levelin up (by that I mean having a tray of vocab lesson that I’ll clear up later).
Don’t know what to do.
What to do, what to do.

If you can’t handle fast levels, just take your time. I’ve been trying to go fast too when the fast levels began. The fastest I got was something like 5 days, but since you just get dumped with vocab lessons after a level up, doing all those lessons at once felt like a chore to me and I couldn’t remember half of them at the next review. I hated it. I rather take my time and go at a steady pace. If you learn 10 kanji per day (and can remember them well), you still get a level up every 8 days or so. Later levels have only one radical and one kanji for that, so you are even allowed to make some mistakes for 2-3 kanji without it setting you back.
That said, I’m sure one can just ignore vocab lessons and the like, but I refuse to use black magic (some call them reorder scripts).

Right now my plan is to do as nothing changed:

  • On level up, do radical + 1/3 of the kanji. Complete with vocab until 21 (or 24) lessons are reached
  • Day 2: 1/3 of kanji, pad in vocab until 21 or 24 lessons
  • Day 3: rise and repeat
  • Day 4: morning, the last few vocab lessons. Afternoon, guru the radical & kanji, learn kanji, pad in vocab.

But this schedule will makes impossible to clear up the vocab by day 4, or so I think.
I’ll think about it.
