This is a crazy goal for me.
This is a crazy goal for me.
RE italki. I have had about 20 lessons so far and was very lucky with my teachers. This is my advice:
Level 52 vocab is the toughest I have seen so far. Loads of abstract meanings and strange readings. I have around 40 I cannot shift to Apprentice 2 and I level up tomorrow (to be fair, I have been neglecting them a bit)
Something to look forward to for when you hit 53!
After 80 days on Level 7 (I’m sure we all can agree that 2020, was ROUGH), I have reached Level 8! While it may seem small, I’m super proud to have pushed through and look forward to more consistency in 2021!
Oh hello there from me spent 60+ days on lv6. Let me bring a bit of encouragement for you:
Consistent studies are doable even after such a turtle-style beginning! Let’s overcome our weaknesses!
Thank you for great guidelines and hints! Now I feel myself a quite confident. Still have to get new phone though, since italki is refusing to support Android 4 of my pre-historic Galaxy S3.
So true. Scrolling now through the teacher list on italki web and bookmarking some of them and it’s hard not to fall into cuteness trap. Always have to remind myself I’m here for language skills and keep my reason sense awake.
Still, it’s a faint edge between aforesaid and just a pleasant teacher I’d happy to talk with, w/o interfering thoughts.
Climbed out of the “Pleasant” category today and took my first step into “Painful”… Feels…good?
No it feels great, keep going everyone!
Oh no. How much trouble did you have with the level 49 vocab?
hello! this looks fun! i hope i can make it!
At the pace I am going all the levels sort of merge into one to be honest!
I’m sure I have apprentice items from the last few levels floating about, plus items I keep failing at enlightened level, which is becoming quite tough for me also. I’ve got 234 apprentice items, easily more than I’ve ever had, and it’s been rising ever since I hit the fast levels.
I am managing to get the review queue down right now, but if it becomes unbearably so I might have to slow down. We’ll see!
(Reordering reviews is a big part of the problem, sometimes I do neglect the vocab and it comes back around to bite me)
Day 1 for me, but I’m on board for the long haul.
joining the group - mostly a lurker but love the motivation and positive energy of this group
@KyokaJiro still here ?
Just a reminder do your reviews😁
From 36 to 37 in 15 days 20 hours, faster than the last 4
I’m excited for 37, because it has some useful Kanji for Monster Hunter like 弾 and 爆
Ugh, all these enlightens but no burns are making me antsy. It sucks because I know I won’t have my first burns until March and that’s just too far away for me >:(
Thanks for remembering @Stay_coolXD san
I am still here I have a backlog of posts on this thread. I have been preparing for an exam in IRL (unrelated to Japanese), so I haven’t been spending a lot of time on the forum in the new year. Hopefully things will be back to normal in 2-3 weeks.
How is your journey going along in the new year?
Good luck with your exams
Doing great. Hopefully will be reaching 地獄 levels . In a few days kinda excited and scared of vocabs🙃
What’s this? The first observation deck? So neat!
But I’ll continue to aim for the top.
