Hi!! I haven’t posted in a while but I’ve been chugging along and recently made it to level 31. I think this might of been around the level I was last time I reset.
I’m so glad to have finally found a system that I can comfortably stick to even when life gets overwhelming. It almost feels like Wanikani has become this passive habit I have in the background that I don’t have to really worry about.
But also thank god I bought a lifetime sub right out the gate. Haha. I can absolutely see myself chugging along at this rate until I hit level 60, but that won’t be for a while. For me, that means around October 2023!
Made it to level 27 after thirteen days! I’m also on lesson 22 of Minna no Nihongo, so I have just four more chapters left of the first beginner’s textbook before I move on to the second! I’m pretty excited for that.
Miraculously, I actually managed to catch up on the 大海原と大海原 book club, just in time for the last chapter! However, I have some DDT translations to do, haha, and I suspect that might set me back a little , but I’m going to try to finish the book by the time I’m supposed to!
this is so wonderful and lovely ! you’ve found a routine that makes learning stress-free and a natural part of your life now so cool !
i think about this all the time haha i am so grateful i did this too (my partner at the time and i gifted eachother lifetime subscriptions for christmas). in the moment it’s a big expense but when you think about how many hours we spend using wk it’s sooo worth it – and buying lifetime ensures no time pressures or stresses
recently posted in the 0:0 challenge but I wanted to post in here too to keep me accountable. I’m nearing my first full year of wk. I’m only lvl 8 and that has me feeling a little anxious BUT i’ve made it to 0:0! I can do it! I want to reach lvl 10 before it’s been a full year. I’ve got a couple of months and if I stay at it like i have been recently I’ll make it. Life had me in it’s grips last year and I had to put wk on pause but I’m back and I’m steadily, consistently, making my way!
Level 28! Took just under fourteen days. I’m on lesson 23 of MNN, and also just started reading the third volume of 大海原と大海原 along with the book club. It’s a little intimidating because it’s aimed at a much older audience than the first two, so I accidentally graduated out of children’s manga with furigana a little earlier than expected . But I’ve been able to read it so far!
Day 35 on level 11 (does that get me a durtling award?); but I’m watching the number of kanji I’ve passed increasing, finally, after the initial radicals got out of the way (now at 20 out of 35), so it’s not hopeless. The end is in sight.
Made it to level 29! I’m getting so close to leaving the Death levels. I spent almost fourteen days on level 28.
I’m also really close to finishing the first Minna no Nihongo book! I’m on lesson 25 right now, which is the last lesson in the first beginner’s book. I should be finished by the time I level up again!
Is it still possible to sign up for the scenic route? I’ve finally reached level five, 5 days ago, and haven’t had a single lesson of that level. I still have sooo many vocab lessons from level 4 (around 95 lessons unlocked right now). It will probably take me a month alone to get through those lessons … That probably qualifies me, right?
Always! The scenic route never closes
Any level and any speed lower than full speed qualifies.
Full speeders can still jog by our path to say hello too, all is welcome here to help guide the way and share each other on.
