I’ve been keeping up with wanikani “ritually” for almost a whole year now.
I’ve done my reviews as they appeared. And learned my lessons as soon they showed up. I’ve had my ups and downs. Sometimes I fell back with 500-700 review backlog and I’ve caught up over the course of days.
The point is - the curve was manageable and I had a goal I was able to achieve and work for.
- 1 - 10 - roughly about 30-50 reviews per day.
- 10 - 20 - roughly about 50-90 reviews per day.
- 20 - 30 - roughly 90-150 reviews.
But now… ever since 30-36… I’ve been constantly given 180-220 reviews to do everyday.
It takes me usually about 11-12 days to progress each level. Sometimes faster, but that is my average.
After I finally got past 36, more or less exhausted, as I was approaching the “Paradise” barrier, level 37 stumped me and I’m ready to give up.
300-400 reviews per day. Sometimes 250, other times 190. Rarely 400 but it happened. 300 is rather common.
This is more than I can manage. Is this normal? If it is, I am unsure if this is sane.
I want to know what people’s opinion is of this.
I keep hearing “Paradise” gets worse. If 500 reviews becomes a daily thing, then I think lvl 37 is where I will stop.
