Hi I have been lurking for a bit but this is my first post, so hello!
I completed level 60 a few days ago, not sure why my badge on the forums hasn’t updated yet. (hopefully this post isn’t premature)
Not one for many words but here are a few things:
Before visiting Japan in Jan 2019, I learned some hiragana and katakana ahead of the trip and it was fun being able to “read” things, of course I had no idea what I was saying. The friend I went with was using wanikani so I gave it a go when I got back and didn’t stop.
I mainly used the tsurukame app for iOS, not a big fan of the web and the app was helpful when I had minor spelling mistakes. It is also open source which is fun and since I am an iOS developer by trade I had made some very minor changes and submitted feedback.
I had attached my wkstats graphs, as you can see I took a long break before deciding to dive in and pay for level 4 onwards so subtracting that it took me 2 years and a few months. I could have gone faster but again I took some breaks between levels for my own sanity and to learn some grammar.
I plan on continuing with wanikani until my review queues die down a bit. Hopefully make it back out to Japan next year and immerse myself.
Thanks for reading
