Level 60 - Hello btw

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:

Why:
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.

How:
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

P.S. if you’re ever feeling down, check out the wanikani memes thread.

Is going to japan a prerequisite for reaching level 60 and people forgot to tell me?

Of course. Especially better if it’s Tokyo or another highly populated area because more Japanese to read and people to talk to. It’s impossible otherwise.
