Ladies and Gentlemen, here is my “I reached Level 60” post!
I cannot believe I made it this quickly; my first daughter was born exactly four days after starting (last year`s March 12th) and this past year has been far from being quiet and easy for me.
While WK is obviously not perfect - nothing is - I could not have imagined going from knowing only the very basics kanji’s to reading magazine and books for native Japanese speakers, in many cases without the need of any vocabulary. Moreover, this forum has been a constant source of motivation and inspiration, and helped me through the hard times. So, my heartfelt thank you goes to the amazing WK Team.
The only advice I can give to those committed to reach the end is: be patient, go through your reviews daily, and just enjoy the journey. There will be up and downs, but consistency will allow you to go through everything!
Here is my progress bar:
Even though I took a couple of little breaks (mostly after long journeys), I believe I can be proud of this pace.
Now, it is really time to start enjoying using Japanese; as I am based in Tokyo, there will be plenty of chances, especially as soon as this awful COVID19 emergency ends.
Furthermore, I cannot wait to invest the time I previously allocated daily to WK (which, especially after the
fast levels easily exceeded the 1.5 hr/day) to books and magazines!
Have a safe journey everyone,
