New People Questions! ~~~<3 [Lost?! Confused?! We're here to help!]

It is time based, you get the burns after around 6 months into WK. You’re just too fast :wink:


Hmm… I’ve been a member since March tho. So maybe I’m actually just slow XD or I’ve failed the potential burns I’ve gotten :woman_shrugging:

Of course YOU would ask something like that.

I’m excited to see what you’re coming up with next.

Hello, everyone!

New at using WaniKani. At level 2 right now.

What is the pace of new lessons you guys take everyday? Pretty sure taking everything in one fell swoop is healthy way in doing it.

Also, is there discord server for fellow beginner to talk in japanese. It would be very helpful immersion-wise.

Welcome to wanikani! At the start is best just doing all the lessons available to get in the swing of things. Once you’re settled in then the number of reviews steadily goes up as stuff you did a few weeks ago comes round again. Some people like to keep going full throttle. Some like to slow it down then to keep the time commitment getting overwhelming.

I found doing enough lessons to aim to level up every two weeks was quite a nice pace, although I’ve recently slowed down to 6 new lessons a day to give me time to work on my grammar and reading. That gives me a manageable pace of about 50 reviews a day.

One disadvantage of going at maximum pace is that you have big hits where lots of reviews come up at once. A steady number of lessons each day keeps a bit of a smoother review load each day.

Good luck with the studying. You’ll need to pay once you’ve finished level 3 to keep going. There were special offers on lifetime subscriptions around Christmas last year.


Sounds good. Thank you!

I think I’ll pace myself a bit to make the free trial time last for a while before christmas coming. Hopefully there will be another discount for subscription again.

Hey I am trying to knock out my intro post. Just replying randomly to get this done. I’m Nick let’s learn Japanese yay!


Hi Nick; from what i understand, if you have a monthly or yearly subscription, they will subtract the remaining time period should you choose to upgrade to lifetime. According to, I’m expected to level up on Monday to level four. I will then get a monthly plan so when the sale comes up I think it will be added to it.
What I’m trying to say is that if you can keep up with the pace you’re going at, I personally don’t think you should limit yourself. At the very least keep up all your reviews. Good Luck!

I’m not sure you are replying to the right person, but we’re in the same position! If there price is in pro rata basis, I’ll bite the bullet, purchase the monthly plan, and goes full throttle at it.

Good luck to you, as well!

Hello, loving this app so far, but there is a problem: Is it normal that the notes I type into the notes-box via the browser on my PC aren’t showing up in the mobile-app-version? (and vice versa) It would be really helpful if there was a way to fix this. Thank you!

I’ve been out of the loop for a while, but it used to be the case that all available wanikani mobile apps are third party apps, not managed by (the owners of) the site whatsoever.

I would suggest directing your feedback to the owner of the app.

Unless something changed in the last year or so, then you can ignore this.

If you’re using the WK app that I am using, then it’s probably because the app is third party

Thank you for the answer, didn’t know the app is third party, makes sense. Would be cool if there was an app that would transfer the notes from the pc to the phone, but it isn’t really essential or that important for my studies. cheers

A small question perhaps submitted to the wrong place:
I’ve recently started using Kaniwani in addition to wanikani. The word ‘entrance’ appeared, to which I replied 入口 by mistake (meant to write 入り口) and Kaniwani told me it was wrong. Supposedly both are correct, and I can imagine questions around okurigana will apply to other words as well.

Does anyone know a workaround for this?
(things went quite fast, so it’s possible i misread my own submission, my apologies in advance if that’s the case)
