I update too, but I do wonder sometimes if the thread has died haha
With the personal leaderboards gone, I also don’t have a good way of congratulating people anymore
Don’t give up, everyone! Keeping regularity like this in your life is super helpful for not losing your mind in quarantine Remember why you started and why you have come so far, we can all do this, we’re in this together!!
Hey guys! I’m not an Olympian, but I’m curious if there are any other groups that are running that I may be able to join? I just started WaniKani last month, so I’m looking for something that is still a year or so out. I tried looking through the site, and maybe I’m missing everything, but I don’t see much.
And last but not least, @cephaus! Don’t forget Wanikani over all that Animal Crossing
Most level ups!
A clear winner, @madtapa with 9, get it, 9 level-ups!!
EDIT: basically 10, the new level-up was practically minutes after my post
You are all doing an amazing job! I hope you’re all staying safe and washing your hands/paws/etc.! Don’t forget to call your loved ones, take care of each other even from a distance
And don’t neglect yourselves either. If you’re in need, there are new Corona-related local hotlines in almost every area.
Oh, one more. @konsei! I don’t know if you leveled up
Because of the name-change, my leaderboard doesn’t know what your old level was… But in any case, whatever you’re onto right now, be it life or Wanikani, I bet you’re rocking it!!
Congrats for 32!
I usually congratulate only those that are on my leaderboard, since that is the only way to reliably spot level changes. I added you to mine now
I’ve noticed that it is posiible to sneak into leaderboards by just persistingly congratulating others on this thread… If someone knows that they are on someone’s leaderboard, it will motivate them to reciprocate. At least that is how I feel.
I love the leader board! I have mostly put people I talk with on it, without their knowing, secretly trying to catch up to those ahead of me, keep up with those around me and don’t lag behind
And also keeping an eye on my friends progress, to see how they are doing
Half the people on my list are from around the time I joined 3 years ago
Go sow turtles!
Pretty much, yeah. I put people on my leaderboard that I recognize, those that are sorta-active Olympians-posters, congratulate others or just post often in other threads. I didn’t mean to exclude anyone, I just try to keep my leaderboard in a state where I’m excited about every level up
Thank you @avalia! Big congrats to you and all your progress as well Only one more level!!
To be honest, it feels strange to think I have less than ten levels to go. According to wkstats’ charts, apparently I’m supposed to be able to read 97% of kanji used on Twitter, 99% on NHK Easy, 97% on Wikipedia… though it doesn’t quite feel like I can.
Or rather, I definitely can’t comprehend as much as I feel like I should be able to by now, if that makes sense? It’s a little disheartening, but perhaps it’s a result of sorely lacking grammar skills that’s making me feel that way, and that’s my own fault.
Don’t be too hard on yourself, a language is more than just pure studying, I bet if you go out of your way to read and listen and watch as much japanese content as possible, you’ll get used to it in no time
I had a series on netflix, scams, that I couldn’t understand anything of in the first episode but decided to stick with it as an experiment, by the second episode I already felt so much more comfortable with the weird yakuza-speech.
and this might just be my personal opinion but does grammar really need to be studied? our brains are so good at finding patterns and grammar is really regular for the most part…
