I’m leveling about once a month, taking time to learn all vocab before moving forward. I realize this is an ambiguous question but am I going too slow? My concern is that I have a lot of items burned (see dash below), therefore I’m not seeing them much anymore. Is that a problem?
I’m starting to really hunker down on learning the N3 material in time to take a stab at it in December (passed the N4 last year). I work full time, have a wife (who is Japanese hence the learning) and other interests so I don’t have hours and hours a day to study. Even at this pace I find WaniKani can take up a lot of time. 100 - 150 reviews a day tends to take me around 45 minutes to an hour with around a 75% correct average. My memory is slow.
I get that the point is to encounter all this information in the “wild” but lately I’ve been feeling frustrated with WaniKani as I know it’s taking away time from grammar study and reading native material, which is the whole point of all this. God forbid I miss a day or two then I’m spending two or more hours catching up. I know WaniKani is working though. I’ve been in Japan the last two weeks and its very noticeable how much more I can read since I was here last year.
Any advice, experience, etc here?
Thanks and sorry for the long ramble,
