Partners into Pain Level 11 in April 2019

I’m going to be heading into the pain levels pretty soon too!
I’m a bit apprehensive about it, but it’s probably not going to be a lot different from before, right? Right? :sweat_smile:

It seems like I take around 9 to 13 days per level, recently, but I think I’m probably going to be slowing down now, since there’s other things I need to do too. Though with WaniKani’ being so fun, it’s sometimes hard not to get distracted…

I’m in pain now! I previously was going at 7/8 days per level but currently the new stuff are harder, i need “cool down” days where i dont learn stuff and just review (or I’ve screwed up during the new kanji review sessions and got extended). Currently going about 12 days per level

Lets study together! :star_struck:

Scripts, scripts, scripts is the ansUltimate%20timeline%20with%20next%20review%20details wer. Since I got them I am getting less than 8 days to a level (but once I just rested for 4 days after levelling up)!
And WK Companion on Android as well as the www.wkstats.com website
There are other places to get information on scripts, but I like the Ultimate Time Line best of all, with reordering scripts coming in a close second.

Right now I am leaving my Vocabulary to stew while I get the new kanji and radicals onto Apprentice 3. Then I hit the new vocab at about 15 a day (actually the reorder causes my lessons to crash so it is too frustration to do a hundred at a time anyway!) and then start drilling the all my apprentice vocab from the previous level on my cellphone. Once things Guru I let SRL do its darndest to put them into my long term memory.

I’m level thirteen but it would be fun to have some company through the pain of the next few months :smile:

Since I’ve got over 100 apprentice items and around 450 guru items, I’m putting myself on a lesson cool down for two, maybe three days, so I can get those numbers down.

do you have a reorder script? If you do then it pays to just do lessons until the first vocab comes up then stop and work on getting your apprentice items down. For me Guru stays high no matter what I do so I don’t worry about that as long as I keep moving…

That timeline script is a wonder! Just knowing when you have to be on WK makes the world of difference…

I just entered Level 11 (into the painful realm) a couple of weeks ago. The very first post I made about it, I said it really wasn’t that painful, but it actually is! My speed in WaniKani is slowing down because of it. I wish you and myself good luck. This is now becoming a painful journey, but the cake is worth it, right? xD

I left Japan 20 years ago with a level of Japanese that was not a marketable skill. I hope to change that, but there is a looong way to go! But if I get there, it will be worth it…

Hiiiiii I’ve been on Level 12 for about a week now and only got to some of its kanji today :upside_down_face:

Finally hit 11, but still trying to clear more from level 10 before I can hit the level 11 stuff. Been definitely slowing down, but still motivated.

Do the radicals and kanji if you have a reorder script, they are pretty simple and there are not that many of them this time.

My last level went by too fast somehow and I couldn’t catch up lessons-wise so I did a bunch at once. Now I want to get to about ~130 apprentice before I do the lessons for the tempting level 15 kanji. Let’s see if my patience beats my impulse to just power through it…

I have just arrived on Level 12. Got my first radical review right now, and the Kanji pile in the morning (I intend to sleep) I use reorder so I get those out the way before any vocab. BUT the vocab lessons are waiting… as are about 250 vocab reviews. Maybe this time I will slow down… I see you didn’t @Juichi since you are now also on Level 12! The pain is in the volume of vocab for me… The pain of letting them lie fallow while I forge ahead towards my January Level 48… Opening 60 is theoretically possible, but serious burnout threatens…
Can anyone @Leebo confirm what the new quick levels are, or how to find out?
