I decided to commit to learning Japanese early in 2016. I always sucked especially at kanji and I thought Wanikani would be a great tool to stay motivated for learning kanji at a consistent rate.
I figured I’d try and take a JLPT test to check my progress, and I had the difficult decision between N3 and N4. I thought N4 would be too easy, but N3 would be a really big challenge. I decided to go for N3, and as the test came up I realised I was pretty far behind the amount of Kanji I needed to know as I was only at about 70% of the required amount at the time.
Ended up taking the test on the day, really ended up struggling on Section 1/2, but did well on the listening component. Wasn’t expecting to pass but results came back today and I was very pleasantly surprised.
I guess all I really wanted to say is that I’m glad I decided to go with Wanikani, and I’m hoping here’s to another year of Kanji/Japanese studying progress!
