I wondered if anyone else would like to share their stories of what WaniKani (and learning Japanese) means to them.
I have been working essentially the same job at the same place for the past ten years. I’ve gone as far as I can go, basically. I like what I do (electronics production technician), but I am rarely challenged to really exercise the brain cells, it’s all “burned” information, to put it in WK terms.
Taking on Japanese is what keeps me relatively sane. Kanji even more so, as it exercises several parts of the brain… I can’t think of anything else that would give me such a thorough mental workout as learning to speak and read a language that is so foreign to my native English that there is no root language, no shared symbols, etc.
How about you?
