I’m going to hit level 5 today! I’m very excited about it and I feel my knowledge growing so fast! I work with a Japanese expat who I can talk to about use cases and such. It makes the process so much more memorable and enjoyable!
Anyway, I’m coming up on two months of using WaniKani. Am I going slowly? I tend to do my reviews quickly and average around 88%.
What are your experiences with the rate of getting through levels?
Also, thanks for being such a great community!
With 20 days I am just wrapping up level 2, so it sounds to me like we’re at a very similar pace
Talking about it as objectively as (I) possible(y can).
4 levels in 2 months, considering (that maybe, iirc) the first 2 levels are fast levels, is a bit on the slow side, but it all depends how much previous knowledge you have.
If you had to learn hiragana and familiarize yourself with on/kun readings and all that, you’re probably fine. Also, if you’re usually busy, or just don’t prioritize WaniKani as much, 2 weeks is pretty good per level.
I went all 7-9 days levels until I didn’t, but because I had the time, and the drive (more or less).
It also feels longer to say you’re on level 4 after 2 months, than saying you do 2 weeks per level.
I had very little knowledge coming in. Knew a bit of hiragana but had to basically learn it all anew. So the first two levels took me 20+ days!
I want to work on speeding up my levels now. I installed some scripts and learned more about SRS.
I do work full time so I don’t think I’ll be able to get to one week per level but my goal right now will be 11 days per level!
Thanks for the info
Good luck on your journey.
Remember, use, don’t abuse the scripts.
