As the title already says, I am stuck at level 6 for a while now. Things were going fine until level 5, I had a pleasant pace and quite high accuracy, but since the last level up I am struggling with the sheer amount of daily reviews and new kanji and vocabulary. Before I usually managed to do all my reviews daily without investing a huge amount of time, but now it just got too much. I don’t have time to invest an hour or more daily, so the reviews just keep piling up and I never even see zero, let alone have time to get into the new stuff. So whenever I manage to add 5 or 10 new kanji or vocabulary, they get immediately buried in the reviews and it might take a few days until I get to review them. Which means the time between seeing them is way to long, so until they appear again, I already forgot them, which makes the review pile grow again. So because I can’t keep up with the rewies, also my accuracy dropped significantly, and the review pile increases mercilessly, with my motivation decreasing every time I see the numbers rising.
Any idea how to get out of this? Or how did you make it past level 6? And does it actually get better afterwards, or do you simply have to invest a lot of time daily to use wanikani?
And if nothing helps: any tips for similar programs, where I can actually learn at my own pace, without getting burned out and unmotivated?
