If I wanted to write a date-range using tategaki, what would be the appropriate way? I want a memento that I actually completed WK, and I’d like to write one in vertical format.
I am trying to express that I reached WK level 60, between the years 2020 and 2022. Would the appropriate way to do this be:
2 T 2
0 E 0
2 X 2
2 T 0
Or is this completely, incomprehensibly unnatural, and should be scrapped for a different idea?
Speaking about the text, I was thinking 鰐蟹六十級, but dont know if 級, is the proper way to express “levels” in a short format. I’d rather have input now as to why that is wrong, than to realize I screwed up in a few years…
級 doesn’t mean “level” in a universal sense, I think. It’s more like “grade” or “rank” so you can be 1級 in something like shougi, chess, JLPT, or 上級 in language proficiency, but for arbitrary levels like WaniKani that would be レベル. Or at least to me 60級 would look mighty weird.
EDIT: in shougi and martial arts they’re called 段 (dan) in case someone’s wondering. Sorry for the earlier confusion.
