Let’s me first start by saying that I am certainly no veteran user of WaniKani. I used the application some 5-6 years ago, took a massive break, and now I’ve returned…for the 3rd time. What I adore about WaniKani is seeing soo many testimonials about how people have reached Level 60 in amount of time–I want to be that person, but studying Kanji that I have learned for several years now makes the process a lot harder; I get discouraged easily due to the fact that I convince myself that I don’t need to re-study the N5 and N4 level Kanji to any degree.
Which brings me to my point: Why is there no placement test or equivalent for WaniKani for the people who have studied Japanese for some time now? I’ve studied for about 3 and a half (going on 4?) years, and when I see the beginner level kanji, I want to kill myself. I’m sure this topic has probably come up tons of times, but I can honestly and wholeheartedly say that I’d be willing to dedicate ANY amount of money to WaniKani if I could focus solely on new content and content I often get wrong.
