So I am planning on spending the next year or two on wani kani and getting level 60. I am just wondering, what I will know at 60? I know I will have learned about 2000 kanji and 6000 vocabulary, and when I have done that what will I be able to do? Is that enough to read a lot of japanese or is it just the start of my vocabulary knowledge? Any help would be appreciated
Depends on what else you’ve done during that time. If you only used WaniKani you’ll be able to do basically nothing. If you are also learning grammar, you should be able to read some manga and books with heavy use of a dictionary (so to your other question, it’s just the start of your vocab knowledge).
With that said, if you do learn grammar and some other vocab while using WaniKani, there’s plenty you can do before level 60. I think I read my first book starting around level 35.
Okay, perfect. Thanks! I am studying grammar and such, but had to take a break the last 40 days or so to finish all my college finals, but I am back on the path to 60!
This gets brought up every so often. If you search around the forum, you’ll find threads like
WK is a kanji tool that covers quite a number of useful vocab. But you’ll have to work on grammar, further vocab (WK doesn’t always focus on the most common words, since it focusses on teaching you readings), and basically everything else outside of WK.
It took me a while to get in a good learning routine with WK before I could properly flesh out my studies, but it were those other learning resources that got me to be able to use what I learn with WK. If I did WK alone, I wouldn’t be able to use any of the things I learned, and I’d be forgetting it all again.
Take some time to get used to WK. Get a habit in place that you can spend every day learning. WK lessons and reviews will become something you’re used to, and then you can expand to include other proficiencies as well. ^^
