What's a good level to start the 4,500 sentences?


#1

Hi all :slight_smile:

I bought the 4,500 Japanese sentences from the store but subsequently realised I really don’t know enough yet for it to be useful to transcribe/make any sense.

Just wondered if anyone had an idea of the sort of level where you can start to understand/transcribe any/some/a worthwhile amount of sentences?

Thanks :slight_smile:

No specific answer, but with level 20 you should know ~75% of commonly used kanji and with level 30 ~85%, so reading anything is not so far off. You still need to know the grammar, though :wink:

You can see more charts here:

Thanks for the answer :slight_smile: I’ll try again at level 20 and see how I get on.

I’m using Bunpro and Pimsleur for grammar soo hopefully by level 20 I’ll be able to understand a few more sentences.

Thanks again <3

Other people will say there’s no answer, but it’s 8, 8 is the answer.
