万人 used to be at level 5 and now its at 42? I understand that Wanikani moves words and kanji around to try and make it easier to learn concepts and words (like separating intransitive and transitive verbs).
I only noticed this as I like to skim through all my stats and noticed the 公 got moved to level 10 as it was the only kanji burned in that level. So I got wondering what word or kanji got moved the farthest back and for me it was 万人. I understand maybe moving this word away from other words like 一人 or 三人 as those words are more about counting people while 万人 is more a phrase used to say a lot of people or all people.
Not that I’m asking this to be changed I just think its kinda funny. Imagine getting to level 42 just to see one of the words you’re learning is a word that uses two kanji you learn at the very beginning of your journey.
Probably due to the fact that many use WK as their main tool to learn japanese (for some reason) and to mitigate that they use fairly uncommon and out of place words when they go to hellotalk to do their basic conversations.
its weird, i cant find it now. i literally did it this morning in my review and “learned” it a few weeks ago. i thought it was so odd when it came up with new vocab bc I could have sworn i had learned it already. idk, maybe living here in Japan i’ve seen it somewhere multiple times and have imagined this whole experience. lmao
