Hello! I’m a bit new to this, I’ve only been using WK for about a month now and aside from making a single reply it’s just been grinding out the reviews and lessons when they’re available. I’ve seen posts of people saying that they pace themselves to do a certain amount of lessons everyday, or that they’re getting new lessons everyday to do. I find that I get a handful of lessons whenever I do enough reviews (and the pile that comes from a new level with new radicals) but I don’t ever really feel like I need to go at a pace, and quickly run dry and am just stuck to doing reviews.
I don’t have an issue with this, as my reviews are a bit rocky sometimes and I do need the extra practice to get the readings and meanings down, I just want to know if the pace of lessons delivered increases at some point to where I will need to start pacing myself and only doing a certain amount everyday, or if this is just a case of different people working at different speeds.
How it works is: lessons are unlocked by either advancing the prerequisites of the lesson to guru (for kanji lessons the prerequisites are the component radicals, and for vocabulary lessons, the prerequisites are the component kanji), or by leveling up (you level up by advancing a level’s kanji items to guru level). The more items you unlock and review, the more lessons you’ll be unlocking as you go along.
I think you’ll benefit from reading The Ultimate Guide to Wanikani, it explains absolutely everything:
I’d only disagree in the scripts chapter. I like all the informative, display-more-data-type ones, but I think it’s perfectly possible to do wanikani without messing with the functionality. I’m talking about lesson reordering and double-check. matter of opinion.
