    I started learning Japanese properly a couple of months ago, I tried a little before then but never like I am now, I don’t know a lot yet and I’m not expecting to be able to speak or understand much for a while but I already feel snowed under.
    I mean, I am halfway-ish through level 2 on WaniKani, on season 3 on Textfugu, my Anki reviews are piling up, I haven’t actually done anything new on textfugu for maybe 2 or 3 weeks, how do you manage to keep up?
    I work full time, I spend a fair amount of time at the gym and the dojo, I thought I could do maybe 30 minutes to an hour 4 or 5 days a week and learn at a nice leisurely pace. I’m in no rush to do this, it comes when it comes, but if I miss a day or two there seem to be so many reviews that I feel like I’ve hit a wall. How do you keep up? Am I missing something? :-/



    I keep up by not actually doing any of the Anki stuff. Possibly not the best practice, though. =)

    It is worth noting, though, that if you’re not actually retaining any of the stuff you’ve learnt so far, then moving on to new things is a little bit pointless. That’s why review is important.


    I run the Anki reviews daily so they don’t pile up. I’ve missed one day in the past 15 or so months. I also don’t move forward until I’m comfortable with the latest set of vocabulary and sentences. Which can take me several weeks (I’m currently learning on the い adjectives (season 4), albeit very slowly).
