How long do you think it takes to read all of Nihongo Master's lessons, finish all quizzes, and finish all drills at least once?

I'm not really asking this in terms of fluency here, but rather in the interest of time. How long would it take to go through (stated in question) at least once?

I understand that it's probably more important to focus on whether or not I understand the material.

Realistically, this is more of a question asked out of curiosity.

When I say all lessons, I mean all that have been released up to the latest complete section (Intermediate).

By drills, I mean the ones that can be unlocked after reading the lessons and not the drills you can make one your own (I think) from the dictionary.

This isn't really important, so it doesn't really matter that much to me if I get an answer on this question... Though I suppose it may be important to people who would like to complete most of these lessons within a specified period of time.

Good afternoon!

You are right! It is really important to be able to understand the materials! And there are a lot of materials being covered! So it is going to be a fun journey for sure!

And as for your curiosity, it is really difficult for me to answer because I am Japanese, and everyone has their own pace and devoted time spent on learning Japanese, but maybe someone else in the community can give you general ideas?

sorry for the vague answer, but hope it helps!

Cheers

Yeah, I understand that everyone has their own pace. I'm not looking for exact answers, just opinions.

I've found that I typically take roughly half an hour per lesson and the associated set of drills once. After that they come back of course, but I don't think that's what you're asking for.

I personally also tend to go through periods of activity and non-activity due to university. During the summer vacation (the only vacation we get together with winter) I usually get roughly three lessons done per day. I'm curious to see what others achieve, because I usually see people with much higher daily scores on the ranking list. :)

I find myself in a relatively similar situation, being in high school. You may have seen me on the weekly or daily ranking... because I haven't been on for so long that I did about 800 or so drills one day! After the school year ended, I literally regretted having done next to nothing on Nihongomaster (with a yearly subscription brought at a discounted price). That's why I want to (this summer) become less of a procrastinator and accomplish as many lessons as possible, especially since I want to have accomplished having a better life style before my twelfth grade.... Well anyways, the point is that I wanted to get a rough idea of the time. However, I suppose it's better to just time my own pace instead by drawing a correlation between the length of the page or the number of words and the time. Also, I'm going to count the number of lessons left to help in my estimations and goal setting. Sorry, I wrote too much.

Don't be sorry. I'm a university student so I know exactly how you feel -- barely doing anything more than a lesson a week during the year and then suddenly wanting to finish the entire "Intermediate" section during the summer. The down side -- as the other community question discusses -- is that you'll be utterly swamped by drills if you do upwards of one lesson a day. PS: I also counted the lessons I've left for the summer. ;)
