I’ve decided to stop stuffing around in Japanese and have committed to sitting the JLPT test this year. It gives me butterflies, so should be a good thing, as I do best when under pressure. I haven’t decided yet whether to sit the N4 or N3 when the time comes in early December, as there’s only annual testing in my State.
Or, better still, leave hubby and kids behind and travel interstate to sit the N4 mid year?! 🎈Either way, I’ve got my work cut out. 😊
I don’t know if you’ll see this post because you haven’t been active in the past couple months, but I saw your unanswered question since someone just responded to this thread, so I’ll share my thoughts:
I think you should forget about the intermediate exams, save your time and money, and just keep studying until you’re ready for the N1 exam.
To me, success in all the other N5, N4, N3, and N2 tests would be lukewarm achievements. I would rather take the N1 when I feel ready and pass it, or fail it and retake it until I pass it and then bask in the glory that is Japanese N1 success.
The N1 is like a coronation/validation for English speaking language hobbyists. Not only is it the most widely recognized Japanese test for foreign language students, Japanese is also a non-Roman script language, and is included as one of the languages in FSI's "most difficult" category.
So, if you pass N1, you’ve validated yourself IMO as a top-notch language learner.
Great video! Looking forward to following this series in 2020.
Great, if you decide to record more videos using LingQ please feel free to make a new thread in this section! We'd love to hear it, Nick.
