2014 N3

Postby jamchiell6368 » January 17th, 2014 8:36 pm

Hi everyone,

In December 2002 (yes that long ago), I took the old level 3 test and passed. I lived in Japan for some time after that but didn't progress as I was studying TESOL at Temple University, Japan and I spent all the hours I had working and studying. Ironically, now that I am living outside Japan, I have time and thanks to Japanesepod101, the opportunity to study.

I will take the N3 in Edinburgh this year (2014). I would be grateful to hear of anyone who wants to be a cyber-study buddy with me and share some tips and ideas. I would also be glad if anyone could recommend any readings or literature to help me.

At the moment, I am reviewing the N4 course as I am a bit rusty. Then from next month, I will really go for the N3 test. That will give me five months to study. My wife is Japanese, but I don't want to stress her with questions on grammar etc. I wonder if it is a good idea to upgrade so to premium plus and get a tutor who can help me.

Thanks,

Papacass

Hello,

I'd be happy to join in.
I'm a college student, I'm planning on taking JLPT (still hesitating between the 2 levels).
What support are you using to review N4?

Hi there, I'm also taking N3 (in London this July). The interesting bit is I've only been studying Japanese since January. Know about 2k vocab and all the jouyou kanji. It's just a vocab and grammar grind for me at this stage. Going to be an experience for sure!

For reading resources, NHK Easy every day is a good start. Just spend as much time online as you can reading as many different things as you can, really. Tutor wouldn't be a bad idea! Also sign up for lang-8 and start practicing writing ASAP :)

I'm using a combination of Evernote, Anki, and Memrise to keep hold of everything.

Let's do our best!

Vocab with Examples

Postby dnjpsil_497579 » August 4th, 2014 5:45 pm

Dear JLPT Teachers,

It would be good to have examples for each Vocabulary words for JLPT N3 level. There are many words which can be understood if few examples of each is given.

For example - the following are N3 level vocab words - Akira, Akiraka, Akuma etc.. Examples will help us to understand its usage better. Kindly help.

Not only for N3, this can be extended for each level.

Regards,
Narayanan.

Narayanan-san kon'nichiwa,

Thanks for your feedback! I'll bring it back to my team.
For now, please have a look at vocabulary search, or key vocabulary list on each Audio Lesson.
Most of the vocabulary have their sample sentences in Japanese and English (translation).

Thanks again!
