Planning for the JLPT? Learn about the new JLPT test levels N1, N2, N3, N4, and N5. The JLPT is a goal for many students of the Japanese language - whether for university entrance, a job in Japan, or just personal motivation.
I've got JLPT N4 coming up in the summer and I was just wondering how much more difficult it will be than the N5. I've heard the jump from N4 to N3 is pretty massive, but I'm not sure what to expect from the N4.
It's quite a bit more difficult than N5. I don't really know what more to say. I took N4 6 months after N5 and passed.
It might sound obvious, but make you sure know the vocabulary and te grammar. The kanji is useful too, but I think you will get more marks if you know the vocab and the grammar than if you know the kanji.
Thanks for the advice, I know the Kanji and most of the vocab now, I'm mainly working on my reading speed, the thing I struggled the most with on N5 was running out of time, at least I know what to expect this time.
