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.
OK, I decided to sign up for the N5 given this December 6, 2015. I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area, and they only give the one December test in the United States, so I might as well go for it as wait a whole 'nother year+. What's the worst, I fail and lose $60, big deal.
I don't need the cert for a job just now, but in the future that might be a possibility. I already have business ties in Japan.
Anywhoo, is anyone else taking JLPT this December?
Thank you, Yuki-san (or do you prefer Yuki-Sensei?) I actually did try those already. I forget my exact score, I think I got most of them. I also did the complete Japan Foundation's N5 booklet test this weekend (posted my scores in another thread). Feeling relatively confident, and we still have more than a couple months, it's not even October yet. I'm wondering how many people will show up for the San Francisco exam (at any level)?
I'm actually going through your excellent JLPT Last Minute Prep Courses right now (even though it's not last minute). I'm finding these extremely helpful- great work, as usual, JPod!
