6 In Japanese learning journey (:/ N2 Journey

68 dollars commitment

So.. After making many empty promises that I’ll sign up for JLPT N2 since 2015, I have not taken the test yet ?. The closest I did was sign up (and paid) for the Dec 2015 test, only to be a no-show since I was sick. 

Hopefully I’ll get to complete it this round. As of now, I haven’t register for it yet, hopefully I’ll do it tonight.

Reg is open from 15 Aug to 9 Sept for SG and test date is on 4 Dec 2016.

Pretty sure I’ll fail the test, since I’m nowhere near my most prepared state and even then, I was not very good with all the grammar and vocab. :/ it has been months since I last read intensively in Japanese and also months since I last studied properly :x. 

I also dont foresee having much time to do so in the coming months.

But with the 68 dollars commitment, hopefully that will be a push for me to STUDY. 

Anyone else contemplating taking JLPT too? ^^

    I THINK you’ll pass because it’s a multiple choice test and you know Mandarin, Korean, and English. You shoulda spent that money on Japanese bookssssssssssss for reading

    I wish you the best of luck! I’m also taking the N2 exam this December in Athens. I haven’t registered yet but I will be able to do so from 9/5 to 9/16. The examination fees are €55 over here the same as last year. It would be interesting to know how much it costs around the globe.

    Hi Shanna! I plan on studying for JLPT N2, with a goal of achieving it by Dec 2017. An update about me, I studied Mandarin Chinese for about 4 years on and off and have a strong base in Korean. If you had to guess, how many hours of committed study do you think that would take to pass the JLPT N2? Also, would you say that being able to achieve this level would enable one to say, read 70% of a Japanese newspaper? I read from another American blogger with a very similar background to mine who achieved JLPT N2 in 14 months of study, but haven’t heard back from her yet as to how much time she invested each week. Curious on your thoughts. Thanks!

    I was supposed to go for N3 about 2 years ago when I first left college. I still havent and lost the passion and ambition I had to challenge myself and learn more. This made me remember it’s not too late and it’s not impossible. 🙂 Good luck on the exam! Can’t wait to hear about it!
