2 In Japanese learning journey (:/ N2 Journey

JLPT N2 experience

1. I’ll very likely fail it, or in the best scenario, scrap a mediocre pass. 

2. The listening was really tough. 

3. I was not prepared at all.

Woke up with a bad cold that had me sniffing all the way until now. It’s so me, to fall sick at the worst moments. I had a cold on the day of a speech competition and TOPIK too. I really don’t think it has anything to do with nerves, given how I wasn’t planning to go to the exam until 2 hours before. Oops.

I sat through the exam feeling really sleepy. It wasn’t so bad during the reading part, but for listening, I was alternating between ? and ? because I barely understood anything. 

Yeah. So I got the wake-up call I wanted and I deserve to fail for not putting in the effort. 

Honestly, part of me regrets going for the exam since I know I’m not going to do well. But then, it’s always the experience that counts. 

I’m hoping to get a good rest tonight to prepare for the work week ahead ?.

    It was the same for me. I didn’t think that the listning test could be so difficult! Too many exercises in a row. I wasn’t prepared at all. We’ll see?

    I went back farrrrrrrrrrr to see when your japanese learning journey started. it seems like it was all the way back in 2010! Don’t feel down about it. it’s a test and in the overall scheme of things all that matters is tha tyou do what you enjoy doing in japanese. Lately I’ve been following steve kaufman and his language learning philosophy which is that one needs to read and listen a lot so I think it’s a matter of time until I feel super comfortable in japanese and korean. currently I consume korean the least and so i don’t have unrealistic expectations as to why korean isn’t as good as my japaneses in comprehension etc.
