9 In Japanese learning journey (:/ N3 Journey

JLPT N3 Passed!


One more milestone to add to my Japanese learning journey. And also a reminder that I should stop slacking and work even harder.

To be honest, with everything that is going on, I had forgotten all about the test and I didn’t even bother checking when the results will be out. Until the letter came yesterday. I didn’t think that I would fail, but it was still a pleasant surprise that I did pretty well! Especially at the reading section. HAHA.

(I may have gone a little crazy with the stickers on the phone app..)

I think I did work hard in some sense. Reading Japanese novels and keeping myself immersed. #selfstudyingispossible

hehe kikuta did help (private joke)


I am not proud to say that I have not been keeping up with my Japanese studies. Need to work harder and I think this is a good motivation!

hehe a good final post for the “N3 Journey” blog category. You can read about my 1st JLPT experience here!

Maybe soon it will be time to start a new “N2 Journey” blog category.

For those who have taken JLPT, hope you guys did well too!

happy weekends

    Congratulations! 😀 I’m getting ready to take this December 2014 and already started preparing. By the way, what novels did you read? I’ve been looking around for some to pick up, but I’m a little skeptical about everything because I don’t want to stop at every kanji like ._. since most novels don’t have furigana. At the rate I’m going, I’m thinking I just need to suck it up and pick up one book that’ll prove to be a challenge for a good while and another that I’ll be able to understand somewhat.

    i knew you’d pass. you should just skip to n1 lol.. that way it’ll be really suspensful to see if you pass or not since you don’t need a 90% to pass or anything like that. Like people have mentioned before there are some people who cannot speak japanese even though they passed n1 or forgot a lot after the test lol.

    Hello! I’m just starting out in learning Japanese, may I ask what kind of Japanese novels and where do you read them? Especially for beginners (well, I cleared minna no nihongo book 1 and had of book 20) but i don’t think I’m intermediate yet. Thanks!

      Hi Clarice! My first Japanese novel was a compilation of short romance stories (: my Friend gave me the book. But you can always get them at a bookstore or online. I’m not sure if there’s a Kinokuniya near your place or some other bookstores, you can Google! For beginners, novels might be tough, but you can always try! ^^ maybe even children stories or those graded readers will be good. I’m not sure what they call such books in Japanese, but I recall seeing an easier version of Toto-Chan with furigana used instead of just kanji. The book is available in English too, so might aid in your reading?
