I took the JLPT N1 on Sunday 1st. This is what I took with me on that day:
When it comes to the reading and listening sections of the JLPT, concentration is key. It’s not enough to be able to understand difficult texts and audio, you have to be able to do it for more than one hour long. Of course, you want to constantly improve your Japanese level, but don’t forget to improve your concentration too!
This is a review of the two series Nihongo So-matome and Shin Kanzen Master for the JLPT N2. I compare both series book by book to help you decide which series is best for you!
This is a long post about me taking and passing the JLPT N1 for the first time. I will talk about: my scores, section by section;what I did during my six-month preparation for N1, what was useful and what was useless;why I am going to sit the test once more in December and how I am..
Since January 2019, I am studying to pass the JLPT N1. My goal is to pass the test in December, but I also took the test of July to gain some practice. It was helpful, but it also gave me a sense of achievement, and it is hard to get back to the JLPT preparation now! After..
I have taken the JLPT N1 on July 7th (2019) for the first time, and I was not very surprised by my performance... I think that I might pass, but I also feel that I need the remaining months until December to increase my vocabulary and progress in listening. Report on the July test Vocabulary/Grammar..

Last week, I got the results of the second session of the JLPT (December 2017), and I was happy and relieved to see that I passed with 156 points! I thought that I would pass because, after the test, I felt that my performance was similar to what I did in July 2017, when I took..
Yesterday was finally the second JLPT test of the year. As I prepared a lot for it, I cannot but give my impressions on the test. Disappointed 😫 To be honest, I went to the test with a decent amount of self-confidence. I was particularly afraid of the grammar part so I worked a lot..
The Korean publisher Darakwon has an interesting series to practice the listening part of the JLPT. It is called 新일본어 능력시험 청해 콕콕 찍어주마. It exists for every level, but N4 and N5 are grouped in the same series. I only have the N2 book for listening, which is called: 新일본어 능력시험 청해 콕콕 찍어주마 -N2..
