RE: questions about JLPT in general.........especially level

In all honesty what I getting out of this is not taking the test itself. The preparation that will go into this prior to taking the test is what will benefit me the most. I will be quasi-immersed incessantly, and I'll be practicing and studying many aspects of the Japanese language. Writing with Jap...

RE: questions about JLPT in general.........especially level

You just made a bunch of assumptions about my study habits and my motives for taking this test. You basically implied through your whole post that the only reason I'm taking this test is to receive the reward of formal certification of passing a test just for it to look good on my track record when ...

would you recommend this book for studying for JLPT lvl 4?

The question I asked is basically implied in the title. I'm studying to take JLPT level 4 as a way to help me master Japanese. I am teaching myself Japanese, so JLPT is a way for me to become more proficient in Japanese via quasi-immersion by studying and practicing. I am wondering if this is a good...

RE: questions about JLPT in general.........especially level

Not to be rude, but aside from grammar building your vocabulary is probably the biggest part to efficiently mastering a language.

RE: where can I find manga in hiragana?

Unfortunately I don't have the luxury of reading and writing in Japanese the way
it's supposed to be written. Due to the fact that I'm still learning kanji, I'm dependent

Somebody made a very good suggestion (and they went to visit Japan for a study program, plus they can make coherent sentences). It was to read manga in hiragana. I would like to know if it's possible to find websites that sell manga in Japanese. Preferably I would like manga that's in hiragana (or i...
