Grammar (JLPT level 4)

Post by Milmi » Tue 10.11.2005 6:21 pm

Does anyone know where I can find the grammar points that I need to know in JLPT level 4?

I've tried to search for the information but the best I can find is this . They do mention the grammar points but they use the book "Japanese for busy people", eg. "Japanese for busy people, grammar points 1, 2, 3, 4 etc."

So where can I find the points so that they're not just some references to book or something? I mean like this: Learn the verb -masu and -te form, i-adjective present and past tense and so on.

If you look at the "Free Material" section on the MLC site, you'll see a pack to download--while it doesn't specifically SAY in the pack "know the -masu form; know the -te form; etc"... it DOES give the sentences used in JLPT exams since 1992... and I'm betting that will give you a very good idea of what you need to know.
