JPLT - Self-Study

Postby kevinpah » Tue 08.22.2006 8:43 pm

I'm taking the JPLT Level 4 in this December.

I'm been studying on my own ( through books, listening to tapes, ).
I worked with a Japanese company for 4 years (few years ago ),
practise Japanese with my colleagues, and I also understand kana.

What should I write up at the column on which language school I'm from?.
Should I write "self-study - Kodansha books"?.

I'm a Chinese and Chinese characters is not really a problem to me, although many differences the way Japanese use it.

おねがいします。
白さん。

It doesn't matter. They just ask for statistical purposes.

Are you sure you don't want to go for 3 kyuu? Sounds like you have enough experience/knowledge to give it a shot. I would guess if kanji isn't a big issue for you, you should concentrate on grammar.

Very few native chinese take 4 and 3級, because the lack of Kanji is more of a hinderance than a help. I would suggest going for level 2, as your knowledge of kanji should help you in parsing the reading sections, and in picking out miswritten kanji (in the kanji section).

Thank you very much for the advises.

Luckily I will attend a preparation class arranged by the Japanese Language Society.

I found a relatively good site to prepare you for the JLPT and see at which level you might be at.

Look's good - I've added the link to the [wiki]JLPT[/wiki] page.

You might want to check the page [wiki]How to Link[/wiki].
