Yup. I did it! On the very last day of sign ups. I decided to go ahead and bite the bullet. I signed up for N1. Also signed up N3 for my sister at the same time. Now all I need to do is… Study for N2, and then N1.
I’ll definitely have to restart my Arashi TV shows watching… NewsZeros in particular. Probably should try reading the Japanese news too, since reading and understanding news articles is part of the N1 requirement. I’ll definitely post more on this site regarding new vocabulary and so on in the days to come as I prepare myself for the test. Hmmm… Short summaries of news articles perhaps? With my favourite vocabulary list at the end? Yeah I could definitely do that.
Now that work has eased off a little, I’d definitely try to post more often here! Certainly back to my ‘at-least-once-a-week’ schedule. I do still remember about the translation of the short passage that I need to do too. I’ll probably try and do more writing in Japanese as well. The JLPT doesn’t test writing skills, but… What’s the point of learning a language if you can’t write at all? I’m by no means a good writer, which is all the more reason for me to practise and to try. Do let me know if you spot any mistakes! I’m here to learn as well.
That’s all for now folks, I’ll see you soon!
