One week ago, I attended the very first and basic N5 JLPT. For me, it was mainly a key milestone when studying: I always had to look forward and prepare for.this exam.
Wether I pass or not is not what’s important for me, I now know what skills I was supposed to possess and how the exam was set up.
To be short, I don’t really think I’ll pass. Some grammar points I didn’t possess, I made some really stupid mistakes and so on. But I didn’t do so bad. Given the feedback of the other attendees, some of them were first year high school student majoring in Japanese, some of them were learning on their own but for more than one and a half year. They weren’t this confident about the outcome…
With a 3-month-long study and having a rather good view of what I missed, I am quite satisfied.
As for the next steps, I set my mind into working more, about 90 minutes a days which is way more than what I was doing up to this point. I finally found a way to balance work and personal time and I will do my best.
And in a year, I will attend JLPT N3. And thus time, I’ll prepare to pass.
