JLPT results

I received my 日本語能力試験 (otherwise known as JLPT or Japanese Language Proficiency Test) results today after more than 2 months.

JLPT result sheet

No surprises, I passed. Actually I got a nice 87% but it was only level 3 which is not that hard. I probably could have made level 2 with a lot of work and dedication, but I didn’t feel like investing so much in that last year.

Here is the official description for level 3:

The examinee has mastered grammar to a limited level, knows around 300 kanji and 1,500 words, and has ability to take part in everyday conversation and to read and write simple sentences. This level is normally reached after studying Japanese for around 300 hours and after completion of an elementary course.

  1. Yo wookie,
    c’est will. Je cherche des infos sur le JLPT et je suis tombe sur ton site.
    (J’adore Internet pour ca). Heu… bon je vais vraiment chercher maintenant mais si tu pouvais m’ecrire a mon adresse perso axichoueurd et me dire ou m’adresser, avec qui quoi ou qu’est-ce, ca me fera surement gagner du temps.
    Je vais tenter le JLPT4 dans les prochains mois.
    Ton blog est nickel,
    bonne continuation et au plaisir.

  2. C’est simple, t’as qu’une seule session par an debut Decembre.
    Les inscriptions commencent le vers la fin de l’ete. Si t’es a l’etranger, tu peux t’inscrire sur internet. Si t’es au Japon, il faut aller acheter un formulaire d’inscription dans une librairie et l’envoyer en recommande par la poste avec le recu de paiement (via un ATM de la poste).

    English version:
    Simple, there’s only one session per year in early December.
    Signup starts in mid-summer. If you’re abroadm you can register and pay on the net. If you’re in Japan, you have to go buy a from in a bookshop and send it with proof of payment (you have to pay in a post office ATM).

  3. j’ai pas dis ca
    j’ai dis que si j’avais bosse comme un fou (contrairement a reposer sur mes acquis comme je fais en ce moment), j’aurai probablement pu l’avoir

    mais comme j’avais pas le courage de bosser, j’ai prefere passer le 3kyuu d’abord, on verra l’annee d’apres pour le 2kyuu
