JLPT N3: Passed!


Yeah boyeee! Looks like all that studying paid off!

That reading section though, god damn.

Looks like I don’t know anything about Sakura trees or people who eat fish.

I’m going to take the level N2 test this December after brushing up a bit more on N3!

Wish me luck!

    1. Uwahhh please don’t put that much faith in me, I knew the Reading section was tough, if I missed one more question it coulda cost me the test!


    1. Thank you!

      The time limit is probably the hardest part, especially for the reading segment – there’s a lot to get through unless you can read/get the jist of the story quickly.

  1. 67% is an A? And the grades don’t go below a C.

    Well, maybe they recognise that learning a new language is really hard and don’t want to run people off while they’re still learning. Beware those finals, tho.

    1. Thanks!

      Yes and No. Yes I no longer have to study the same boring N3 books, but I really don’t want to do the level above, it’s even harder and harsher on time limits. Gotta literally start now until December to even have a chance.

      1. I wouldn’t even pass level 5 at the moment (it was 5-4-3-2-1 order, right?). xD~~~
        It’s cool to know at least one European, who’s passed level 3. 😀
        So it’s giving me the hopes that I’ll possibly learn this language somewhen (in the next centuries T-T). 8D

        1. Good luck if you try! 5 isn’t that hard, the time limits and scoring are really generous! I’m sure you can do it!

          N3 was made to bridge the gap between the previous set of 3 and 2 (with 4 being the lowest) 2 years ago. Back then, the jump from 3 to 2 was insane!

          1. Phahaaa, nah, I’m still learning the basics. xD
            And since I’m doing it for fun, there’s just to much other things that have higher priority. ^^
            Though it would be neat to be able to use it like I use English nowadays. Writing, reading, speaking and sometimes even thinking English is reeeealy nice. 😀
            Btw: I’m also trying to learn Russian at the same time. xD~~~

      1. I will now share with you a selection of the few Japanese words I know:

        Nekoi, Ucchi, sushi, Shin Seiki Evangerion, Nikkei, wasabi, ginjō sake, dōmo arigatō, onryō, daikaijū, konichiwa, Tetsuo, KANEDAAAAAAAA.
