Thoughts on the JLPT N4 and N5 Simulation Exams

Someone in our Upper Beginners group is also in what we call a hardcore Spanish-Japanese group. Before going on to Minna 2, everyone has to pass the . He asked if I could help.

We had a little less than three weeks of N5 prep before both Upper Beginners decided to take the simulation of the N5 exam. They passed and I’m really proud of them.

Latest Roundup: May 16 2021

皆さん、こんOOは。

Most of our study groups have continued to steadily progress while one has been cancelled for lack of attendance. The Upper Beginners study group finished Lesson 10 in Genki I, the Saturday study group has finished Lesson 22 which means they're now on the last chapter of the Genki series, and the Marugoto N3 group on Mondays and Thursdays finished off their second textbook in the past year when they completed Marugoto B1-1 last month. おめでとうございます!

明日の記念日

Hi, everyone!

Tomorrow marks our one year anniversary since we've been meeting online because of covid-19. In recognition of this event, I asked our members who join us in Discord three questions and told them that their responses would be anonymous.

  1. How do you study Japanese?
  2. What's your favorite way of studying?
  3. Are there any barriers to studying Japanese?

Here's the first set of responses.

「LangCorrect」というサイト

ディスコードのビデオチャットを使わずに、学習者の日本語が上達できるようお手伝いしていただけませんか。今が機会です。はもっとたくさんの日本人を募集しています。日本語の学習者はたくさんいますが、日本人の添削者の数が十分ではありません。それに、soraさんというクリエイターは日本人です。良かったら参加してください。よろしくお願い致します。

Latest Roundup: Feb 7 2021

It's February 2021 and we've been meeting online in Discord for almost 11 months. While it can get trying at times, the important thing for us to remember is to keep leveling up our Japanese fluency.

The Intermediate Marugoto group on Mondays and Thursdays is working on Topic 8 of 9 in Marugoto B1-1. The Sat group just finished Lesson 21 in Genki II while the Upper Beginners group just finished Lesson 9 in Genki I. We've also been competing with each other using the quiz functionality of the Kotoba Discord bot as another way to reinforce the Japanese we've been learning.
