I’m back, 22 and Strong

Standard

お久しぶりです、皆さん。お待たせしました。ついに、戻ってきました。

It’s been a while Ladies and Gentlemen. I’m back. After a year of hiatus. And with me I brought, the trophy 🙂

This is the result of the JLPT N2 exam from December 2014.

Language Knowledge: 36/60 Reading: 42/60 Listening: 50/60 Total: 128 PASS

Language Knowledge: 36/60 Reading: 42/60 Listening: 50/60
Total: 128
PASS
I forgot where I put my official certificate, so I asked for the verification.

By getting 128 out of 180, I passed the N2 exam. I’m officially a trilingual now (Korean, English, Japanese)

Starting as a novice who couldn’t even say “Let’s go” in Japanese, I finally accomplished the milestone under my declared deadline of 2 years. Of course, N2 is very far from actually “mastering” the language. However, now I can watch and understand Japanese TV shows without subtitles, write and deliver speeches, and read best sellers without stress. This is the first official milestone I achieved and I’m very happy about it. But all this was possible due to many people around me and I would like to thank two awesome bloggers http://selftaughtjapanese.com/ and https://polyglotplotting.wordpress.com/ who kept me from feeling lonely during this journey of studying a third language.

So, I’m 22 now and it seems like I somewhat “mastered” the language. So is this blog over? Nope. Until I truly reach the mastery of the Japanese language, my journey will continue, and I hope to meet more of you along my journey. I’m willing to share the methods I used to learn Japanese and I’m open to all the questions related to learning Japanese.

Meanwhile, relax, and enjoying learning 😉

  1. Congrats on passing the test!

    ” However, now I can watch and understand Japanese TV shows without subtitles, write and deliver speeches, and read best sellers without stress. ”

    Wow I’ve been studying Japanese hardcore for over 15 years and cannot make these claims. The first one I am pretty good at, but if the show has alot of technical terms I struggle. As for novels, I’ve read over 50 but they still take a lot of effort to read and a great many dictionary lookups, depending on the level and subject matter.

    If you achieved all this in 2 years you have amazing linguistic skills (:
