I’ve been very busy last week and this week to clear my schedule as much as possible. Am I going on vacation? I wish…

Instead, I will take the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) next Sunday. I’ll only attempt the most basic level, the N5; after all these years in the country, this shouldn’t be too much of a challenge. Still, I’ll need to prepare for the test, so I’ll do a lot of studying for the rest of the week.

Compared to the last time I took the test (and failed miserably), there is now much more study material available online. I have found plenty of YouTube videos for the listening comprehension part, and even the grammar and reading comprehension can be found online. I guess I’ll do a lot of practice tests in the next few days… Wish me luck!
