the first new JLPT on Sunday, July 4th 2010  7月4日に新しいJLPTが行われます



The first new JLPT will be held on this Sunday.
Its passing score will be announced in September.

It must be hard especially for you from Uruguay, Ghana, Argentina, Germany, Netherlands, Chile, Paraguay and Spain as there are the World Cup games on Friday and Saturday.

For one who takes N1 or N2, Vocabulary/Grammar/Reading are in the same part and have 110min (N1) and 105min (N2).
All of you have strong and weak points, also the scores for reading and grammar is not the same, there is no common “the best way” for everyone.
Start from what you are good at.
It is going to be a fight against time.
It must be very hard to take the test not to lose your concentration for about 2 hours.
If possible, go to bed early (not to watch the succor games ^^) the day before, eat breakfast a lot, also eat power bar, banana or chocolate during the break for brain energy charge.
Because another one hour for listening comprehension is waiting for you.
Gambatte kudasai!
