The JLPT or Japanese-Language Proficiency Test was yesterday. There are five levels: N1, N2, N3, N4 and N5. The easiest is N5 and the most difficult is N1. All five tests cover vocabulary, grammar, reading and listening.

    proficiency – great skill, ability, and experience

A friend of mine took the N3 yesterday. He said listening and vocabulary weren’t as difficult as he expected, but the 70 minutes for grammar and reading wasn’t enough time for him.

Taking and passing JLPT has never been my goal, but talking to my friend about the test made me curious. I tried sample questions on the internet, and I found out that the questions in the N5 aren’t so difficult. I don’t know if I’ll be able to pass it though.
