N4 Test Results

I got a B in every section of the test.  However, I didn’t pass.  I had a gut feeling that it would be close and it could go either way.

I was taking a class during the week of the test and didn’t study hard every day.  Reflecting back there were so many things I didn’t do for this test that I did on the last one, which I passed.

  • I didn’t spend 3-4 hours a day cramming the month of the test.
  • I didn’t study my Anki decks as  much as I should have.
  • I didn’t write things down in my notebook. I typed notes out and didn’t go back and review it all.

As I may have mentioned before, I am still happy with what I learned throughout the year leading up to the test. There’s always next year.

N4 Test Results

20 days

It’s been 20 days since I took the JLPT N4 test and stopped studying EVERY day.  It’s great to teak a break but now I’m back.  I have studied since but probaby only 1-2 hours a week for the past 3 weeks or so.  I was almost at level 11 wanikani, at 70% but then stopped now I have over 500 reviews. wah.

Life happens.  I didn’t spend all day studying as much as I’d like.  Which I think is a good thing.  It’s easy for me to lock myself indoors all day and be in front of a computer or a book.

Touched on causative forms today, and some grammar review.  Reviewed some notes and one lesson.  I’m practicing some kanji now and I think this will be a routine now at night since it’s kinda soothing and a good way for me to unwind.

Countdown to 12/2

I wanted to get out a blog post yesterday declaring I reached WaniKani level 10.  In addition, I wanted to blog every day in the month of November since I’ve started my one month countdown to December 2nd.  However, I didn’t get to WaniKani level 10 until today.  December 2nd is the day I tackle the JLPT N4 test.  At the moment, my confidence is low. I need to cram big time.
So many things have happened this year that has kept me really busy.
  • I’ve gone to Japan twice.  Once in April and another time in July.
  • I sold my house and moved.
  • I’m about to purchase another place.  Thankfully, I’m not moving right away.
  • I’m taken on a lot more responsibility at work.
So here we go.  I’m watching a countdown episode on youtube and drinking a redbull before I start tonight’s cram session.  It’s Friday night.  This is what every night will be like until December 2nd.
Countdown to 12/2

Reviews and reviews

I sat down one or twice over the weekend and on Monday to go through my wanikani reviews.  I got down to 150 yesterday and am now back to 201 that need to be completed.  Up to my waist in reviews lol.

I took out a couple of my N4 books yesterday to start going through them.

Also, more reviews of my notes I’ve been taking over the past year!!

It’s here. N4 exam cram time!
