When would this be in effect? Seeing as I just got a level 4 certificate, this means I’ll have to take the N4 test, right?

Yes, your level 4 would become a N5, so you would then have to take the N4 test (which is equivalent to the old level 3).
But this won’t go into effect until July 2010.

I’m glad to see a lot of these changes. I just read the progress report, though, and it seems they will no longer be releasing previous years’ results. I also hope they can start grading tests more quickly…

I’m glad they are making this change. I’ll be able to benefit after doing Level 3 this year, probably won’t attempt Level 2 next year since it’s just too much.

i was completely forgotten that i have sat for JLPT 3 kyuu last december (2 dec 2007), one day my father called me to tell that the result had been posted to my house and fortunately i passed the exam (i was shocked bcz i thought that i didnt give my full effort for the prep classes and the exam itself; as i was always feared of the listening paper)..though i didnt passed with flying colours i still managed to score more than 300 marks. but this year i may be able to take JLPT 2 kyuu exam as i want to struggle for my university thesis. here’s my results:-
- JLPT 4 (2006) = 313/400
- JLPT 3 (2007) = 309/400
for both papers, i was slacked at listening, i didnt have any problem with my kanji (you have to learn hundreds of them but only 20 kanji will be tested in the exam)..well, i’m from malaysia actually..hehe..
for those who will be taking JLPT, plz give your very best shot for the exam! ganbatte kudasai!

Hello Peter,

Ik zie dat je ook naar Japan gereisd hebt.
Zelf heb ik in de herfst van vorig jaar het land bezocht. Hiroshima, Kobe, Kyoto, Osaka, Tokyo en enkele toeristische dorpen in hun omgeving. (zie de html-link)
Deze herfst keer ik terug. Ik ga het noorden en het zuiden bezoeken van Japan. Plus Tokyo Game Show 07.
Ken jij toevallig nog enkele plaatsen die zeker de moeite waard zijn om te bezoeken?
Hoe verloopt de les Japans eigenlijk? Is de taal moeilijk.. Ik probeer het te leren maar het is niet gemakkelijk. Vooral de zinsbouw en de tonen van de woorden en laten we maar zwijgen over de tekens.
ik hoop met september ook Japanse les te volgen.

Ik zou het op prijs stellen als je me kan helpen voor die andere toffe plaatsen in Japan.
Dank bij voorbaat.
