I passed the Japanese test! by Michael J Downey on MyspaceShare your blog

I passed the Japanese test!

Current mood:blissful

Well, it's no big deal, but to me, it's huge. See, I've been studying Japanese for about 3 years now, and have had some of the greatest friends, language exchange partners, and a tutor help me along the way. Anyhow, the Japan Foundation, based in LA holds this world-wide test on the first weekend of December. It's like 3 hours long, all in Japanese, and BRUTAL! They say that like 49% of the people taking the test pass, and with everything else I've got going lately, it's been tough to seriously study every day.

Anyhow, I PASSED!!!! It's just Level 4 (the lowest level out of 4), but it's the real deal, and I'll shoot for Level 2 or 3 this December. YAH!

    • Hisako congratulations:)
      you know what,
      when I read your Japanese on my blog,
      I believed you were a Japanese who has an English name.
      It took a little while to notice you're not.
      a great work:D
