Weekly Wednesday JLPT Battle Plan

Time to get your 日本語勉強 on!!
That's right kids, the big and daunting JLPT signup is looming over our heads, taunting us to dust off those textbooks and flex our Nihongo muscles.
Starting Aug 26th you can sign up for the Japanese Language proficiency test. More info here:
http://www.aatj.org/jlpt-us

The test is on December 1st.

Yes that IS the Sunday of the long weekend where we can stuff our faces full of turkey and stay up all night in front of Best Buy to buy our long awaited PS BOX 5 with new mind reading technology and super distraction display.
Or you can be one of the cool kids, cramming kanji into your brain as fervently as 1000 people fighting over the last Tickle Me Elmo that's 50% off.

To readily prepare against this epic battle of Nihongo skills, starting September 4th I will be spending EVERY Wednesday evening evaluating my battle plan against 2000 kanji at the Starbucks at on 8 mile in Northville.
I will be shooting for N1, which will be a kamikaze mission to say the least but I've already defeated N2 so there is no turning back for me.

Anyone of all levels are welcome to join, but bare in mind the secret turkey spies will be listening trying to lure us away from our studies and focus on sweet sweet holiday deals instead. So we must speak ONLY in Japanese for at least one hour so no one will understand our secret battle plan to defeat this test and avoid the lure of amazing deals and delicious turkey.
... You can still have the turkey, but you better be carving kanji into it while you are carving your slice!

Of course I really hope we keep up with the Japanese Conversation meetups that we have been doing as well! I hope the Wednesday study sessions help us stay focused on our goal of passing the test!

So if you just come for one week or if you join me for every week, please let me know if you are interested. If interest is big enough I will post this every week once we start.
If interest isn't that big then I won't post but I will be there alone with my battle textbooks of choice every Wednesday.

Remember kids, this isn't a study session. THIS.... IS... NIHONGO!!!!

To victory!!

    If people want to join either, just let me know. I would love to see everyone there at some point. But even alone, I will be there. :

    Im living in Rochester, Northville is kind of far away from my place. Is there any possibility that we can meet somewhere closer? I wanna prepare for N3 this year, anyway, cant make tonight, probably see you guys next time!! thank you!!!! ^^

      I tried to keep Northville as more the center location for everyone. If people on the East side are more active we can think about moving somewhere closer to that end. :)

      That location is little more than "down the street" from me, so I like it! Wednesday evenings work better than Sundays for me too.

    I would love to join you, but I have a group that I meet with on Wednesday evenings already. Maybe I could join sometimes? I signed up for JLPT N2, but might be too hard for me, although somehow I passed N3. Some sort of miracle occurred. If you do Sundays, then I'm in.

    Sorry, Wednesday is not a good time for me.
    水曜日はやはり都合が悪いのです。

    • Heidi

      If Sunday is good please join the one I posted for Sundays. :)

      September 3, 2013

  • Heidi

    Ok Nihongo Soldiers! It looks like everyone is up for Sunday and no one can make Wednesday. SO! I have made a new meetup, I didn't realize I can't change the location and time, so that's empty. If you can go on Sunday, please join!! I will still be going on this Wednesday because I need to study!! Anyone is always welcome.
