This week's Facebook topic is: Are you taking the JLPT exam in December and if so, what level?
The sign-up for the proficiency exam is coming up in 3 weeks, so now is your time to get stoked! Oh yeah! Picking the right level for the exam is key. If you aim too low or too high, you could lose a year because you either fail an exam that was too tough or take an exam that was way too easy for you. And sometimes you could just be taking an exam to get a sense of what is in store, rather than expecting to actually pass. So read up on these posts and see where people are at. If people are preparing for the same level, they could possibly study together. Remember, all of you can message other group members whenever you like via the Meetup.com page. I have included a link to JLPT exam site below.
See you on Facebook!
The JLPT is administered once a year in the United States, on the first Sunday in December. We currently do not offer the July test and have no plans to do so in the near future. If you are interested in taking the test in December, please check back in late July for more information regarding registration procedures.2012 JLPT
