I've been studying Japanese over a year now and it's time for some sort of qualification. The JLPT test is the Japanese language proficiency test and I signed up for the N3 Japanese test today!
The test is this July in London. I haven't finished the N3 book, so taking the class in July is a little rush for me. But if I take N4 (the easier level) this summer, it's not challenging enough for me to keep studying at a good pace. So I took the chance and signed up for the N3 test. If I couldn't pass it this July, I can still take another one in December in the US.
