    Default JLPT lazy study skills

    Who else hasn't even started studying for the JLPT yet?

    It's about 3 weeks~ish to go and I don't think I'll even find the time to start to be honest. Looks like I'll be rolling up to the test centre and hoping for the best like last year.

    Profit? I'd like to think you could get paid for taking the test but I'm certainly out of pocket, not even including travel expenses either.

    I suck at listening, take that how you will

    Thanks, I'll bear it in mind.

    Actually, I really hope there is an underwear mining business.

    I am so stressed for the test right now. And I had to ask a mate if I could stay with them cause I live just too far away from the exam venue
    I really should study harder

    My brain is going to explode. I can't fit any more kanji in my brain. Can't wait to get home and test myself on FB again to see if my speed recognition has improved

    That facebook app is the cahoonies. According to that, I now know all the kanji I need to know, but my vocab is severely lacking. :P

    It is really awesome, and yesterday it gave me the good news that I know enough vocab to pass (man I hope that it is telling me the truth)
    I can't think what it is called, but somebody studying Japanese is bound to have it. Otherwise you will have to look for it manually under Applications. If you have problems, PM me and I will find out for you at lunchtime

    Go to "Browse applications" and search for "kanji box".

    I think it's little avatar thingy is a black square with blue 道 kanji written on it, but it's really tiny, so I can't see it properly.

    narn - the vocab is totally boring. I usually do the vocab for 5 minutes, get bored, and go back to the kanji for another half hour.

    The problem with the kanji quiz is that after wave 5 or so it starts asking 2kyu kanji, none of which I know. So I've only been able to finish that quiz once.

    If you go according to time, then you had ten seconds to go and you would have finished the vocab section

    That makes sense.

    My biggest issue is that it focuses on the English meaning which is not what we need for the test. Wish there were more "games" like this out there

    I have finished & passed the vocab test. I mean drilling the vocab so that that little green bar mooooves it's arse up the line. :P I've pretty much got all my kanji on the bright green, but I've still got about 500 vocab words in the grey cuz it hasn't even asked them yet. :P
