    They do, if you're in the US. It seems both wrong and right that it's harder to apply for the JLPT in Japan than it is in a foreign country.

    I got 1-kyu in December and was so happy that I wouldn't be taking any standardized tests this year...until I found out there's a proficiency test for the Monbusho. Time to start relearning all the Japanese I've forgotten in the past five months...

    If anyone taking 1-kyu wants my ~2000 card Anki deck that may or may not be riddled with mistakes and may or may not be of help to you (i.e. your weak points may not be my weak points), send me a PM.
    Oh, no! My cola!

    I'm going for 1-kyu, and I should breeze through it, but I need to study the uncommon bullshit that 1-kyu is notorious for. I haven't studied for anything in like 2 years though.

    2 kyuu....agh...I think I would have passed it since I got a 51% last time and have been dating a Japanese guy and learning a bunch of kanji since then.

    well I'll sail through it in December?? I guess?? augh.

    Hang in there, katsudon. At least it's 2x a year...

    I have about 500 vocabulary words entered into my flashcard program, and many more to go. Feeling good about it. ^_^ v

    Hey, I took 2kyuu in December in London, failed by about 5% (I blame it on the fact that my bfnd tried to break up with me the day before but that's another story ;-p)

    I heard that the tests changed? Is 2kyuu more or less difficult now? And when's the next time to take it?

    Ta.

    If you want a 'fun' way to study for it, smart.fm (it's a website, despite not having a .com/.co.jp etc) might be of use. :-)

    barely passed 2kyu not this past december but the year before that. taking 1kyu in july but there's no way i can pass it. i'm studying about 1~2 hours everyday in my downtime at work but there is just too much material.

    right now i'm trying to beef up my vocabulary. reading will murder me but hopefully listening will make up for it.

    When are we supposed to get the reply forms back in the mail? Lost the little pamphlet and just want to make sure I didnt screw something up and just wont be receiving a reply.

    Anyhow barring any problems I'm taking 2 kyuu in July. Feeling confident so far now that I've finished studying the kanji. I just hope I actually remember all the grammar I should.

    I think the pamphlet said they will be sending out the reply forms in mid-June.

    How are you studying that vocab? Just the English translation, or are you making context-specific sentences, etc?

    I use Mnemosyne also for vocab, it rocks.
    I'm going to try my hand at the JLPT 2 in December.
