I’ll be taking the N4 soon, though I should have signed up for the N3! It’s the second lowest level of Japanese proficiency and I think I should be able to pass rather easily. I should have signed up for the N3, which is much harder, because then I would have felt more pressure to study!
I’ll have to wait until December to be able to take the next test since they only allow test taking twice a year 🙁 But that means I have some time to study hard!
I find that my reading is slow and my listening is pretty bad. I’ve improved for sure, but I’m a long way from any sort of fluency. I really need to study more!
