Translated, "Japanese Language Proficiency Test Level 1", a well known test among those who wish to further their studies to Japan, for a non-Japanese nationale only, consists of 4 different test levels, with Level 4 being the lowest (beginner) and Level 1 for the ..err..native speaker wanna-be?
As for the Level 1 (as quoted from the test booklet) :
Quote:
The examinee has mastered grammar to a high level, knows around 2,000 Kanji and 10,000 words, has an integrated command of the language sufficient for life in Japanese society, providing a useful base for study at a Japanese university. This level is normally reached after studying Japanese for around 900 hours.

My last visit to Penang (for Japanese visa application) had brought me back to Penang once again, but this time, for a payback ! I went to Japan 3 years ago with my Level 2 certificate. Most national universities in Japan require Level 1 qualification for entrance while most private universities prefer to see how much you got in your pocket instead However, since university entrance in Japan requires science & math exams too, this Japanese Language requirement can somehow be bent if you could pass those papers (which, ironically, of course requires you to have a good command of Japanese to understand the questions )....or if you are a foreign government sponsored student. Kalu ada kawan yg biasiswa krjaan yang sdang belajar kat Jepun, try laa tanya, derang lulus Level berapa ?

So, I went to Penang, took the test at a private college (Disted College?) used by the Japanese Society as for this year test site, along with this good old Penangite friend, a proud owner of a rare Honda Accord SiR-T , Mr. Aris Nizam (like me, he's also a Japanese grad.). There were three different set of papers/tests, which required about 4 hours to complete. So I did my best and they promised me the result as late as March next year..Dah berkarat dah kepala, tapi konfiden bley lulus tetap ada.. Insya Allah... Pastuh, tumpang makan kenduri kat umah jiran si Aris, pastuh makan plak angin kat Penang nih, kenyang btol laa.. pi Batu Feringghi, pi beli Jeruk Balik Pulau, pi Empangan Teluk Bahang, round2 Georgetown, usha-usha anak mammi etc.. Pendek kata, macham macham adaaaa..... * ( *baca ikut sebutan pakcik Astro ).
Aper2 pun, thanks so much to Aris sebab kasi luangkan masa dia dan mileage keter "baru & mahal" dia tapi satu jer kesilapan besar yang Mr. Aris lakukan yang aku kesali ==> dia tak kasi aku try bawak keter dia ..iskk

Akhir kata, kerja sambil belajar memang best, sebab kasi exercise otak supaya tak berkarat.. emm.. terfikir nak ambik Mandarin writting & conversation classes gak, tapi kat Kota Bharu nih kat ner? Ader aper2 cadangan?
