@kai Grammar part done. There was a lot of reading to do, and I ran out of time at about 2/3 of the test 😢
The cover page said we had 70 minutes, but since we started 10 minutes late and finished exactly on time, we got only 60 minutes. But my Japanese is not yet good enough to articulate a complaint 😭
@codewiz lol well I guess you're only as good as you are. 😅
@kai We're done...
@codewiz are you the whitest guy in the room? lol
@codewiz stiff competition
@kai Well... but the best paid jobs in Japan (as with most of the world) are those requiring English.
You must be fluent in formal Japanese to work at a konbini, but they want mostly English at international clinics, schools, multinationals, research centers...
@codewiz it does seem strange that they're not bigger champions of their own language
@codewiz 👍 well done
@codewiz I will never understand how they can use these machine readable papers, and then need many weeks to announce the results.
@globalc I know, they're so inefficient! 😂
Apparently scoring JLPT became a research problem for academics. Some of the questions in the test are "canaries" to calibrate scores across tests, and the score of each question depends on how many people guessed it right.
