Yamasa Institute

Asked 7 years ago

Since I'm filing out the paperwork and stuff now I figured I'd ask this while it's on my mind:

I just started the premium membership for this app because I homeschool and I'm counting it as an elective credit (due to certain cirumstances I have to take another year to complete Chemistry and I needed other classes to fill the gap, which I was already planning on learning Japanese anyways).

I'm filling out the paperwork to be attending the Yamasa Institute in Okazaki during the Spring, starting in April. While you can attend the Institute with very little background in the Japanese language, it does help to have at least a basic grasp on everyday grammer, vocabulary and customs. How well prepared will this app enable me to be before I head off? At the very least I hope to have a full understandig of the hiragan and katakana and several kanji before I head out.

I guess another way to ask it is: which JLTP exam does this program best prepare you for, from N5-N1?

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

You should be pretty compentent for the JLPT N5.  We continue to add new lessons and our goal is to push everyone towards passing the N1.  

Given that you will be going to the Institute in April, I would shoot for JLPT N5 level Japanese.  Use the lessons as well as the JLPT N5 study lists to help build your vocabulary quickly.

Here's the JLPT N5 study list (Kanji and Vocab!) : http://www.nihongomaster.com/lists/view/40/jlpt-n5-study-list

We also have study lists for all levels of the JLPT.

Since you are premium, I would also say create your own practice writing sheets so you can practice your writing skills.  The JLPT does not question you on your writing ability but you should have some capability before heading off to the Institute.

here's another resource that I use along-side Nihongo Master: http://chokochoko.wordpress.com/the-great-library/

Being home-schooled myself, I know how invaluable it is to your final education to have a wealth of information at your disposal. Good luck!
