JLPT Questions in English?

Postby JoelleAlice » Sun Oct 24, 2010 4:20 am

I'm having trouble understanding the Questions for the JLPT 5 practice papers, and was wondering if anyone had the translations,
I am currently studying to take the JLPT5 in December 2011.
Any help understanding the question papers better would be great!

Honestly, if you're having issues, you're going to struggle passing the test. You really need to rely on working solely in Japanese and try to cut English entirely out of the equation.

True enough, the questions will all be in Japanese on the actual test as well....I doubt if there are any translations around.
Maybe you can copypaste a specific question and we can take it from there.....?

Nearer the time perhaps, try www.japanesepod101.com

You can get a free 7 day trial if you don't want to pay for it, and it has a preparation course for the JLPT N5 (based on the old JLPT 4) which goes over the exam and explains exactly what each question is asking and how to answer. I found it quite helpful anyway.

I can agree with asthenia. N5 seems like an easy test, if you consider the fact that you only have to learn 100 Kanji and around 500 vocabulary words, but you are going to struggle if you can't easily read Japanese hiragana and katakana.

I would look over Tae Kim's explanations at http://www.guidetojapanese.org/blog/ of any grammar points you are having trouble with before the test.

Let us know how you do!
