The JLPT is coming

So, which of you folks are taking the JLPT during the summer session? To you, I tip my hat and wish you good luck in your academic endeavors.

To those of you who, like me, are planning to take it in winter… what are you waiting for?

December seems worlds away. I get it. Amidst work life, personal life, and anything else happening in your, er, life, it can feel easy to push off studying for one more day. What’s the harm, after all?

None at all, if you’re that confident about passing.

If you’re not, now is the time to kick your study into medium-gear. (High gear will come in September, trust me.) If you’ve been eyeing textbooks, get them. If you’re going to take an intensive course, see about signing up for it. If you’ve been meaning to start studying every day, now’s the time to do it.

I’m mainly directing that last sentence at myself, here.

For me, personally, I’m intending to get back into using Anki and going through my textbooks regularly. What about you? What strategies do you have up your sleeve? Are you going with the same study plan as before? Trying a new one? Or is this your first time taking the JLPT and are feeling a bit overwhelmed by it all?
