JLPT N5 Wall Chart makes some super ridiculous claims. They say that you can pass JLPT N5 with a USD$27 wall chart. This wall chart is so convenient that you can fold it up and take it with you anywhere to study. Apparently, that’s better than carrying the same info in your smartphone.
The only truthful statement in the page was the one about the JLPT pass rates.
For anyone who is tempted to buy this product:
- To pass the exam, you need to know more than a list of kanji. You have to know GRAMMAR. JLPT has a reading and listening component for which this wall chart is of no use.
- There is no official list of kanji any more. The best we can do is grab several lists and combine them.
- It’s a waste of money. Take your friend out to see a movie instead.
