Dear WaniKani experts,
Please help me to come up with ultimate study plan for the next 2 months.
I plan to move to Japan by that time and I will need to use Japanese for work if not immediately but in near future. And my goal is to pass N2 in summer 2020. Soon after arriving to Japan I plan to sign up for afterwork or/and weekend language school classes.
I’m currently N4 certificate holder and at summer 2019 JLPT I almost got N3 BUT lack only 2 scores, so didn’t pass.
I signed up for N2 (1st December 2019 JLPT) not hoping to pass it but just to push myself to study more and to see how N2 looks. Feel really disappointed with myself as I only could tell general topic of texts and audio, a bit better with vocabulary but still… Total fail.
Here is something from my study background: 2 times language schools for 2.5 months in Japan, both books Minna no Nihongo completed, a lot of self-study, Japanese teacher online 1-2 times a week… and of course WaniKani, but honestly Im very slow, realistically I can do not more than 1 level in 20 days only - considering that I will do also other study (grammar, listening).
Some questions I have which I hope will help me to design the plan:
- Should I maybe only focus on WaniKani so I can boost my vocabulary and kanji till level 27 hopefully?
- Or should I do WaniKani AND reading?
- Which grammar I should focus on? N3 or N2? And which book should I use? (I have training book for N3, reading training for both N3 and N2).
- I thought to sign up for some online classes – if someone have any suggestions?
Thank you very much!
