JCS Exam – Grammar

12 11 2008

I had my Jap JCS Intermediate (B class) Grammar test on yesterday..

Didn’t study much, thus foundation is not very strong..

Got confused with some of the ‘forms’ and the sentence structures…

There are also tooooo many ‘forms’ in Japanese Language, I am still not very well-versed in the potential form, passive form, causative form, causative passive form…

I scored very well last year, in Beginner class. I scored 100/100 for both Semester 1 and 2 Grammar tests. As for the final exam, in Semester 3, I scored 96/100..

This year, in Intermediate level, I didn’t score as well..  Either I am not as hardworking (as last year), or I am not as clever (as last year) or the intermediate content is really quite tough… (Talk abt tough, I think JLPT3 is really tough… *Sigh* another headache in future… ) This year, I scored 85/100 in Semester 1 and 90/100 in Semester 2. I just hope I can score at least 80/100 for my this Grammar test.

Next paper is Composition, next Tuesday..

Not sure what to prepare, will ponder abt it..

Kanpatte!!

Thank you Lord for your wisdom and leading =)

Hi Sally, thanx for ur wishes =)
So u finished all exams already? Niceeee… can rest for 2 mths… hehee *holiday*

Hmm.. normally you will not know which teacher is teaching which class in the beginning when they release the class schedule, so just plan for the class time-table that you want. Who is your sensei? =) So u will take intermediate next year? =)

I will probably will continue to advance =)

Ohh.. so ur class is on Sunday..
Not sure which is ur sensei…
most sensei are kawai I guess =)
Yes, u got privillige, u will sign up before public, if i remember correctly.
No need to queue like mad, like signing for beginner that time…
If I am in Sg, I wil go and check my result, if not, will wait for the letter.
Or maybe u can help me check too, by then =)
Display results, not by ranking i guess.
But there will state ur rank for that level. and those who pass/fail.

konnichiwa~hajimemashite
nice to meet you juskawaime-san.
I am currently oso studying in JCS intermediate class….i happen to come across your blog through a random search on google.
which class are you in? my lessons are on sunday afternoons….and coincidentally, my sensei is the same as sAlLy, Hattori sensei.

Coming next week, there is still sakubun and listening exams for me……i think for me listening is gonna be tough….sensei went through a past year listening tape with us……it is really tough…i got none correct when we need to decipher if there is a ‘u’ or not and choose the correct word from the list :S…..

Anyway, ganbatte ne….

Hi cqq, thanx for dropping by =)
Mine is weekday class…
Hoohoo so coincidence.. sama teacher..
mine is pretty Naoko sensei..

I also in intermediate level.. yeah sakubun and listening for me too!
Have not been studying these few days.. maybe i should really start preparing.. and not another last minutes ‘buddha’ preparation..

As for listening, I know what u meant.. that is my weak part as well.. I think more listening practice will be helpful… But I found it not so difficult since i took preparation course for JLPT3 – that listening qs are worse!!!! I always score like 2-4 correct out of 13 qs.. Disgusting… and a worry for my JLPT3 in Dec… *sigh*

Thank you, Ganbatte to you as well!! =)

I wish you score flying colours.. and get into top 50 ranking! =)

I am not sure for the total no. of students though..

Yeah I have heard abt that by 2010 jlpt change their system already? gonna have 5 levels from N1-5. So not sure, by then maybe i have to retake JLPT3 again… hahaa *double sianz*

hi hi….Naoko sensei? very pretty desu ka?? me is very interested to know which is her… got 写真? … havent been taught by her yet… last year i was in A16 taught by Nakamura sensei, but she went back to Japan this year. Hopefully, next year i can get to know more senseis of JCS.

me taking JLPT3 this coming december too……but i havent even start studying a single thing for that yet (-.-)”…barely 3 weeks left….心配ですね… was the JLPT prep course from JCS helpful? initially wanted to sign up for that prep course, but when the timing is out, i couldn’t make it for that timing =.=”

Hi cqq, at least to me my sensei is kirei and kawai =)
very nice, sweet and patient too..

Me also quite worried.. for JLPT3 …
JLPT prep course is useful for listening.. (coz my listening sucks!! It still sucks now unfortunately..) but it all boils to own’s study

Lets Ganbatte together!! =D
