I have yet to decide whether I shall be taking the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT Level 4)this coming December. The exam may be months away, yet the deadline for registration is already on September 5.

Actually, Jap 12-13 prepares us for this level 4 proficiency in Nihonggo, level 1 being the highest. By that time, I should have "mastered the basic elements of grammar, knows about 100 Kanji and 800 words and has the ability to engage in simple conversation and to read and write short, simple sentences."

My personal reservations on not taking the exam are: (1)It's an investment of Php500 and I would reap the reward (if I pass) only by March 2007.
(2) Exam is on December, and this semester ends in October. Meaning, my practice of Nihonggo stops there. By that time, my Nihonggo may be rusty if I no longer practice. Remember, it costs Php500.
(3) I still am not sure about my plans for next semester. For sure, I'm still stucked in UP. Probably, I may get some work, which would mean I'd be busy from it and acads.
(4) I think I'm the class goat. Can I pass the test?

If I do pass, I'll have bragging rights... hmmm...
