    A2 Japanese is killing me.

    Does anyone know if there is vocabulary list for A-level Japanese? Or alternatively, what JLPT level it's roughly working at (I think most of it is JLPT N3, but I'm not sure), and if there a vocab list for that level?

    I'm just scared that it'll be the fact I don't know basic words that will trip me up.

    Thanks!

    I did Edexcel AS / A2 Japanese and it was so difficult. If you want an A*/A, you don't need to concentrate specifically on vocabulary. You just need to bang out two sick essays and recall some specific things about your researched topic. Memorise your literature essay(s) and hopefully you'll get lucky. There's too much to learn! I did Japanese as a 4th subject and it's safe to say it took up 75% of my time!!!

    おはよう、皆様!

    New to the site in general actually, joined mostly for advice on taking the JP GCSE. It seems a fair few people take it here which is awesome! JP isn't offered anywhere where I am, so I've been self learning since Y9 (though I didn't even get slightly serious and learn much beyond kana and basic tenses till Y10)

    A series of sites I'm sure many of you may love are those in the Tofugu series. They have a blog, and a variety of other teaching resources.

    Anyway, I hope we can all succeed at our goals!

    hello, I'm doing French and Japanese and my year abroad will be spent in Japan, however I have no idea which area of Japan to go for. Here is a list of partner unis I can choose from:
    https://www.uea.ac.uk/study/study-ab...inations/japan

    I really don't know which area of Japan to go for. I'd like somehwre with good transport links, a good night life, plenty to do and see during the day etc... I'm thinking potentially Tokyo but not 100%...

    any help would be appreciated

    I can't say that I have any experience with this, but I have a friend who's also preparing for her year abroad too, and Waseda is her favourite - seems to be a very good choice. Slap bang in the middle of Tokyo. It looks like a lovely campus too! I think I'd keen to be in Tokyo if I was out there. Tokyo living expenses are quite high compared to the rest of the country (I can actually vouch for that with experience, haha!), but it's do-able - and I suppose that both institutions might be able to help you financially?

    This doesn't sound very helpful, but just throwing my two cents in! It must be so exciting to be thinking about it.

    Waseda was one of my favourites too That and Gakushuin and Meiji...all in the Tokyo areas. I was kinda veering towards toyo anyway I think. Fingers crossed that my current uni provides some support, I don't know if it might vary based on income but I get grants etc anyway due to low income so fingers crossed haha

    Whoops, just seen this! Hmm, fair enough. Yep, I'm going to have to concentrate on rewriting those essays forever! I know, it takes up all my time too.
