不合格けど Let’s Examine the Exam!

先日、新しい漢字を習った。この漢字は勉強したくなかったけれども、今は笑顔です。じゃあ、この漢字は不合格です。実は、私は去年の12月の上旬に山口大学で日本語能力試験N 3に挑戦しました。

試験の前に一所懸命勉強しましたけれど、私にとってこの試験は難し過ぎた。結果をもらった時に、実は、私はびっくりしなかった。なぜなら、試験の途中でちょっと自信がなかったからです。試験が終わった時、「難し過ぎた。ダメだと思うけど、頑張ったし」と思った。しかも、試験を受けた後はいつもボロボロですね。

でも、日本語能力試験N 3にもう一度挑戦することになっている。この試験は私の人生において最初の不合格の試験ではない。しかも、最後の不合格の試験でもないかもしれません。

一番弱い部分は聞き取りでした。だから、最近は日本の音楽を聞いたり、日本のテレビを見たり、学校で職員室の会話に参加しています。でも、もちろん、いっぱい漢字や色々な文法も勉強しなくちゃ。

毎日、ちょっとずつ勉強したら、多分、次回は合格すると思います 。

難しくても、頑張らなくちゃ!

I learned a new Chinese character the other day, and while I did not necessarily want to learn this particular character, I am remaining positive. This Chinese character means “failure.” I wrote the exam for Level 3 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test last December at Yamaguchi University.

Before the test, I studied extremely hard, but it was simply too difficult for me. When I received the results that I had failed, I cannot say I was very surprised. During the test, I did not have much confidence and when the test ended, I knew I had done my best, but thought it would take a miracle to have passed.

I have decided to re-take the exam, and I know it is neither the first nor the last exam I will ever fail in my life.

The toughest part of the test for me was the listening section. So, recently I have been practicing my listening by watching Japanese television, listening to Japanese music and trying to participate more conversationally in places like the school office. However, I of course need to continue to focus on the Chinese characters and grammar.

I think that if I study a little every day, I can pass this exam the next time I take it.

No matter how difficult it is, I just gotta keep at it!
