合格 or I……….Passed!

今日は下松教育委員会から、私の日本語能力試験の三級の結果をもらいました。封筒を開けながら、とってもドキドキしていた。

結果を開ける前に、妻は「開けて、開けて、早く開けてね!結果を聞きたいの」と言った。

僕は「そうしまーす」と封筒を見ながらを言った。

封筒を開けて、いきなり「合格 Passed」と読んでしまった。

さっそく、妻の肩を抱いてしまった。

結果を信じられなかった!

実は、結果はやっぱり不合格になってきたと想像していた。なぜなら、この試験、昨年の12月に初めて受けて、全然出来なかったから。だけど、試験を受けた後、毎日、三級のレベルを合格できるように一所懸命勉強して、勉強が難しくても、諦めなかった。

次の挑戦は二級だと思っています。その試験はもっともっと難しそうだけれど、頑張らないといけない!

みんなさん、私の事を信じて、色々なサポートをくれて下さって、本当にありがとうございました!

すぐに、一緒に乾杯しましょう!

では、どうもありがとう!また、よろしくお願いします。

I received the test results for Level 3 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test from the Kudamatsu Board of Education today. I was quite nervous as I opened the envelope.

“Open it! Open it! Quick, open it! I want to know the results!,” my wife said.

“Ok, let’s see what it says,” I replied, looking at the envelope.

So, I opened it and the first thing I read was “Passed.”

My wife and I immediately embraced.

I really could not believe the results!

I honestly imagined the results to have been “Not Passed.” It was last December I first took this exam, and I failed it quite miserably. However, after that exam, I studied as hard as I possibly could each day to be able to pass it during round two, and no matter how difficult it got, I never gave up on myself.

I believe the next challenge will be Level 2. The next level looks like quite the jump, however if I just keep practicing and studying, I believe I can do it.

I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone for believing in me and offering me lots of support as I continue my Japanese studies.

Let’s “kanpai” soon!
