Well, you'll agree with the fact that communication is of utmost importance at any workplace... don't you?
However good you are at your work skills, it will be of no use if you fail to communicate properly with your colleagues.
So that being said, I would like to share my study techniques to learn Japanese and prepare for JLPT N2 examination in a fun way.
My name is Vivek and this blog post is intended for those who are preparing for JLPT N2
(Japanese Language Proficiency Test N2) (日本語能力試験 N2)
Let's get started...
I believe following are the major types of communication
Verbal Non-Verbal Written
If you observe carefully more than 70% of the time you need some language to communicate. Whether you write something or speak of/about something.
So, to sum up here... I would say
Language is essentially a means of communication among the members of a society. You need to master the language (in which you are communicating) to communicate effectively.In my case, being in Japan IT industry for more than 4 years now, I had to learn Japanese for my work. And you must agree with this.. it is one of the most difficult languages in the world.
During my Japanese Language study I tried various method and tools and here I would like to share those with all of you.
Learn using Memrise
The most difficult part of learning any language is to memorize alphabets and vocabulary. Memrise as per its name, it helps to memorize things which you have to learn by heart.
It uses mems to help you form vivid, sensory memories. It tests you continuously, always making sure to give your brain just the right workout. It also reminds you of what you've learned at scientifically optimized times so your memories are always growing stronger and never forgotten.
I'm currently undertaking the following courses on Memrise
1) JLPT N2 from Memrise Beta
2) JLPT N2 Target 2000 Vocabulary
3) N2 Kanji
Learn using YouTubeYou read it right! Learn using YouTube.
Imagine how great it is to learn from good teachers by watching video anywhere anytime without even have to go to School.
I'm a visual learner and hence YouTube has always been a great place for me to learn anything.
I would like to recommend the following courses to prepare for JLPT N2 exam from Nihongo no Mori.
And again, believe me, you need not go to any School if you take these video courses
1) VS JLPT N2 Grammar
2) Kanji N2
3) JLPT N2 ことばJLPT N2 Target 2000 Vocabulary - Memrise course in mind. You can use this video lecture combined with Memrise course and your efforts to memorize vocabulary will be drastically reduced.
4) 耳から覚える語彙 N2
Well, folks that all I have for now...
See you soon with some technical blog till then
Happy Learning... :)
