Tokyo Institute of Technology

Well, I went to take the Japanese Language Proficiency Test today (level 1); the site this year for me was the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Unfortunately, I hadn't studied much and although I tried to do some last minute cramming, I really struggled. For the past two exams, I did fairly well with the kanji/vocab and listening portions and poorly for the reading comprehension/grammar portions, but this year, I was basically guessing most of the kanji and vocab. I tried not to let myself get down and concentrated on the next two parts. I was pretty confident with the listening portion, and I was surprised with how I managed the reading comp/grammar portion. Usually, I run out of time for that portion and end up wildly guessing, but this time, I not only finished ahead of time (by 3 minutes, lol), but I felt confident with two thirds of that part. However, I don't feel confident enough to think that I passed... I'll try to do a little more studying this time and try again next December (the test is only given once a year, for those who don't know). ^_^;;

The Level 1 test takers heading back home after the test. It was really cold today... and it started to rain, to boot.

A statue on the school grounds... don't know who he is though.
