やった！日本語ペラペラだよぉぉ！Yes after a few months of waiting I finally got the results of my JLPT test today, and I passed! Hurrah. My score of 310 comfortably cleared the 240 I needed, the only downside being that Georgina somehow managed to get 311! One mark more! God dammit!! Still, both very respectable scores out of 400. Grrrr.
Having planned on making this my last Japanese qualification, I’ve decided to “ganbare” for the next level, 2, which I can take in London this year or next. Why not eh. Only another 600 Chinese characters and, err, 4,500 words to learn. Hmm.
The title, by the way, is a cheesy Japanese joke, or おやじギャグ that got a lot of laughs today. You see “sankyuu” is the level of the test that I took, level 3 or “san” in Japanese. But sankyuu is also the way (some) Japanese people say “thankyou”. Hee hee. Ahem.
Anyway tomorrow I’m off to the grim north of Hokkaido; with temperatures that rarely break above freezing, it will easily be the coldest place I’ve ever visited. If I survive the trip, expect magnificent photos and fantabulous words to appear on this blog after I return.
