Japanese proficiency test results out today.
Score required for a pass: 90 points.
Score I got: 89.
Compared with last time, here's how my individual results changed.
Vocab/grammar: 23 -> 25 / 60
Reading: 23 -> 22 / 60 (!)
Listening: 31 -> 42 / 60
Don't you like that? I did not actively 'study' listening at *all* in the whole year. Instead, I spent hours and hours learning lots of new kanji and vocabulary, poring over boring text after boring text, reviewing and reviewing the same grammar, trying to get it to stick… and doesn't it show!
