Your score, please ??

Posted in Uncategorized at 3:58 pm by prabandana

Its been 1 week since my second Japanese Language Proficiency Test. Taking the level two was really so tiring for me, a full time (umm, for most of the days are more than full time) employee with only a 2 hours per week japanese class. Most of the JLPT fellows know very well that the preparation(time,material, energy) you need for upgrading the level from lev 4 to lev 3 is far from enough to cover the gap between lev 3 and lev 2.. (JLPT has 4 level, of which level 1 is the highest one..).. dont ask me about the result OK?.. hahaha.. it will come knock my door in the middle of february, and cannot hope so much for it.

One day, when i felt so tired and still have a bunch of homework from the teacher to catchup the material within 2 months, I just ask my self, how come they have such proficiency test?? Undoubtedly, English is the you-must-know language all around the world, and as a non-native speaker, such test like TOEFL or TOEIC is much more reasonable to take.. But japanese? the one use japanese are only they who are living in Japan..You need the test since you have to master the language so that you get live there, study there, something that you cannot get unless you master the language.. (i mean its not mandatory for you to pass the test if you don’t really need to)..

Everyone know the country of which the language got a proficiency standard must have “something” make us put our soul in the front line to master the language. Japan has so such”something”, lets say technology, science, culture,live, attract so many people to get those “something”. The bad news is.. Basically, japan has been so strong from the “knowledge share”point of view. I can say, you can get every books you need no matter your interest, all provided in japanese.. The economy has also been quite good that they can stand and run by themselves.Although its true that there are some fundamental reason for japaneese can hardly learn english or other language, I can say that for now, its not so urgent for japanese to learn english,lets say.. Thats why, once someone decide to get something from japan, japaneese is a must.

I dont know exactly which country have the language proficiency standard, but basically, the more poeple need it, the more popular the test, which is with the same analogy, the need of a language proficiency test somehow show the strength of a country. I will agree that if there are two most important language in the world, they will be English and chinese.

Then, i just look at my self when one day, someone ask me, how many languages i master natively. Ah, yeah we master two : Javanese and Indonesia, hahaha.. he said “whoo great, so you can speak 2 natively, and now English and japanese?? ” But so sad, none of the two are listed in the most used language for international commmunication, not like a chinese singaporean who even cry in chinese laugh in English since they were baby..

Hahaha. no problem, i really believe someday Indonesia will be much better, when the ILPT (Indonesia Language Proficiency Test) is a must, Indonesia language courses will be a good business to run, and when so many books of the test preparation load the bookstore shelves.. hmmm..

    wahaha.. mas aku juga ikut JLPT, level 4, masih cupu, hehe.. klo disini keluar skornya maret.

    gini, biaya tes TOFL tu bisa nyampe sejuta karena emang udah jadi bahasa internasional, karena banyak yg butuh. nah klo nouryoku shiken, di Indonesia cuma 50rb yg level4, 75rb yg level 1, very2 cheap =D. ceritanya memasyarakatkan bahasa jepang dulu, biar ga pada males ikut tes.

    nah, klo javanese and indonesian, haha, bikin tes gratis aja, apatuh namanya ILPT hehe. biar rame2 pada ikut, kalo perlu dapet hadiah, halah..

    wow kamu ambil JLPT, ga kebayang loh akhirnya kamu yang menguasai b jepang. 3 tahun yang lalu aku juga ambil JLPT level 2, di kampus widyatama (suci) ujiannya. Seperti yang sudah di tebak “GAGAL”. kurang 29 jawaban betul buat lulus. Sebagai temen aku ikut senang liat kamu sukses. just incase kamu lupa kita pernah seangkatan loh di el02.
