hey wanted to ask for advice... been reading Japanese for several (6~) years until it's pretty comfortable to me... only thing is I have not taken any class ever since my beginner years ago... So everything I know is 'chapalang'... esp grammar

My sources have pretty much been from watching nicovideo, japanese forums (2ch), and watching TV programmes raw (anime or just general stuff)... I do chat in Japanese on a Japanese friend's forum...

But I'm damn well aware what I know is only useful for everyday stuff as it's filled with net lingo and I want to train myself up to at least N2 standard after my Uni, so I can utilise the skill eventually...

dimitri_can got any advice how I should take this path?

Hmm, looking at your situation. Since right now you are lacking in grammar. Suggest you get a private teacher to help you to set things straight.... School might be a bit overkill for you... unless u don't mind starting slow...

oh, any tips on finding one?

No idea how to find private teachers..

Yeah I also don't think the standard school syllabus will be suited for me, thanks!

Hello guys, can anyone recommend some good textbooks for N3 Grammar and Vocab? I will be taking N3 this December and would like to start preparing for it.

Are the Nihongo So-Matome series good?
White Rabbit Press The Complete Set: Nihongo So-matome JLPT N3

I am looking for something that gives detailed explanation with various examples.
