Hi, took the JLPT for the first time last Dec and am quite confused by what I have received from JCS.

I received a "certificate of result and scores", as well as a letter asking me to collect the JLPT certificate from JCS. Is that different from what they sent me? What happens if I can't collect it by the stipulated date? Their opening hours aren't very convenient for people who have to work : p

Thanks in advance!!

i got to know Iwata sensei when she took N2 prep class the 1st yr she taught. outside class she is very intelligent. But i felt her lessons are a bit boring if u compare her to Ms bullet train (Kanai-sensei). she explains more than Kanai-sensei, but coming to N2 prep, Kanai-sensei will do a better job preparing students for the exam.
yeah, coz you need to be at a certain level to be at N1 and N2 prep classes. you are there to prep for the exams, and not there for the teacher to explain certain basic things to you.
if people start to ask too basic stuff, it will be time wasting for other students and the teacher.
think of the N1~N2 classes as a lecture rather than a tutorial class

But unfortunately, a lot of students think otherwise.

yah. and thats bad for everyone.
in every class, the teacher has to cover a certain amount of grammar and vocab, and there is not much time to do extra explanation.
if not, u will realize the bullet train going faster and faster

Like I do tell my students from N3 onwards, a lot of the grammar they need to read in advance. I will only explain the nuance n the impt parts of the grammar. That's y I felt that its v impt to learn the technique of how to improve by yourselves rather than have a sensei to spoon feed u. Now my N3 guys watch dramas (after 2.5 yrs with me), no need subs le. this jul and dec, taking N2.

Switching of Jap School

I am considering taking a twice weekly Basic (Elementary) 1 class with Hougang Jap school, as it is near to my place.

But in a couple of months, I would be able to do a 5 class per week course, which, unfortunately, Hougang Jap school does not provided.

So my question, is it possible to start off in Basic 2 (Intensive, 5-class weekly) in another school after I passed my Basic 1?

PS: I have checked that Ikoma has the 5-classes per week up to Advanced.
Any other Jap school, that also provide 5 classes per week, that I should check?


Thank you.
