  • Preparation for this course


    This Japanese course contains vocabulary, expressions, and grammar arranged to correspond to the Japanese level needed for the JLPT N4. Furthermore, in order to advance communication proficiency in Japanese, you can watch these video lessons that show actual N4 level Japanese being used in daily conversations. All of the narration contains English subtitles, so that those learning Japanese for the first time can easily study the materials. 


    ---By the end of the course, learners will be able to do the following:

    1. Master vocabulary, expressions, and grammar related to the JLPT N4 level.
    2. Be able to comprehend contents slowly spoken in daily life conversations.
    3. Be able to comprehend and read typical phrases and sentences written in N4 level kanji.
    4. Be able to have Japanese elementary level conversations in everyday life.
    5. Be able to have speak and understand easy words of the honorific expressions.

    How to use these study materials 

    Make sure to download the files below first before you start studying.

    Please note that you need at least 80% correct on the comprehension tests to continue to the next lesson.
