For those looking for fresh, new content to read in Japanese, I have just the app recommendation for you.

However, I didn’t miss passing by too much, so let’s look at my score compared to the previous test and see how I improved and what I need to do for the future.
Here’s my Shin Nihongo 500 Mon series review. Another helpful series for increasing your Japanese knowledge! These books are perfect for someone aiming for the JLPT and need something small to carry around. The books are designed so that you only have to work a few pages each day, which is perfect for those that are at work or somewhere with not a lot of free time.

It hasn’t been so easy. However, I wanted to share my thoughts and study tips for those that are interested in the process.
