N4 Level Japanese Language (Batch N4_08) Neera_Sensei
The N4 Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) measures basic levels of language proficiency. It is the second easiest exam after N5, and it tests the reading, and listening abilities of Japanese learned primarily at the beginner and intermediate level. The N4 is the second level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). To pass the N4, one will need to know about 300 kanji and about 1,500 vocabulary words.
- The N4 tests literary knowledge of approximately 300 kanji along with hiragana and katakana. Compared to the N5, the N4 has less kanji with furigana, which shows the phonetics of the kanji above it in hiragana. Test takers should familiarize themselves with the phonetic reading and meaning of more kanji than was required for the N5.
- The listening section of the N4 tests one’s ability to comprehend and follow conversations about familiar topics and situations. The audio is spoken at a slow pace, like the N5. The audio used in the N4 will use expressions and vocabulary that are slightly more advanced and complex than the N5, so having more listening experience and ability is a must.
