JLPT N5 Courses at Memrise

  2. 2. © Copyright 2014 First, you really really need to use an IME in order to get the most out of this course. (Yes, I'm serious.)
  3. 3. © Copyright 2014 IMEs help you type Japanese characters on whatever OS you have.
  4. 4. © Copyright 2014 Most Mac and PC users prefer Google IME. You can read more about it at the link below:
  5. 5. © Copyright 2014 Second, don't be afraid to make liberal use of the ignore function.
  6. 6. © Copyright 2014 Different levels of a course might test the same material but in a different way*. If you don't like being tested that way just ignore it. Different levels of a course might test the same material but in a different way*. If you don't like being tested that way just ignore the entire level. *I'll explain these differences in a moment.

  8. 8. © Copyright 2014 This one tests you on the kana spelling of the word then the kanji spelling of the word. Level 1 Level 2 red → あか    red → 赤
  9. 9. © Copyright 2014 Some people don't find this very challenging because it usually just involves you hitting the space bar to change it into a kanji character for the second test. Level 1 Level 2 red → あか    red → 赤
  10. 10. © Copyright 2014 The N5 Readings course tests you on how the word appears in common Japanese and then tests you on its reading. Like so: Level 1 Level 2 red → 赤    赤 → あか
  11. 11. © Copyright 2014 What do I mean by 'common Japanese'? I mean how that word appears in natural Japanese writing.
  12. 12. © Copyright 2014 You see some words have difficult kanji, that no one uses. Like the word for 'noisy' in Japanese: うるさい → 煩い (not commonly used) urusai  
  13. 13. © Copyright 2014 So, you are drilled on just the hiragana spelling of the word and not the kanji. You won't be drilled on the reading of the kanji either. うるさい → 煩い (not commonly used) urusai  
  14. 14. © Copyright 2014 The final course, N5 Grammar, drills grammar points for the N5 level using vocabulary and phrases.  Noisy dog → うるさい いぬ urusai     inu  
  15. 15. © Copyright 2014 Each grammar point is introduced through explanatory videos from my YouTube channel.  
  16. 16. © Copyright 2014 Unfortunately this course is currently under construction. But, I will be adding to it regularly.  
  17. 17. © Copyright 2014 So there you have it all three courses for N5. If you want to change to another course, you can click on the icon below:
