He didn't get where he is today by stealing somebody else's catchphrase.


Well, I've finally done it. I've gone and entered myself for the Level 4 Japanese Proficiency Test (*clicky*). It takes place in December in London. The examination takes place simultaneously around the world at virtually the same time. It's an internationally recognised qualification - much more so than my GCSE.

I was pondering over entering level 3 (the levels run backwards - 1 is hardest, 4 is easiest), but having now seen that some of the vocab and kanji are substantially different from my GCSE papers, this was probably the right thing to do. I seriously need to discipline myself into a good study regime, as I've only got two months to get it right.

Anyway, I ordered a past paper from these guys (*clicky*), which should allow me to get to grips with the examination format. And as a plus, they sell Japanese curry sauce at two quid a block! Marvellous! Gasp)
