Japanese language necessary for a visa? Hmmm……

Some people may see this as a barrier, but I tend to see it more as a challenge. If that is what it takes to come to Japan, let the show begin then!

This blog explained that the main reference used by the Japanese govt to examine a foreigner’s proficiency is the JLPT, with all its weaknesses being elaborated upon by using a direct comparison between Japanese JLPT and English TOEIC. Well, I tend to see it that way too, especially since JLPT never tests one’s speaking or writing ability. There are only Grammar, Vocabulary, Kanji, and Listening comprehension for one to study, and they furthermore still provide 4 choices of answers for you, giving each of your guess shots a 25% possibility of being correct.

Another blog also tells me about the possibility of having a JLPT level “pre-1” being considered. It’s not a bad idea, but if they wanna put it as such, they should also consider having a level “pre-2”, since the gap between pre-3 and pre-2 is simply waaaaaay too wide.

If only the Japanese government allows me to take Japanese citizenship as my second, and not requiring me to let go off my first one, I’d be happy to take it straight away. Too bad the news is limited to the visa only.

Australia ,New South Wales: The inhabitants of New South Wales are never far from adventure for the main focus of outdoor sports here is the Great Dividing Range, which runs parallel and close to the densely populated eastern seaboard for the entire length of the state. Many parts of the Great Dividing Range are rugged enough to have escaped the clearing that occurred as European settlers spread westward from the coast, and today patches of magnificent virgin forest still cloak peaks and escarpments and fill valleys. Although eucalypt forests predominate, alpine heaths cover high peaks in the south, and scattered pockets of subtropical rainforest become more common as you travel northward. The Great Dividing Range offers almost unlimited challenges for adventures, including cliffs for rock climbers, vast tracks of bushland for walkers, and scenic fire trails and rugged back roads for mountain bikers. The highest peaks and plateaus of the Snowy Mountains are a winter playground for ski-tourers. The rivers that have carved their way through the ranges offer opportunities for canoeing, kayaking and rafting, while the narrowest gorges provide a venue for the exciting sport of canyoning. Further west, New South Wales offers entirely different landscapes including semiarid plains and the red-sand deserts and dramatic rockscapes that characterize classic outback country.
