this morning i got an email with the list of stuff i need for the visa, and a course list:

1. Application form (attached in the Email)
2. Certificate of health (attached; form for some doctor to fill out)
3. Pledge (attached; "I won't break school rules")
4. Academic Transcript
5. Bank account Certificate of Balance
6. A photocopy of Passport
7. Three photographs (3 × 4 cm)

the course list has absolutely no explanation of what's taught in which course so i have no idea what level i'm at. searching for a course on their website bought up an up-to-date PDF for this year (2017) with a TINY explanation, which also had a link to a different page for incoming exchange students that i hadn't found before that had the class list as well; no idea why they didn't email this to us.


PDF: (english is below the japanese)

still doesn't explain what level i'm at; i've taken 3 semesters of japanese and by next month i'll be at N2 on the JLPT; with plans to be at N1 before the exchange. so i googled:

N1 – around 900 hours of study
N2 – around 600 hours of study
N4 – around 300 hours of study
N5 – around 150 hours of study

the problem is, miyagi's courses jump from "over 300" hours to "over 900" hours. no 600?? i'll take the safe route and sign up for the later "middle" courses and hope that i can switch to the advanced ones if it turns out i'm too advanced. also i don't know if they're going to make us do a ton of handwriting, if so i'm going to be really behind everyone else...
de Tvitero, al retletero, al alia retletero (dankon ĉiuj!!) kaj nun ricevis afablegan respondon de la Sendai-a esperantoklubo. spite ke ofte vidiĝas »sendajo« ĉe vikipedio ktp, ŝajne la klubo mem skribas »sendai«. nesciante se bonus nomi la helpantojn do ne nomos, sed inter aliaj informoj nomiĝis ĉi libroj:


流浪のグルメ: 東北めし

nu, ne povas manĝi sukeron kaj blankan farunon (estas kvazaŭ alergio) sed tre volas lerni pri la urbo, do aĉetos ĉi librojn malvintre kaj provos legi!!

the JLPT is being held in stockholm on july 2nd, i'm signing up for N2

you only have to pass 1/3rd in each section and i passed 2/3rds on the very quick sample N3 one, so since there's 3 more months until the test i'm certain i'll be able to pass N2. i hate these kinds of tests but i really need to get a job in japan, so i hope passing this will help me...

no special study plan, i'm just going to continue what i've already been doing, but try to do it faster.
Here's more detailed info for being an exchange student from Högskolan Dalarna to somewhere else:
