Japanese language cannot be mastered by learning the words or the rules of grammar. They are told only to teach the correct building of sentences.
Make it a daily activity to speak the sentences given in the class (Around 500 for N4, around 1200 for N3 and around 3500 for N2) for half an hour only and it will automatically help you learning the words, grammar and even particle usage.
Like a child learns language by listening to his parents, TV, neighbors, friends etc, as a foreign language student, we have to become our own friends by making ourselves listen the language 4-5 times every time we understand any new thing in class.
Whenever a new word comes, don't learn it by its English meaning only. English meaning is required we understand, but only in the initial phase when we don’t know its meaning and usage at all.
Once we are familiar by its meaning and usage, learn it by repeating the sentence. If sentence is not there, try to find and underline it wherever it is there in your text book and speak that sentence listen by yourself as many times you can.
The first thing I would like to advise you is that if you keep attending the classes @ NIHONGOMAX, your half of the work is already done.
Second thing is if you follow the instructions given above honestly, your chances of failing in the exams become minimal.
Also, there is a common myth about CHOUKAI that it is the most difficult section in exam. Believe it or not, while speaking the sentences you will automatically feel a significant improvement in your listening skills. So keep listening the CD given and chanting the script given along with it.

There are 4 steps to master listening. First listen the track in one go and guess the answer be it wrong. Second play the same track again by pausing on every sentence and think the meaning of every sentence individually. Third play the same track again and read along with the script given with stopping on every word you feel not understood. By this step almost 90% chokai is understood usually. Fourth play the same track again and pause on every sentence and speak after it. This fourth step will ensure the 100% understanding of chokai and your very quick enhancement in kaiwa skills.
Have you heard people saying “Oh no! Japanese is really a tough language”?

Is Japanese speaking difficult?
The pattern of Japanese resembles to that of Hindi. As its grammar base is completely different from English, it seems difficult to native English speakers such as Americans or Europeans. So there is a worldwide impression of Japanese being difficult. On the contrary, for Hindi speakers it is extremely easy because it is spoken completely like Hindi.
But I saw the script is very difficult. Isn’t it?
Yes, that’s true. The script of Japanese is a little hard to learn. That’s where we have told you the correct way to learn it from the very beginning till the end. Also the classification and a well organized course material is there to make it easily comprehendible.
