Introduction Jlpt Grammar


To study the grammar of level N3 you first have to be sure and confident about the grammar of levels N5 and N4. In other words unless and until you are clear with the concepts and use of basic grammar i.e. N5 and N4 level you will not understand the grammar of N3.

The Japanese grammar of JLPT level N3 consists of grammar of N4 as well as some more additions of sentence patterns. The difficulty level of this level is more than level N4.

We will be introduced to approximately 60 new sentence patterns. To make the study of Jlpt grammar of this level easy for you we have divided it into different lessons. Each lesson will introduce you to a set of new sentence patterns along with some examples. Again it is not necessary that one pattern can be used in only one way and has only one meaning to it. One pattern can have one or more than one use and meaning. In some sentence patterns there is no compulsion or rule that you should use a particular form of the verbs, adjectives or nouns but in some other this rule is applied. You will come to know this difference only when you start learning the sentence patterns. The patterns are made by joining two particles or a particle and a verb or only a word which has a meaning of its own. You will also realize that there are patterns which are almost similar to each other but a minute difference makes a big difference. In addition in many sentence patterns you will realize the time at which the action takes place plays a very important role in deciding which pattern should be used to convey the correct meaning.

As the level of difficulty has increased it is very important that you study them keenly, seriously and with lots of attention. Since this the higher level it is necessary for you to study the grammar everyday and with concentration. While learning these patterns you will notice that there are some clues present in it which help you to remember the use of the pattern at the right place also while answering the questions it becomes easier if you know the hint. Donít be in a rush to finish off the syllabus because if you do so you finally will realize that you have confused yourself. Hence take time and study each grammar pattern carefully and one-by-one. Another important thing to keep in mind is that donít jump from the first lesson to the forth or sixth lesson directly. You should study the lessons in the serial order only starting from the first lesson. But make it a habit to study grammar daily without fail. If you wish to pass the Dokkai section with flying colors then you have to be confident and thorough in Japanese grammar. The main reason behind this is that the Dokkai

section is based only on grammar. There are questions like fill in the blanks which are directly concerned to the sentence patterns. The other questions which are comprehension based also are connected to the grammar because if you donít know the meaning of a particular sentence pattern then you might end up understanding it in a wrong way.

As I always suggest you about Japanese grammar, once you learn a sentence patter try and make your own examples. In addition to this try and use these patterns in your conversations also. This practice not only helps you to get a command over grammar but also brings confidence in you that you know the language very well. So letís now start studying the JLPT N3 jJapanese grammar by reading and understanding the first lesson. Check out for more here JLPT Grammar Lesson 1
