As I mentioned before, I am currently studying for the JLPT N1. In addition to this, I am also considering taking the Kanji Kentei in June (which I will do a separate post on).
As part of my JLPT studies, I use Memrise to drill vocabulary and kanji. I don’t think Memrise is enough on its own to learn vocabulary. However, when used in combination with other methods, it is helpful.
The links posted below are Memrise courses that I’ve been using. Since starting, I can say that I do come across a lot of these words relatively often. I also believe they’ve made a difference in my reading so far as well, which is why I recommend them.
Memrise Courses I Use For New Vocabulary:
- 3000 N1 Vocabulary – 日本語単語スピードマスター
- Business Japanese
- JLPT N1 (漢語) Verbs, Na-Adj and Nouns
- JLPT N1 2000 Vocabulary Words
- JLPT N1 Adjectives (形容詞)
- JLPT N1 Combined Words (複合語
- JLPT N1 Nouns (名詞)
- JLPT N1 Vocabulary (Tanos) (Random Order)
- JLPT N1 Words With Difficult Yomikata
- 新完全マスター漢字 N1
- JLPT N3 Standard 2400 Part 1
- JLPT N3 Standard 2400 Part 2
- Shin Kanzen Master N2 Vocabulary 1
- Shin Kanzen Master N2 Vocabulary 2
I don’t use every one of these every single day, but I do make sure to at least do the reviews every day as well as at least 5 of them. I find them to work well with the books as you can learn the words and then quiz them in context. However, if you don’t have them, they’re still a great way to gain exposure to new words.
Hopefully, this helps you with your studies!
Until next time 🙂
