I'm not sure of the exact genkouyoushi format, but I'd write it in plain form as actual newspaper articles are written in plain form.

Keep it similar to a regular essay structure: Title (maybe in 「」 brackets), Name on second line, plain form writing, and usual Intro, Body, Conclusion.

Thanks! I just stuck to polite form though, since my teacher advises us against writing in plain except for diary entries :P

Hi everyone,

What are possible questions that might be asked for お正月 (Japansse New Years) as a detailed study?

Thank you :)

Hi everyone,

What are possible questions that might be asked for お正月 (Japanese New Years) as a detailed study?

Thank you :)

1. What it is.
2. When it is.
3. Why do they celebrate it?
4. How do they celebrate it and how did they originate?
5. Things they don't do.
6. How long it lasts and comparison against other countries (e.g. China).
7. Compare modern celebrations with ancient Japanese celebrations. (Especially with technology evolving, changes may have happened.)
8. How areas differ in celebrations. (Not a great point, but still...)
9. How foreign countries contribute to Ooshougatsu/ Different influences on Ooshougatsu.
10. Impact Ooshogatsu makes to the economy (e.g. does it affect tourism, because Japanese natives return to their country? Does it affect businesses because they're closed?)

That's 10 points just off the top of my head for you. :D Good luck. (Sorry it's not in Japanese, but I can't do all the hard work for you! ;) )

I recommend this resource to all - https://animelon.com/

Turn off the English/roomaji and try watch some slice of life animes with Japanese subtitles. There's a dialogue tracker on the side which lets you look up words you don't know. Good way to learn new words and listen out for grammar patterns (Y)

Hey mate,
What kind of marks in the exam would approximately give a study score of 40-45? Cheers.

I'm not too sure, but I lost 4 marks overall for a 50 raw.

So perhaps for a 40-45 raw, you could lose around 8-10 marks? It really depends on how the cohort goes I would have thought.

Ok thanks. So would that be 8-10 marks on both the written exam and oral exam or just one of them?

It was 4 marks off just for the written for me.

My 8-10 marks number is just a pure guess.

Hi,
My detailed study topic is 少子化 or declining birth rate. What are some possible questions the assessor might ask?

Thanks :)

You've probably already got answers for these but: solutions to the  少子化 issue, what your opinions are on those solutions (ie: how effective you think they might be), comparison to Australia, should Japan follow things Australia are doing, what do you think Japan should do to combat the issue.
The tricky question might just follow on from things you just say in your answers.

Other general questions that pop up might be: what surprised you when you studied about 少子化? What did you find interesting doing the research? Why did you choose it? What source you used for X point?

Good luck

Hi Jibba,
I'm wondering if you have any samples of your high quality writing pieces (for example, on letter, essay format ect)? If you're not willing to share them, that's okay :) Thanks for your time!

Sorry for the late response. It's too late to be useful for yourself, but I'll think about it for the future!
