    Hi Sir, I liked your study material very much. Its just amazing to learn, just wanted to ask you that is this material (currently available on your website) sufficient to pass JLPT N5, or is there any thing else we need to go through? Please do reply, eagerly waiting for your reply.
    Thank you.

    • Nihongo Library says:

      Thanks for your kind comment.
      Concerning the grammar for N5, my materials are enough to pass JLPT N5. But, I recommend you to use other books like “Jitsuryoku Up N5 yomu”, “Kanzen moshi N5” etc to prepare well for the exam =)

  43. Kiranbala says:

    Thank you so much sir.
    Wonderful material.This is very helpful.

  44. Rikin Patel says:

    Wonderful sir. Thank you for providing this material. you are the best.

  46. NitinSharma says:

    hi i want to study again Japanese…will start from the beginning as it has been 3*4 years since i read Japaneses.
    so will ask you is it the complete material or there is more to read in N5.
    if i go through with this material which is given will that be sufficient to clear thee exam

    • Nihongo Library says:

      Hi,
      Concerning the grammar for N5, my materials cover almost all (98%). The rest (2%) I’m not sure but it is sufficient to pass the exam.
      Anyway, I recommend you to read many texts after studying grammar.
      “Jitsuryoku Up N5 yomu” is also a good book to prepare for JLPT N5. =)

  47. zee says:

    I’ve bookmarked this! Thank you so much! I might takemine on 2019! Thank you for your help.

    • Nihongo Library says:

  48. Matina says:

    Hi from Greece,i just found this amazing page and i am thrilled.I use tablet and i downloaded adobe reader but i can’t listen the audio.Any help?

    • Nihongo Library says:

      Hi Matina. =)
      Thanks for your kind comment.
      Sorry but Adobe Reader for tablet and phone doesn’t support interactive PDF format. It works only for PC. I hope it will work on tablet in the near future.

  49. Zara says:

    I love your content so much, it is so helpful! Are you also going to come out with study material for the other JLPT levels?

    • Nihongo Library says:

      Thanks for your kind comment.
      I’m planning on making a grammar material for JLPT N4. But next year. =)

  50. khaled says:

    Thank you for this amazing work,I’m in N5 course now, and this will help me so far, specially in kanji. Kindly check the kanji book again, we are waiting for a new revision of your amazing work.
    Another thing, you may help me in it, unfortunately, I can’t play the audios, shall I have adobe reader?? or download the audio from someplace??
    Again and again, thank you very very very much
    ほんとありがとうございます。

    • Nihongo Library says:

      Thanks for your kind reply.
      I would like to check the materials again as soon as possible. If you find errors, please let me know. I can quickly correct and reupload it. Due to my busy work I don’t have time to check attentively.

      As for the audio, only Adobe Reader allows you to play audio on PDF file. It is a special format and not a normal PDF file.
      And I recommend you to update Adobe Reader for PC to the latest version. All audio files are included in the Interactive PDF file.
      If it doesn’t work, please feel free to contact me. =)
      どういたしまして =)

  51. Rushab says:

    • Nihongo Library says:

      Thanks for your kind comment.
      I hope you pass the exam next year. =)

      • Raghav Malhotra says:

        I noticed a mistake in one of the notes and was hoping to notify you so it could be fixed. I expect these errors to be rare, but as I find them, I would only make the already great material, even better. Please let me know how I can forward it to you 🙂

  53. somashekar says:

    n4 grammer we want

    • Nihongo Library says:

      Actually I don’t have enough time to create new material. I finished picking up all N4 grammar but it will take me time to make exercises to practice. It will be available next year. I recommend you to buy the book “Shin kanzen Master N4” or “Jitsuryoku UP N4 Yomu”. These books are also good to study the grammar quickly.

  54. Rushab kamble says:

    Sir in vocabulary list I seen あした means morning but I think あした means tomorrow please can u check and correct this.

  55. Roselle says:

    I’m planning to take the JLPT exam of N5 and your working materials is easy to understand.Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.

    Hope to see N4 materials soon, especially after finishing all N5 lessons!

    Greetings from Germany.

    • Nihongo Library says:

      Thanks for your kind message.
      I’m so glad that you are motivated to learn my language again.
      German is one of my favorite languages. I tried to make Japanese materials in German but without Native German Speaker it was difficult so I gave up. XD
      Your message also motivated me to restart to study German.
      I hope the materials help you to learn Japanese.

      Thanks

      • mai says:

        I’d gladly help you with translations from English to German, or correct your translations!:)
        Practice makes perfect

        • Nihongo Library says:

          It sounds awesome but do you think there is a need for Japanese book in German?
          German people speak fluently English so I’m asking myself if it is really necessary or not.
          What do you think about it?

        • Nihongo Library says:

          Hi,
          I’m thinking about having a Twitter account or Facebook Page if many people need to be notified about N4 lessons. =)

      • sakshi taneja says:

        • Nihongo Library says:

          Hi,

          If you need a material for N4, I recommend you to buy the book “Jitsuryoku UP N4 Yomu”.
          It is a good book to study grammar quickly and the explanation is very clear. =)
