I am compiling a comprehensive online course for beginners and intermediate students but it is taking a long time, so in the meantime, I have decided to offer different sets of exercises targeting a particular grammar area as a standalone exercise module so that you can start working on the grammar points you don’t feel confident of. Also, that way, I can keep the price down. You can study each module for around the price of a cup of coffee!
JLPT N5 Level
The exercises are build on Moodle Platform. Each module will be made of a few quiz sets including multiple choice, drag and drop, fill in the blanks, etc. and will be marked immediately after you complete the exercise. Each question will have its English translation, explanation and possible alternatives. Most quiz sets pull questions out of my database, so each time you attempt a quiz, you are likely to come across different sets of questions.
I will keep the subscription cost of each module down, so unless specified otherwise, all modules are currently offered at AUD 2.00 for 4 weeks and AUD 5.00 for 12 weeks – less than the price of a cup of coffee! PayPal enrolment lets you start using the course straight away!
Beginners’ Particle module
The first module on offer is the beginners’ basic particles module, which covers か、が、から、で、と、に、ね、の、は、まで、も、や、よ、and を. You can watch my YouTube video covering the topic, download its explanation note and you can learn them by doing the quizzes. This is suitable for JLPT N4/N5 candidates. Senior high school students studying for HSC, VCE, etc.
Describing Location Module
Let’s practise location sentences with this module.
Basic Contact Clause Module
A contact clause is an adjectival clause that is placed directly in front of the noun the clause is modifying, such as きのう かった 本 (the book I bought yesterday). Until you get used to it, it is not easy to spot a contact clause in the sentence. This module helps you to spot them in a sentence as well as compose it yourself.
Transitive Verbs vs Intransitive Verbs Module
This module comes with a comprehensive list of transitive and intransitive verbs you need to know for the JLPT N4 exam. The table not only tells you if the verb is transitive or intransitive but also ichi-dan or go-dan. There are 3 sets of multiple choice questions to help you understand and remember the difference between transitive and intransitive verbs (such as とめる vs とまる).
Adding the meaning of “can” 1 – ～することができる
This module helps you to get used to the “～することができる” sentence pattern. It includes exercises for “rewriting” and “unjumbling.”
Adding the meaning of “can” 2 – using a potential (form) verb
This module helps you to familiarize yourself with the potential form of verbs and potential verbs.
Adding the meaning of “can” 3 – Change between the 2 patterns
This module has questions to change from ことができる pattern to the pattern with potential (form) verbs and vice versa.
