Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
First, thanks for seeing if there was anything offered at Dauphine...I heard someone saying they do. But apparently not...
To answer to your questions:
Europe would be still within the reach, but preferably UK.
US is a little too far for us now. I say us, because I am married to a French, and she likes to be near her family...at least for now:)
To learn Japanese/...hmmm:
Depends on how good your level is!
If you are able to write Hiragana, Katakana, and at least 100 chinese charators, then yes, you could start taking some lessons.
Othewise, I dont see the point in taking classes, coz you'll have to memorise a lot.
If you have cleared the above, perhaps taking private lessons would be effective. Or otherwise, "Kumon Juku", traditionally for school kids, but very very good for all ages!!
If you are in the advanced level, perhaps you could attend one of the Keio Japanese language classes....you'll encouter many chinese students who already know 5000 chinese charactors LOL
Basically, what do you know at this level?
Send me your e-mail by PM, and I'll send you MP3 files of Japanese audio lessons. They are really good!
Will look at them carefully after the GMAT! >> 13th November!!!!!
(save their links)
By the way, how is it going with your gmat studies?
I'm struggling with the verbal...it's been two weeks since i started studying, so perhaps i'll have to study more before seeing substantial results.
Oh yeah, I saw one of your posts concerning University grades for Hitotsubashi...(to Hyort)
In my opinion, Japanese Universities dont look at the GPA!! really!!
The Japanese, are more into "The EXAMS" = JUKEN!!
To give you an example, I didnt study for mid terms, finals at all!!!
My grades were 3.2/5.0 not good at all.
Instead, I spent my time on the JFSAT (Japanese version of the US SAT), eight subjects. Scored as the top five percent in Japan, 2001. 95th percentile. And succeed on the unversity exam as well.
The GPA measure is only for people who were on the boarder!!! This fact is very famous in japan.
So, focussing on the essays, work experience, recommendation letters, and the GMAT would be better!
By the way, how is your verbal score?
Have you tried the GMATprep? I tried it twice!
1st time: V = 27
2nd time: V = 28...sigh
So, here I am trying to look for inspiration upon how to improve my score!
