Here is a self-study book for those who wish to develop their vocabulary skills to pass the N2 level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. It can also be used by upper intermediate learners who want to remember how to use abstract words and words in formal expressions.
The 2,200 words needed for the upper intermediate level are arranged by their grammatical function and category (e.g., Economics, Medical Treatment, the Arts, etc.). The book also allows the learner to learn commonly used compound words, derivative words, and expressions related to the words under study
After roughly every 200 words, there is a reading passage allowing the learner to confirm how well he/she has grasped the words studied as well as how the words are actually used in sentences.
The translation of the words, examples sentences and reading passages comes with a red plastic cover sheet for testing/review purposes. The translation is in English, Chinese, and Vietnamese.
A free-of-charge App allowing the learner to listen to the words and reading passages in the book is also available.
