Actually I'm not quite sure about whether this question should go to the learning tips subcategory or here.
I've studied a year japanese in a class of 10 students.Sensei was phenomenal but thing is pace was slow (6 hours a week) and the other students in the class were very noisy. I am supposed to take N5 in 6 months time but I have to pay in advance in about 15 days the fee for the whole year if I am to continue there. I really don't want to risk getting in a bad class again cause that leaves much additional work at home.
I aced the annual test we take, which is level N5 too, but I really don't want to spent so much time of my life there for work that most of the times I have to do home. What do you think? Can someone go all the way (let's say at least N3-N2) knowing the basics, without any help from a proffesor or a class enviroment? Would I be able to get through the levels only with personal study?
Please be so kind to correct any errors I make while writing in Japanese.
I'll greatly appreciate it!
