For Jeremy - Criteria for JLPT Skritter Lists?

Hey Jeremy,

A question came up on the koohii forum that made me wonder - what criteria did you use to build the JLPT vocab lists that you published? I’ve been using them for my core study of kanji writing and find them super useful, but was wondering how you approximated the word sets for the various exam levels.



Hey J!

This can be tricky, so I’m glad to hear it seems to be fairly spot on based on the tests you’ve taken. These were compiled awhile ago now, and could probably use some modification. The data was approximated based on previous tests and predictions of what might be included.
