Next step after RTK 1

I will finish the RTK 1 list today and am wondering what to study next. I’ve looked at the list for book 3, but I’m not sure how useful it will be. I’m currently studying for the Kanken level pre-2, aiming for 2 or even pre-1 after that.

More generally, I passed N1 in 2014 and have been in limbo since then. I am looking to receiving other professional qualifications in Japan, but I would like to get my Japanese closer to native-level before taking the exam. It would be great to know what everyone has done to continuously improve their Japanese. Thanks!

Hi Nicole! At the level you’re at, I’d say you should create custom lists of things you encounter that you aren’t familiar with instead of using premade lists that you didn’t create yourself.
