Up to which JLPT level is duolingo recommended ?

Hi all,

Big greetings to everybody who study Japanese !

I am new here at Duolingo, and I just passed the JLPT N5 level test a while ago. So far in the last days I started study here a I feel easy going.

I want to try now to go for N4 level, so I wonder if I do the whole study tree I have enough skills to be able to pass JLPT N4 ?

The new tree is built around the N4, but the old one, which you have, is meant to get you to N5. The new tree is currently in A/B testing.

I'm not sure even the new tree would get you to N4 on its own, to be honest. Vocab and grammar might be fine (might), but you don't get any 読解/聴解 practice on here, so you're gonna have to at least practice those elsewhere.


Tanks for the replys and infos ! I hope new tree will be released soon. But I also enjoy study the current one. Actually I realy enjoy the style how duolingo is made, it has given me new motivation to keep going on.

I think I understand that with duolingo alone, it might be difficult to come to N4 level, so I will keep using my old fahioned textbooks, flashcards etc. beside.
