Japanese proficiency

Japanese studies:
Started studying in HS in 1999. First teacher was great, following two teachers sucked, so pretty much after the first year I'm completely self taught.

Time spent in Japan:
I've lived in Japan for 3 years 5 months (as of October 06) Still here. Before moving here I visited Japan 3 times for 3 months each time.

For more info about the JLPT 1 and a practice test:

Quote:
The examinee has mastered grammar to a high level, konws around 2,000 kanji and 10,000 words, and has an integrated command of the language sufficient for life in Japanese society. This level is normally reached after studying Japanese for around 900 hours.
Practice test: http://www.kanjistep.com/en/online/weeklytest/intro.html (for grades 2-4)

Additional qualifications:
I've been translating for a little over two years.
