Because I had a lot of time on my hands the past couple of days, and I found the next 100 words to be fairly easy to someone studying for the N1 level (a lot are reviews it seems, as I learned them while studying for N2, and a lot of katakana words too), I decided to study and upload a whole batch of 100 words at a time.

Of course, if these are new or difficult to you, you can study them at your own pace, but because this is my entire study session for the day here, I am uploading them all at once.

Hope it’s helpful!
