Hi to all.
i am prepared for the Japanese-language proficiency test N2 in 12.2017.
today, i have some questions.
anyone can help me?

three sentences, i cannot understand them very well... dont know the meaning...

1: まだ古いのが残っているから、使いきってから新しいのを使おう
2: 勉强していないところにかぎって、试験に出る
3: 生徒がやる気を出さないかぎり、いくら先生が一所懸命教えても上達しないでしょう

thanks in advance
BR,
Laura

Welcome to the forum.

Hint:

〜きる is from 切る
〜かぎり is from 限る

What is your best guess about the meaning of them?

For #1, the two halves of the sentence on each side of the 〜きる give a great hint about its meaning.

(Japanese writes it 試験, by the way.)

in Google translate:

1: Since it is still old, let's use the new one after using it up
2: Only in areas where you are not studying, go to the exam
3: As long as the students do not motivate, no matter how much teacher teaches hard you will not improve.

correct?

it seems No.2 cannot read well

2: Only in areas where you are not studying, go to the exam
にかぎって means ''just as the moment...'', ''right at the place I didn't study''
I think the rest is correct, but it seems you don't grasp the meaning of the answers yet.

ところ = place, spot, point.
You must give your translation of the answers, other wise it won't help you.

If you are at the level to be studying for N2 why on earth would you be using Google? I'm personally studying for N4 and I know google translate is a pile of garbage. Also isn't this the 日本語で勉強 section? I would think we would want to post according to sub-forum rules or move the thread, but I'm not a mod and that's just my opinion on the matter.
