Anyone got advice for someone like me who did N5 and passed it for a while, but thinking of going back to language school to study for the total equivalent of N4?

PS - Using the Minna no Nihongo books only, so I kinda used it as a basis for checking courses.

Bumping. Need help since I have a problem to explain that I have two older brothers. Not sure how to do it...

You use the word 兄(あに) when talking about your elder brother to outsiders.

兄が二人います。
二人の兄がいます。

You can call your eldest brother 長兄 and your second brother 次兄 when talking about them to outsiders.

If say, your second brother is older than you by two years old and your eldest brother is older than you by five years, you can say
(私には)五つ上の長兄と二つ上の次兄がいます。

There are many ways to say the same thing and I'm just keeping it simple.

Something to keep in mind. Thanks.
