What is the JLPT?

The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) is an internationally recognised evaluation and certification of Japanese-language proficiency.
In 2012, over 572,000 people took the test in 64 countries and areas worldwide. It is the largest Japanese language test in the world.


The JLPT advantage

In Japan, the JLPT is taken into consideration for preferential immigration treatment as well as an eligibility for various national exams. Outside Japan, the JLPT is widely recognised across corporate and government sectors as a benchmark for proficiency measurement. It is also a strong motivator for students of Japanese language and allows learners to accurately gauge the level of their ability.
