Japanese Proficiency Test
The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) is a test to measure and certify the Japanese-language proficiency of those whose native language is not Japanese. Test results are widely used by professionals seeking employment at Japanese companies and students seeking acceptance at Japanese educational institutions to certify their language proficiency.
The test has five levels, from N5 for beginners to N1 for advanced students. Writing, reading, listening, vocabulary and grammar skills are all tested during the 1.5 to 3 hour test. The JLPT is held twice a year, in July and December, in various cities inside and outside of Japan
