What is the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT)?
The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) is a test for foreigners to measure their Japanese proficiency. Every year, more than 500,000 foreigners take this test worldwide.
In fact, as the number of people learning Japanese around the world is increasing, the number of students taking the Japanese Language Proficiency Test is increasing every year.
Why do foreigners take this test?
Reasons to recommend this test
Please answer this question first.
- Are you wondering if your Japanese is correct?
- How much do you want to know your Japanese level?
- Want to learn correct Japanese grammar and expressions?
- Would you like to work in Japan as a doctor, nurse, caregiver, or other healthcare professional?
- Do you want Japanese friends at school or at work?
If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, you should take the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. From my experience teaching Japanese to international students, if you study hard for 10 months, you can pass the N3 or N4 level. You can buy your own textbook and study every day, or you can practice conversation with Japanese people. It is also possible to take Japanese classes for a reasonable amount of money.

Where can i take the exam
You can take the exam twice a year in various parts of Japan, and once or twice overseas.
If you are going to take the exam in Japan, you should apply as soon as possible. This is because there is a limit to the number of applicants for this exam.
Otherwise, you may end up receiving it in a different location than where you live.

Be patient and relax
Once you open the textbook, be sure to go through it to the end.
You should avoid opening multiple textbooks at the same time. If you want to try a different textbook, do it after finishing the first opened textbook. This is because different interpretations and teaching methods can be confusing and you will lose the confidence you once gained.
Also, studying Japanese is neither boring nor painful. Imagine what you can do in Japan in the future. You will have fun talking with your Japanese friends and colleagues. You can even read and watch your favorite manga and anime.
