Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) - 2024
  1. Japan Language Proficiency Test (JLPT)
The Japanese Language Proficiency Test or JLPT is a standardized criterion-reference test to evaluate and certify Japanese Language Proficiency for non-native speakers, covering language knowledge, reading ability, and listening ability. JLPT has been offered by the Japan Foundation and Japan Education Exchanges and Services (Formally association of International Education, Japan) since 1984 as a reliable means of evaluating and certifying the Japanese proficiency of non-native speakers. JLPT certificates offer various advantages, ranging from recognition as academic credit and graduation certification at school to preferential treatment at companies and acknowledgement of qualification in society.
