Japanese Language Test


JLPT stands for Japanese Language Proficiency Test. It is a standardized test for non-native Japanese speakers that evaluates and certifies their proficiency in the Japanese language. The test is administered by the Japan Foundation and the Japan Educational Exchanges and Services, and it is held twice a year in various locations around the world.

The JLPT is divided into five levels, with level N5 being the most basic and level N1 being the most advanced. Each level tests the examinee’s ability in reading, writing, listening, and grammar. The test is used by companies and organizations in Japan to assess the Japanese language proficiency of non-native speakers for employment purposes, as well as by individuals who want to study or work in Japan.


The JFT-Basic is an online test that assesses basic communication skills in Japanese for everyday situations, while the JFT-Standard measures overall Japanese language proficiency, including listening, reading, and writing skills.


This test is primarily designed to assess the Japanese language communication skills of non-native speakers. It consists of five levels, referred to as JCT1, JCT2, JCT3, JCT4, and JCT5.
