The JLPT can help you to achieve your personal and professional goals. Read the testimonials from some Adelaide residents below.


"The JLPT gave focus to my Japanese studies and a benchmark to aspire to over many years. It is the most widely-recognized test by employers of Japanese proficiency. The test gave me strong foundations and confidence to apply my language skills in business situations. I have since used Japanese on a daily basis in my work for over 13 years."

Ben Sparrow - Director, Shinka Management Pty Ltd


"Studying for the JLPT was an excellent way to push my Japanese proficiency to levels that I would not have achieved through general study. The test was an excellent motivator, providing both short-term and long-term goals, as well as regular verification that my Japanese had improved. The test fee is very reasonable and professionally administered, the test content is practical and modern, and after learning various grammar patterns and vocabulary I often found these in common use in newspapers or on the radio in Japan. After passing level 1 of the test, I had the required language skills to gain a Diploma of Interpreting. I plan to work in Japan in the future, and feel confident that I have the required language skills to do so after passing the test."

The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) in Adelaide












What is the JLPT?

The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) is an internationally recognised evaluation and certification of Japanese-language proficiency. In 2018, over 1 million people took the test in 86 countries and areas worldwide. It is the largest Japanese language test in the world.

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.
