Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT)

About the JLPT

The Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) is largest-scale Japanese language test in the world. Since 1984, the Japan Foundation and Japan Educational Exchanges and Services have continued to offer the JLPT as a reliable means of evaluating the Japanese proficiency of non-native speakers. The JLPT is widely recognised across corporate and government sectors as a benchmark for proficiency measurement, and is also a strong motivator for students of Japanese language.

In 2018, the JLPT will be offered in Australia in both July and December in selected cities.

For further information about tests held in other countries, please refer to this list of overseas test sites.
