Japanese Language Proficiency Test 2009

Japanese Language Proficiency Test

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (日本語能力試験 Nihongo Nōryoku Shiken?), or JLPT, is a standardized criterion-referenced test to evaluate and certify the Japanese language proficiency of non-native speakers. It is held twice a year in East Asia and once a year in other regions.[2] The JLPT has four levels, with Level 4 the most basic and Level 1 the most difficult. The Japan Foundation estimates that approximately 150 hours of study are necessary to pass the Level 4 exam and 900 hours of study are required to pass the Level 1 test,[3] although the figures may be significantly higher for native English speakers. In 2008, the Japanese government announced a plan under consideration to use the JLPT to screen applicants for long-term and permanent resident visas.[4]

as for now i guess u guys have manage to grab the general idea about what JLPT is all about. The thing is i have passed Level 4 in 2007. i was about to take Level 3 in december 2008 but something urgent came up on that particular day so to make it short i missed the exam.

now i`m considering myself to take Level 3 exam this year which means i need to register now in september. i just hope i have enough time to study all the japanese characters which i can barely recall most of them. sigh =/

should i? shouldnt i? hm..

here have a look and see for urself how certificate of Level 3 looks like

mine is similar but its Level 4 of course..

nice eh? do you think i should go for it?

any advice from manga and anime fans, haluuu...
