What is the JLPT?

The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) has been offered by The Japan Foundation and Japan Educational Exchanges and Services (JEES) since 1984 as a reliable means to evaluate and certify the Japanese proficiency of non-native speakers. In 2011, there were as many as 610,000 applicants throughout the world. Langara is very honoured to host the JLPT in collaboration with the Japan Foundation. Over time, test applicants became diversified, and use of JLPT results has expanded to include employment screening and evaluation for promotions and pay raises. Many outstanding suggestions for improvement were also submitted by a wide variety of individuals around the world.
