About the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test

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

The JLPT is held in Manila, Cebu and Davao on the first Sunday of July and on the first Sunday of December.
