JLPT Information Sessions
These sessions aimed to give candidates and teachers information about the new Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). Over 90 people attended in London on September 14th, and around 40 came to the session in Edinburgh on September 21st 2011. Participants were given the chance to try sample questions and ask about the exam.
The event included:
- A General overview about the new JLPT exam
- Information about the differences to the old-style JLPT
- Introduction of example questions
- Introduction of possible study resources
- Current statistics about the JLPT in the UK and across the world based on official JLPT data.
- Guidance for applicants who plan to take the JLPT in the UK
One participant commented that they were ‘really pleased that none of the items were hurried and it was a very accessible event.’ Another mentioned ‘I enjoyed the session. It was very informative and I look forward to studying for and passing the JLPT; first N3 then N2 and eventually N1.’ We hope that it was useful and that it will encourage people to take the plunge and apply to take the test in the UK.
At the end of the evening Japan Foundation Staff gave away copies of the New Japanese-Language Proficiency Test Guidbooks. However if you missed out but would still like to find out more, you download resources from the JLPT website here.
If there is sufficient demand, we will run a similar event in 2012. So watch out for more information on the Japan Foundation website and e-bulletin.
