More JLPT Information

There are five levels in the JLPT. They are N1, N2, N3, N4, and N5. N5 is the easiest, while N1 is the most difficult.

The JLPT is only an approximate measure of your understanding of the Japanese language. You are tested in terms of Reading and Listening. Speaking and Writing is NOT part of the exam.

N4 and N5 tries to measure your language skills for basic communication, mainly learnt in the classroom from a teacher.

N1 and N2 try to measure your skills in a range of realistic situations found in everyday life.

N3 is the bridge between N4/5 and N1/2.

You can find out more information about the JLPT from the Official JLPT Website.
