Japanese Language Proficiency Test 2007
The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) has four levels (4 is the lowest, 1 is the highest) and it is probably the most widely known and accepted test of Japanese ability. This year, it is being held on Sunday, December 2, 2006. This test is only held once a year, so it is important to remember to apply on time if you want to take it. The basic application period runs from July 2 to September 11, 2007. The application package costs 500 yen. The test itself costs 5500 yen.
