The Japanese Language Proficiency Test or JLPT is the world’s largest standardized test that measures Japanese language proficiency for people who do not speak Japanese as their mother tongue (non-native speakers). JLPT has been implemented for evaluating Japanese language knowledge, reading ability, and listening ability. Outside Japan, this test has been twice a year in July and December. To ensure the continuing relevancy and accuracy of the JLPT, the Japan Foundation and JEES (Japan Educational Exchanges and Services) introduced a revised version of the test in 2010.
