The 2013 Japanese Language Proficiency Test in Canada
Sunday, December 1 in Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver
Registration open from Sept. 1 - Oct. 4
The Japanese Language Proficiency Test is designed to evaluate and certify the language proficiency of learners of the Japanese language. In Canada, the Japanese Language Proficiency Test is offered in Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver.
The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) was first held in 1984
by the Japan Foundation and Japan Educational Exchanges and Services (JEES)
in order to measure and certify Japanese language learners. Although only 7,000
people took the test in its first year, the number of examinees rose to about
770,000 by 2009. The JLPT is now the largest-scale Japanese language examination
in the world.

The JLPT Self-evaluation Can-do list is based on the self-evaluation results of test takers on what they think they should be able to achieve in Japanese in order to pass each of the JLPT levels. Therefore, the JLPT Self-evaluation Can-do List is not a syllabus for the content of questions that appear on the test, and it does not serve as a guarantee for Japanese proficiency of those who pass the test. This list can be used as a reference for test takers and individuals to build an image of what a person who passes a certain level can achieve using Japanese.
For Japanese proficiency measured by the JLPT and question contents, please refer to reference materials such as “Summary of linguistic competence required for each level”, “Example questions”, “New Japanese-Language Proficiency Test Guidebook, Section II (in Japanese)” and so on.
