JLPT stands for “Japanese Language Proficiency Test” (日本語能力試験 Nihongo NōryokuShiken) and is administered in Japan by the Ministry of Education and overseas by the Japan Foundation.
The JLPT is an internationally known test, held worldwide, to evaluate and certify the proficiency in Japanese of non-native speakers. The test has been held since 1984. In 2017 JLPT will be offered in July and December in Hong Kong.
We hope that he redouble his efforts to tackle the new challenge of passing the Level N1 next year.
