Websites for learning Japanese

Besides going to Japan, going to college, and going to school at night to learn Japanese, there are many other sites where you can use the Internet to study.
Many of the websites for learning Japanese are almost free, and you can get the lessons you need.
The best way to actually use and master what you learn here, and to ask questions about things you don’t understand, is to study with a hybrid of Japanese tutors.

What is the JLPT Japanese-Language Proficiency Test?

The JLPT stands for Japanese-Language Proficiency Test, and it is a test to assess Japanese language proficiency for non-native speakers of Japanese.
There are five levels of JLPT: N1, N2, N3, N4, and N5, and the difficulty level increases as the number decreases.
The test comprehensively measures your Japanese communication skills through the three components of language knowledge, reading comprehension, and listening comprehension.
If you apply for the test and get a passing score or higher, you will be awarded the certification.
The test is held twice a year, in early July and early December.
Many people who take the JLPT for work take the test because it is advantageous for finding a job, getting a raise, or getting a promotion in Japan or their home country if they hold the JLPT certification.
