Japanese Level Check
Please select the level check test that matches your ability level:
|Test||Appropriate ability levels|
|Beginner 1||From complete beginners to students who can hold simple conversations. Must be able to read hiragana!
Note: If the test result shows that you belong in the complete beginner class, you must start on the first Monday of a month.
|Beginner 2||Can hold simple conversations. Equivalent to having finished Minna no Nihongo book 1 or Genki Japanese book 1, or having passed level 4 of the Japanese Proficiency Test.|
|Intermediate||Have some confidence in everyday conversations, and can read texts written using simple Kanji. Equivalent to having finished Minna no Nihongo book 2 or Genki Japanese book 2, or having passed level 3 of the Japanese Proficiency Test. (Students above this level should also take this test.)|
If the test you select is too easy or too hard, please feel free to switch to a different test partway through. In addition, if the results of your test are very good or very bad, we may ask you to take one of the other tests too.
