Level N2 Level N3 Level N4 Level N5 What's New
The JLPT Study Page is a resource of study materials for JLPT Levels N5 to N2
My Goal

JLPT is the Japanese Language Proficiency Test.
With this site and the JLPT Study Forum I hope to give people some idea of what to expect in the exam. I have typed out past exams, translated sentences and created some basic learning materials, such as quizzes, to help students check if they're on the right track.

The New JLPT from 2010

Since 2010, the levels have changed and there are no longer any official lists - see a Comparison of New and Old Tests. For more information, see the JLPT Wiki Page

Background

I set out to take my first JLPT exam in 2004 and while some information was available on the internet, I was never clear.

Importantly, I was never quite sure what was in the official list - or even whether an official list existed.

I passed level 4 in (2004) and then level 3 (2005), and started to create web pages as part of my study regime. I found out about & purchased the official Test Content Specification to make sure that everything I had was what I was supposed to know. In other words, I purchased the official lists.

I found that many "JLPT lists" available on the internet were either old or contained a lot of mistakes. So I typed them up myself and checked everything with my Test Content Specification - which is where this site comes in. It is a compendium of all my study efforts and a bit of extra stuff - just for the fun of maintaining a web site.
