Application for the 3rd Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) will be accepted from August 2 to September 15, 2010 at the Embassy of Japan.
On Sunday, December 5, the Embassy of Japan in cooperation with the Japan Foundation will conduct the 3rd Japanese Language Proficiency Test under the theme “The Gateway to Japan!” at the Chancellor Hall of UBD, according to a press release from the Embassy of Japan in Brunei.
“This JLPT is the world’s largest Japanese language test which is conducted annually in Japan and 53 countries to evaluate and certify the Japanese language proficiency of non-native speakers. More than 770,000 people have made the most of the test for their further studies in Japan, businesses opportunities or hobbies to enjoy the Japanese culture such as music and Mime.
“Moreover, the test has been made even more useful for Bruneian examinees after the Embassy started conducting the JLPT in Brunei Darussalam two years ago prior to which they had to go to Sabah University, Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia to take the JLPT.
“The JLPT was reformed in order to enhance the quality of test, and now provides 5 levels (N1, N2, N3, N4, N5) instead of 4 ranging from N1 as the most advanced level to N5 as the beginner’s one. The N3 level is newly established which is comparable to a level between Level 2 and Level 3 in the old test. Increasing the number of levels allows examinees to choose a more precise level based on their ability.
“The details are available on the website of the Embassy, http://www.bn.emb-japan.go.jp.
“Application forms which cost B$5 are now available at the cultural section of the Embassy and need to be registered before September 15, 2010. An application fee of B$30 will be charged for each test grade.
“The Embassy of Japan hopes that many Bruneians will take this opportunity to try the test and make it their gateway to Japan,” said the press release.
