JLPT Preparation Course

The courses are preparatory for passing JLPT N2 or N3 levels.
This course is especially targeted for students coming from countries where kanjis are not used. In four weeks we will do kanji, grammar, reading comprehension and listening comprehension practices.
Before coming to Japan there will be a Japanese level test that will measure your level in Japanese.
At the day of the course completion we will do one more test to see if you have reached your goals and to find out the results of studying for four weeks.
You can register to take the JLPT Test in Kyoto here You are able to use the school address to register, but please contact us and complete your registration in advance.

Course Period

Due to the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have canceled our 2023 JLPT course.

Lessons take place for 3 hours a day, however, the course involves a lot of homework, and students should be prepared for around 3 hours a day of necessary class preparation, homework and self-study. The JLPT course fees are ONLY for the afternoon sessions. Students wishing to study in our morning group classes should also enroll for the Standard Course over their study period.
