Some facts about the Japanese

Japanese pronunciation is fairly simple, and the grammar is not as complicated as in other languages. There is no “tone” in Japanese. In Japanese conversation, you don’t have to say the subject of a sentence every time, and you can talk with just a verb or an adjective in a sentence. Therefore, it is said in this sense that Japanese is easier to learn than other languages.

However, Japanese people often use honorifics (forms of politeness in the language) and gender words depending on the position of the speaker in society, and often prefer to use ambiguous expressions and unclear answers. This is one of the reasons why words in the textbooks are different from the words actually spoken.

What is JLPT?

JLPT is an abbreviation for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test, which is a test to measure the Japanese language proficiency of people who do not speak Japanese as their mother tongue. The JLPT has five levels: N1, N2, N3, N4 and N5.

This test comprehensively measures your Japanese communication skills based on the three areas of “linguistic knowledge,” “reading comprehension,” and “listening comprehension.”
