What is the JLPT?
The Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) was developed in Japan, and has been offered since 1984 in countries all around the world as a means of evaluating the proficiency of non-native learners of Japanese.
In the beginning, there were approximately 7,000 examinees worldwide. By 2011, there were more than 600,000 examinees in more than 60 countries.
In the United States, more than 5,500 people took the JLPT in 2016. In 2017, the test will be administered at 17 test sites located around the country. The test is administered just once a year in the US, on the first Sunday of December.
