Take the JLPT in Colorado!

The Japanese Language Proficiency Test, or JLPT, is the go-to measure for assessing non-native Japanese language ability. The test is held in only a few cities in the United States, and this year Boulder, Colorado has been added as one of the testing sites!

The JLPT will be held on Sunday, December 7th, 2014 at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

Registration will be open until 7pm Mountain Time, October 3rd, 2014.

The JLPT is available in five different levels from N1 to N5, with N1 being the most difficult, all levels will be tested on December 7th. Registration fees are $60 for N1 and N2 level tests, $50 for N3, N4 and N5 levels tests.

Please visit this website for more information and to register online for the JLPT.

がんばって to any and all JLPT test takers!
