Where can I take it?

Postby LunarEclipse » Wed 07.06.2005 9:46 am

Is it offered at my local college? Or is it something I send in? Btw, I live in the U.S.

I personally would teach yourself, colleges and schools will teach you WAY too slow. Here's a recommended way to start out:

Learn Hiragana and Katakana, the first two alphabets of Japanese. They're easy to learn and this site offers a great way to learn. For hiragana go the grammar section and look for it at the top. For katakana, Clay is posting the aritcles for them as he makes them.

After that, start with grammar and learn a few words, basic sentences, etc. Again, this site is great for that.

After that, it's mostly up to you. I'd start learning the Kanji and building your vocabulary and garmmar along with that.

In the USA, There are very few testing centers.

Atlanta
Chicago
Honolulu
Los Angeles
New York
San Francisco
Seattle
Washington DC

That seems to be it for America. You can find more information on the LA site at http://www.jflalc.org/?act=tpt&id=24.

The test is very strict about when you go, what you do, etc. You can't take the test home, you never get to see your own answers after you turn them in. It's an all day affair, and is kind of expensives (50 dollars in Japan)

What level are you thinking of going for?

Are you referring to the language itself or the JLPT?

Where I live, there is nothing close to a Japanese class at school. The only language offered at my high school is Spanish, and I really doubt very many schools have a Japanese language class.

I'll be teaching myself for sure. But I was wondering where I could take the JLPT. I'll most likely start off with lvl 4, as I am a beginner and just started learning.

LOL sorry, I always assume that people ask where to study Japanese, not take the JLPT, until it hit me that this is under the JLPT section. :/

i'm thinking of taking the JLPT level 4 in chicago this december. i'll have to drive a good six or eight hours to get there, but my japanese penpal will be visiting in december, and i want her to see a famous american city anyway. i think i'll ace level 4 no sweat, which tempts me to study for level 3, but vocabulary is by far my weakest point. i think the 800 words of level 4 is a more reasonable goal, even if i could handle level 3 kanji and grammar....

I was thinking about taking the test in Chicago this year too. Since I'm a new learner (1 year) I'll probably go for level 4.
