JLPT Preparation Course

JLPT Preparation Course ※ 1st term: March - mid June , 2nd term: Aug - mid Nov

A must for dedicated learners or those seeking employment in Japan, the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) measures your non-native Japanese ability. This course provides the necessary skills to pass the test with ease, and to achieve the highest score possible (Your Japanese ability should match the JLPT level you wish to take. We provide a JLPT mock exam-see p.12.)

・ Are planning to take the JLPT

・ Are not taking the JLPT yet, but believe the JLPT test-taking strategies will benefit you in the future

・ Wish to learn valuable tips and tricks to help you ace the test

・ Are having trouble passing the test, and want expert advice on how to change your study methods


Joint Lessons combine group lessons with private lessons for more effective learning. You may start the private lessons at any time, and they may be used up until the end of the month that your group course is completed (Private lessons : a custom-made curriculum just for you).


・ Do not want to wait until regular courses start

・ Want to simultaneously boost comprehensive skills (group lesson) and deepen specific knowledge (private lesson)

・ Want to study for work, travel, and use language for a wide variety of purposes

・ Want to catch up when you miss a class or need some additional review

Since my enrollment at Global Village, I’ve been able to conduct business such as making trip reserv ations with a J apanese Airline and with a Tokyo Hotel over the phone for my boss. Now, I can generally understand Japanese newscasters when I watch the ne ws. T he le ssons are an even mix of challenges. T he teachers have a wealth of knowledge and they use many methods. T he fr iendly sta ff spea ks with studen ts i n ei ther Japanese or English. The customer service is Top Notch!

Also, the Global Village e vents offe r us the ideal se tting to practice our conversational skills with native speakers in a fun social atmosphere. Starting from zero, we successfully passed the JLPT.
