MIT will be one of the sites this year for the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) held in December.

The JLPT is an internationally accredited language examination that is offered in five different levels, designed to measure a person’s Japanese-language skills. Administered by the American Association of Teachers of Japanese, the test will be held at 15 cities across the country. Last year more than 4,500 people took the test in the US.

Masami Ikeda-Lamm, MIT lecturer in Japanese, told the Babel newsletter, “Over the last years, our students have been showing increasing interest in the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test. Now MIT is proud to be the host institution.”
