JLPT Preparation Course


Students from non-kanji countries can pass N1 & N2

The JLPT Preparation Course is designed for students who are preparing for the JLPT N1 or N2 exam that takes place twice a year in July and December. The course is especially developed for students from non-kanji countries.

  • The lesson covers all the subjects that JLPT consists of: "vocabulary", "grammar", "reading comprehension" and "listening comprehension".
  • Emphasis is placed on reading comprehension, which is a major component of the JLPT exam. Students are trained to efficiently extract the relevant information in given texts by fast reading and analysis.
  • Students are given tests at the beginning and end of the course in order to assess their achievement.
  • Each student will have an individual counseling with their teachers and receive advice on how to further improve and successfully pass the JLPT exam.

Voices from successful students

Here are some happy comments from students who successfully passed JLPT after taking our courses.

Gabriele GiraudoSearching a summer course in Japan focused on JLPT N2 preparation on the Internet, I found out that Kai School was organizing a summer course perfect for my needs and, so, I decided to enroll in it. It was really interesting and well organized, I enjoyed it very much. Moreover I was able to pass JLPT N2 in December 2013 with a good mark! I was really happy! I can say without any doubt that Kai School summer course was really helpful in achieving this great result.

Today the result for the NOKEN test from last December came out. I am proud to inform you that I passed N2 level :) Thank you very much for your help, I couldn't have done it without assisting the N2 Preparation Course last summer. Please, do extend my thanks to my teachers there and all of the Staff.
