JLPT canceled, JFT-Basic to serve as alternative

THE Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) has been canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Those who have been preparing for the JLPT can take the JFT-Basic instead.

The JFT-Basic uses computers to administer its tests. The test center also properly observes social distancing and other coronavirus preventive measures. For more details on the test, one can check the test questions on the JFT-Basic webpage at

Those who register as a group or organization must register at least 15 days before their preferred test days; while those who register individually must register at least three days before their test.
