Japanese (日本語)

Courses Information

We are leaders in providing Japanese language training by native Japanese trainers. Japanese ( Nihongo) is a language spoken by over 130 million people, mainly in Japan, but also by Japanese emigrant communities around the world. It is an agglutinative language and is distinguished by a complex system of honorifics reflecting the hierarchical nature of Japanese society, with verb forms and particular vocabulary to indicate the relative status of speaker, listener and the person mentioned in conversation. The sound inventory of Japanese is relatively small, and has a lexically distinct pitch-accent system.

As with all other languages, the Japanese language can be understood formally as a set of linguistic characteristics or subjectively as a way of experiencing and ordering the world. However, unlike other languages, Japanese is unique to both linguists and to the people speaking the language. The Japanese by and large believe their language to be a highly unique language—some believe it to be unlike any other language in existence. Western linguists believe that Japanese is a language clearly related to other, Northern Asian languages, but there is a fair amount of disagreement among them.

JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test)


All the levels are provided by Linguistic Academy, based on the JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test). The JLPT is conducted on the very first Sunday of the month July and December every year (twice a year in Japan and selected 61 more countries, including India, and once a year in other regions (on the first Sunday of December) by under joint organization of the Japan Foundation and Japan Educational Exchanges and Services a test to measure and certify the Japanese- language proficiency of those whose native language is not Japanese.

The JLPT has five levels: N1, N2, N3, N4, and N5. The easiest level is N5 and the most difficult level is N1.

N4 and N5 measure the level of understanding of basic Japanese mainly learned in class. N1and N2 measure the level of understanding of Japanese used in a broad range of scenes in actual everyday life. N3 is a bridging level between N1/N2 and N4/N5.

Linguistic competence required for the JLPT is expressed in terms of language activities, such as Reading and Listening. Language Knowledge, such as Vocabulary and Grammar, is also required for the successful execution of these activities.
