The TOPJ Practical Japanese Proficiency Test is a test developed by experts and professors who are actively involved in the field of Japanese language education in Japan and abroad. This test is designed not only to measure the basic abilities of learners who are studying Japanese as a foreign language, such as vocabulary, grammar, and sentence patterns, but also to evaluate their ability to communicate in the daily life and work situations of foreigners living in Japan. The questions in the test also aim to assess the learners' understanding of the customs and culture of Japanese society and Japanese companies. Therefore, in addition to mastering the basics of the language, learners can also deepen their ability to adapt to Japanese society as a whole.
The TOPJ Practical Japanese Proficiency Test is divided into three levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. When applying to study in Japan, the results of this test can be used as proof of language proficiency, similar to the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. For instance, if you obtain a beginner's A, it indicates that you have sufficient ability to study at a Japanese language institution in Japan. On the other hand, if you achieve an advanced A, it shows that you can work in Japanese society or a Japanese company, with a certain level of adaptability, and can handle tasks such as interpreting for Japanese companies.
