The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) will be held for the fourth time in Armenia to determine the level of Japanese language proficiency among people for whom Japanese is not their mother tongue.
The exam is held annually on the same day in all participating countries. If the test passed, the applicant is issued a certificate of international standard, accepted by most Japanese organizations. The JLPT test in Armenia is conducted by the Association of Japanese Language Teachers with the assistance of the Japan Foundation. The Japanese Language Teachers Association was established in 2011. The president of the Association is Karine Karamyan, practically the first teacher of the Japanese language in Armenia. Here, Japanese teachers meet, exchange experiences, and hold various competitions between students. The association collaborates with the Japanese Embassy and the Japan Foundation.
