  • Preparation for this course


    This Japanese course contains vocabulary, expressions, and grammar arranged to correspond to the Japanese level needed for the JLPT N1. Furthermore, in order to advance communication proficiency in Japanese, you can watch these video lessons that show actual N1 level Japanese being used in daily conversations. All of the narration contains English subtitles, so that those learning Japanese for the first time can easily study the materials. 


    ---By the end of the course, learners will be able to do the following:

    1. Be able to understand Japanese used in everyday situations
    2. Be able to read materials written clearly on a variety of topics, such as articles and commentaries in newspapers and magazines as well as simple critiques, and comprehend their contents.
    3. Be able to understand and speak topics of everyday situations as well as in a variety of settings.
    4. Be able to speak and understand advanced business Japanese.

    How to use these study materials 

    Make sure to download the files below first before you start studying.

    Please note that you need at least 80% correct on the comprehension tests to continue to the next lesson.
